Twink on a PlaneFlying is tedious. Cramped quarters, stale air and crying babies are just some of the annoying-at-best obstacles that greet passengers on a daily basis.

His version of “fun,” however, is up for debate. While we might agree that donning a speedo and and plastic pool floaty while strutting down the aisle could potentially be fun, American Airlines and the rest of the passengers on board weren’t as easily convinced. Go figure.
