Delta Airlines passenger started to ‘scream’ about a baby

A passenger was removed from a Delta Airlines flight earlier this month for a loudly complaining about having to sit next to an 8-month-old baby.

An annoyed passenger was kicked off a Delta Air Lines flight earlier this month after the “shouting” about sitting next to an 8-month-old, according to the mother of the baby.

Marissa Rundell, a mother from Hammondsport, N. Y., was traveling with her son Mason on a flight scheduled to depart from JFK International Airport to Syracuse on Feb. 6 when a woman preparing to take her seat on the other side of the aisle began to complain, Rundell told the Daily Mail.

“She came to the back and put her bags down. She said: ‘this is f-ing ridiculous. The bulls— to sit on the back of the plane,'” said Rundell.

Rundell claims she asked the woman to watch her language — twice — and was told to “shut the f— up, and push it.”

Soon after, the woman began to complain about the fact that sitting next to a “crying baby” on the plane, even though Mason was not crying at the time, says Rundell.

“Can I sit somewhere else?” the woman can be heard saying in footage Rundell shared on Facebook. “I’m not sitting near a crying baby.”

Soon after, an attendant on the flight — which was operated by Endeavor Air, a wholly owned subsidiary of Delta tells the woman that they could take the next flight if they want to.

“No, I can’t,” the woman shoots back. She asks the stewardess, is that the name of the escort — Tabitha — along with her employee ID.

Rundell filmed the woman told the flight attendant that they don’t have a job tomorrow.”

“Thank you, Tabitha,” the woman says. “You can’t have a job tomorrow.”

At this, Tabitha immediately tells another member of the crew that she “want[s] this lady from the flight,” asks the woman starts apologizing.

“No. You just shouted a woman and her baby,” Tabitha responds. She then goes in the direction of a responding member of the crew and movement in the direction of the woman. “She was screaming at the baby,” says Tabitha.

“I’m not shouting. I will be quiet now. Please. OK? I’m sorry. I was very stressed out,” the woman can be seen arguing in the vicinity of the end of Rundell video.

Rundell confirmed to the Daily Mail that the woman continued to argue with a gate agent who came to remove her from the flight, but eventually left the plane after coming back to her seat and retrieving her possessions.

The woman was eventually removed from the aircraft on the flight attendant’s request. “You shouted a woman and her baby,” the flight attendant told her.

“I thought it was funny how she was acting like a child throwing a tantrum,” said the 19-year-old mother.

In response to the incident, a spokesman with Delta Air Lines has declared that the woman’s behaviour is not in accordance with the standards which the society requests of the passengers or the crew.

“We ask that customers embrace courtesy and respect for each other, fly with Delta,” a Delta spokesman tells Fox News via e-mail. “This customer behavior in the direction of a fellow customer on a flight from New York to Syracuse was not in accordance with these standards. We appreciate our Endeavor Air flight attendant’s devotion to Delta’s core values and our apologies to the other customers on board flight 4017 who suffer from the interference.”
