Video shows flyer with loose dog yelling at flight at­ten­dant

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - WORLD -

A dis­rup­tive pas­sen­ger was re­moved from an At­lanta-to-Chicago flight after yelling at a flight at­ten­dant while let­ting her dog run through the cabin.

Pas­sen­ger Michael Nash posted video of the al­ter­ca­tion that took place be­fore take­off Wed­nes­day on the Amer­i­can Air­lines flight. Nash said the woman had re­clined her seat while the plane was taxi­ing to the run­way and yelled pro­fan­i­ties after be­ing asked to stop.

The video shows passengers yelling at the woman to sit down as she fol­lows a flight at­ten­dant to the back of the plane with her dog by her side. The plane re­turned to the gate, and an­other video shows a man es­cort­ing her off the flight.

An At­lanta air­port rep­re­sen­ta­tive tells Chicago’s WBBM-TV that the woman wasn’t ar­rested and was re­booked on an­other flight. Amer­i­can Air­lines says the plane ar­rived in Chicago four hours late.
