(im suggesting the other guy acted like a jerk, you actually acted with tact, which is highly iregular with photographers
seeing we have a camera, and we think every view is ours for the taking, and to hell with the people who say NO )
its a fine line ...

If it is on film, the film will have to be surrendered — there is no second option.You will potentially lose everything on that roll (there have apparently been a lot of this happening in Perth, Sydney and Brisbane!), not just the dramatic angles featuring planes etc. The photography is not allowed, and that's it — there is no half-way point of giving an undertaking to separate the offending photographs from the rest of the benign images on the roll of film. The onus is on the photographer to be aware of regulations and rules and adhere to them. There will always be rambo types in photography thinking they can do what they want — to some extent it is their actions which have painted all other photographers with the same brush.
No real restrictions here in NZ, except (from memory) in Customs sand immigration. When I was based in Queenstown, we'd (politely) stop people from taking pictures when embarking/disembarking the aircraft as they were crossing the tarmac. This was purely for the reasons of safety and to get the passengers off the operational area in an orderly fashion. Once they were (still airside btw) on the walkway behind the railings they were more than welcome to take as many photographs as they wished.
There is nothing, absolutely nothing, half so much worth doing, as simply messing about in boats
Well, if you have a camera with multiexposure, you can just blank the frame with a long exposure.

I behave respecfully with a camera and I have not had any confrontations at all. I have deleted a few digital images because the subject was uncomfortable with the way they came out in the photo, but it was done in a mutually friendly tone.
This is very true.

How could anyone want that?

When I was boarding a jet couple of years ago, I asked the pilot sitting in the cockpit if I could take a couple of pictures. He turned my way, smiled and told me to shoot away.
Here is U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) official policy regarding photography and filming. Of course, individual airports might have different policies. Why not just check with the police when you get to the airport to see if there will be any problems?
TSA does not prohibit the public, passengers or press from photographing, videotaping or filming at security checkpoints, as long as the screening process is not interfered with or slowed down. We do ask you to not film or take pictures of the monitors. While the TSA does not prohibit photographs at screening locations, local laws, state statutes, or local ordinances might.
Taking photographs may also prompt airport police or a TSA official to ask what your purpose is. It is recommended that you use the Talk To TSA program on tsa.gov to contact the Customer Support Manager at the airport to determine its specific policy. Or, if you are a member of the press, you should contact the TSA Office of Public Affairs.

Here is the link for the Port Authority of NY and NJ. (PONYA) They run Kennedy and Newark Int'l Airports and LaGuardia as well as marine ports, rails, etc in the NYC Metro area. Notice that their restrictions are only for terminals they run like the International Arrivals Building at Kennedy. Individual terminals owned and operated by airlines such as Delta, British Airways, Jet Blue, etc. have their own rules. I'm not a lawyer, but since these are privately owned terminals, I believe they are legally entitled to make their own rules while you are in their property. This link provides phone numbers of who to call to get information in advance. Click on the Videotaping/Photographing at Port Authority Facilities tab.
