American airlines flight fight : “I almost missed my @AmericanAir connecting flight in Phoenix because two girls got into a fist fight over who got off the plane first. I’m afraid I can’t, “Kate sent out a tweet.
Passengers on American Airlines fight over who gets to deplane first; a witness posts video to Twitter.
Earlier this week, two ladies allegedly got into a fist brawl while boarding an American Airlines flight.
User @katebytheocean0 shared a video of the incident, which occurred on American Airlines flight 2275, on Twitter on Sunday.
Several people can be seen standing in the aisle in the video, probably preparing to deplane.
The video doesn’t show the women fighting, but it does show shouting and screaming from both the brawlers and the disgruntled passengers.
Over the intercom, a crew member can be heard saying, “Call for law enforcement, call for law enforcement,” over and over.
PASSENGERS IN UNDERSTANDABLE JETBLUE THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS IN FAA FINES FOR MASK DISPUTES: ‘ZERO TOLERANCE’
In a statement to Fox News, an American Airlines official verified the event.
“While waiting to deplane from aircraft 2275 from Los Angeles (LAX) to Phoenix (PHX), American received a complaint of an alleged incident between two customers,” the representative stated.
According to the airline, no passengers or staff members were injured as a result of the event.
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) decided last week to expand its policy of zero tolerance for rowdy airline customers.
According to Fox News, the regulation was meant to expire on March 30, but it will now remain in effect until the CDC and TSA decide to rescind their mask mandates.
In January, the zero-tolerance policy was implemented in response to a “disturbing spike” in disruptive behaviour.
FAA Chief Steve Dickson said cases of disruptive behaviour are “still much too high” when he announced the policy’s renewal last week.
