A 32 year old woman had boarded JetBlue’s Fort Lauderdale – Las Vegas flight 7 on Wednesday when she discovered she was seated next to a child and — according to the arrest report — declared this wasn’t going to ‘expletive’ work because she’s been drinking all day. Things went downhill from there.
The woman hadn’t waited for Las Vegas – or even takeoff – to start drinking, and her behavior wasn’t going to get to Vegas in order to stay there.
She took it upon herself to change seats. But she didn’t like the new passengers she found near her and “proceeded to have loud profanity-laced outbursts.” She spit at passengers.
Flight attendants called the police and had her removed. Officers brought out a spit mask. But she didn’t go quietly. On her way out she blows kisses at passengers and declares she’d “see them in Vegas in an hour.”
She may have been drinking but she was surprisingly self aware — she noted she was being filmed, and several times declared that this should go viral, so she apparently got her wish (although she also noted she’d be embarrassed when her mom saw it the next day).
By the way if you prefer video without the expletives bleeped out, you can find that here at its original source.
Arresting officers report that she tried to get back onto the aircraft after she was removed. A gate agent blocked her, and the woman hit the agent.
Police put her in a wheelchair, handcuffs and in leg restraints, preventing her from kicking people and rolling her out the airport.
According to JetBlue,
On Thursday, February 14 – during the boarding of flight 7 from Fort Lauderdale to Las Vegas – crewmembers reported a disruptive customer onboard. Local law enforcement was called and the customer was removed from the flight. Additional details should be directed to Broward County Sheriff’s Office.
