The incident took place on an American Airlines flight that was waiting to depart from Miami on the way to Los Angeles. According to a report by the Daily Mail, the woman became enraged and accused her boyfriend, identified as Memo, of looking at another woman.
“You wanna f***ing look at other women?” the woman shouted.
As the altercation escalated, the woman repeatedly screamed at Memo. She told him to “shut the f*** up” and shouted, “Yeah, you better believe that I wear the f***ing nuts in public, n*****.”
The situation quickly deteriorated. A member of the cabin crew tried to intervene, pointing out that there was a young child nearby.
A flight attendant tried to get the woman off the plane, asking her to bring her bags to the front. Then, the furious woman threatened her boyfriend, saying that if he didn’t come with her, he’d never see her again and that if he tried to go to her house, “I’ll call the police on you.”
Then, the woman seems to slap Memo.
The cabin crew then asks Memo to head toward the front of the plane to escape his girlfriend, but the woman chases him down the aisle, hits him in the head with a laptop, and repeatedly shoves and slaps him.
The woman eventually grabs her luggage and exits the plane. On the way out, the captain informed her that she was going to face assault charges.
“Fine, whatever,” the woman replies.
American Airlines released a statement after the incident.
“Prior to departure from the gate on Sunday at Miami International Airport, two passengers who were traveling together were involved in a dispute,” said American Airlines.
“Law enforcement was requested, and both passengers were removed from the aircraft.”
“We thank the American crew who worked quickly to diffuse the situation,” the statement continued. “Their actions resulted in a safe environment for all of our passengers.”
