After Hitting A Mother With Stroller, American Airlines Flight Attendant Challenged Passenger To Fight
After United Airlines got utterly destroyed by everyone for brutally removing a passenger from an overbooked flight, you’d think all of the airlines would be chill. But an American Airlines flight attendant saw the guy getting dragged off the flight and was like, “Hold my overpriced $8 airline beer and watch this.”
According to a witness, an American Airlines flight attendant allegedly “violently took a stroller from a lady with her baby on my flight, hitting her and just missing the baby.” A male passenger then told the airline steward, “You do that to me and I’ll knock you flat.” Then the airline steward challenged the passenger to a fight (55-second mark). “Hit me, come on,” the flight attendant told the passenger as his colleagues held him back.
While all of this is happening, the mother is crying uncontrollably.
Flight AA591 was going from San Francisco to Dallas-Fort Worth and departed at 2:18 p.m. on Friday, about an hour after its scheduled 1 p.m. departure time.
Americans Airlines said it was investigating the incident in a statement.
“What we see on this video does not reflect our values or how we care for our customers. We are deeply sorry for the pain we have caused this passenger and her family and to any other customers affected by the incident,” the statement read.
American Airlines said they are “taking special care of her and her family and upgrading them to first class for the remainder of their international trip.”
The flight attendant has since been suspended.
