Wild footage from a Spirit Airlines flight to Minneapolis, Minnesota, shows a passenger who began smoking mid-flight, breaking one of the cardinal rules of air travel.

People just don't think. He was probably on his 30th cigarette for the day and high as a kite. He shudda got kicked off the flight. People that backchat the stewards/stewardess get kicked off, why wasn't he if he was "visibly intoxicated"?
