She might be heard screaming, “You! You! You!” as passengers exited American Airways Flight 1774 previous her — flight attendants calmly nodded their goodbyes, according to the footage posted by TikTok user @lol.ariee.
The 2-hour July 6 flight from Dallas-Fort Value to Charlotte, NC, had been delayed for a minimum of three hours earlier than it lastly departed at midnight, however about an hour into the journey, chaos broke out, @lol.ariee stated in subsequent movies describing the hectic scene.

“It was simply sort of like chaos and nobody is aware of what’s occurring,” she continued.

“Then we’re regularly beginning to hear increasingly screaming, and we’re like, ‘Wait a minute,’” she famous.

And he or she was saying, ‘I must get off this aircraft,’ and she or he went as much as the exits and began banging on the doorways, saying, ‘It’s essential let me off this aircraft!’”
“I suppose it took all 5 flight attendants to subdue her and like actually take her down so,” she stated, of the incident, which was first reported by TMZ. “They beautiful a lot took her down, put her within the seat and duct taped her.”
American Airways confirmed the incident, telling The Put up the lady assaulted and bit a flight attendant after she “tried to open the ahead boarding door” and was restrained “for the protection and safety of different prospects and our crew.”
