A foul-mouthed passenger angry over a delayed Delta Connection flight made her opinion known…a little too known. But the captain’s reaction is priceless.
I think humans, myself included, should do better at not poking fun at the downfall of others. In sharing this video, I don’t ridicule or dismiss this woman. Having flown millions of miles, I understand firsthand the frustration of delays. I also understand that rolling delays and lack of updates can drive even the sanest of people a little crazy.
Watch the video, but note that the language is strong and foul–
The lady claims she is not drunk and I almost believe her because she puts on such a good act (at least at first) when the police board the flight to remove her.
But perhaps the funniest part of this whole incident is the captain’s announcement toward the end of the video. Noting that the woman refused to comply with police demands to exit the aircraft, he ordered EVERYONE ELSE off the plane! That’s thinking outside the box!
No body slamming, blood, and even a tidy conclusion. Airlines should learn from that captain — while asking all passengers to exit seems a bit overkill, it worked nicely in this case and may be of use in future hostile passenger situations.
