There’s no such thing as flying the friendly skies when the Jersey Shore cast is on board: the kids acted up on their flight from Los Angeles to New York last week, according to a passenger who characterized the behavior of reality TV's newest darlings as "obnoxious, pushy and entitled."
The kids -- most notably Mike "the Situation" Sorrentino, Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and Jenni "JWoWW" Farley, according to the NY Post -- started in with the attitude even before boarding the five-hour, cross-country flight back to the Garden State.
"Their speaking voices were never quieter than a yell," a witness told the paper. "As other passengers waited, scanners were constantly being set off by some new found piece of metal jewelry they were covered in. The whole process of getting them to their departure gate was treated as if President Obama was visiting Iraq."
The rudeness continued on the plane, the witness said, noting that other celebs on the flight -- including R&B legend Diana Ross and 30 Rock's Cheyenne Jackson -- were far more low-key and amiable than the brash reality TV breakouts.
Hey, at least no one was punched; new episodes of Jersey Shore air on MTV Thursdays at 10/9c.
