You may think you're upset about overweight baggage fees, but in Spain, there was revolt.

The discount carrier RyanAir kicked 100 passengers off a flight after they rose up in protest over a baggage fee.

RyanAir put out a statement saying the so-called "mutiny" began when a student refused to pay for his oversized bag.

Pretty soon scores of passengers came to the student's defense. Police were called, the flight was delayed three hours, and the bag-fee protesters were not allowed back on the plane.
