Former New York Senator Al D'Amato was kicked off a Monday night JetBlue flight after complaining about the pre-take off delay at Fort Lauderdale airport, according to witnesses. D'Amato reportedly became upset, as many other passengers were, after the flight that was initially supposed to depart just after 1:30 p.m. was delayed six separate times until 6:30 and when passengers actually boarded there was an additional delay, according to a passenger on the flight.

This is video of a lady being physically removed from Spirit Airlines flight #470 from Las Vegas to Dallas (July 6, 2011). The first part of the video is flight attendants repeatedly asking her to get off the plane. The second part is Vegas police removing her. Backstory ========== Short version: This crazy lady refused to get off the plane so Las Vegas police made her get off. Longer version: Something was obviously wrong with this passenger from the second she got on the plane. I first saw her at the ticket counter endlessly arguing with the desk clerk about baggage fees. Then once on the plane, she was stumbling all around and needed help walking to (finding?) her seat. She then started yelling that it was the "Jesus Plane" among several other barely-coherent statements. She exhibited generally wacky behavior and everyone groaned at the possibility of having to fly with her.. When flight attendants began asking her to come talk to them off the plane she refused, citing "discrimination." After 10-15 minutes of different flight attendants pleading with her to exit the plane (and her flat-out ignoring them and refusing to move), Las Vegas PD boarded and once again asked her to leave voluntarily. When she refused, they forcibly removed her. You can tell by the crowd's reactions whose side we were on, as nobody wanted to spend a 2.5 hour flight with a loud, rambling, incoherent lady. Kudos to Spirit's flight attendants and Las Vegas PD whose efficient actions still made us take off right on time. This video appeared on the November 8, 2011 episode of Jay Leno, as well as 20/20, ABC News, NBC Nightly News/Today Show, and countless other international TV and internet broadcasts.

(Reuploaded from ASDNEWS3) Shocked passengers filmed a woman’s furious reaction as she dashes to open a plane door at the gate, after learning she has missed her flight. Two separate videos show the passenger forcing her way through security and trying to open the Air Asia plane door. The incident was captured at Kuala Lumpur International Airport, and shows the female even attempting to kick security guards after being turned away from AirAsia flight AK380 bound for Jakarta. The airline have told MailOnline Travel that the passenger was Chinese, and was handed over to the police for further questioning. The aircraft door was closed and was waiting air traffic clearance for push back. The first video shows two security officers try and pull the woman away from the door, as she shouts, ‘why are you going for me, tell me, why.’ ‘It’s my flight, you have no right, okay,’ she continues. The passenger is then filmed aiming a kick at one of the officers, before she says that they ‘have to open’ the door for her. The second video then shows how it took four men and one woman to drag the irate passenger away from the plane entrance, and out of the restricted area. The security door is then closed, but the woman is still furious that she was denied boarding the plane. ‘Why are you going for me, why, why,’ she rages. ‘I have a ticket.’ One of the female security officers responds: ‘Yes you have a ticket, but you are scheduled to be at the gate.’ 'It is supposed to wait for me,’ adds the passenger. The person who posted the videos, Xiaohong Xiaohong, tagged them by writing: ‘Comments and share so that unreasonable passengers should be banned from flying with a restriction order.’ A spokesperson for AirAsia said: ‘An AirAsia passenger was late for her flight and turned aggressive towards airline staff, AVSEC police, and airport authority’s staff when denied boarding. ‘A police report has been lodged on the same day with regard to the incident.’

D’Amato Removed From Plane After Urging Walkout Over Delays. ‘Walk out with me,’ says ex-N.Y. senator ejected from JetBlue flight. Former New York Sen. Al D’Amato is kicked off a Fort Lauderdale JetBlue flight bound for New York Monday night. A former New York Senator is making headlines for his outburst on a New York-bound JetBlue flight that led to him being ejected from a plane. But of course, almost no plane tirade is complete without the Florida angle. Ex-New York Sen. Al D’Amato was on JetBlue flight 1002 from Fort Lauderdale Monday night, following a seven-hour delay. Flights from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport have been facing numerous delays after a shooter killed five people and injured six at a baggage claim terminal Friday. But Monday’s JetBlue flight still couldn’t leave until 10 passengers in the front were moved to the back of the plane to redistribute weight. When several passengers refused to move, D’Amato got up and confronted them, as well as crew and the captain, who he said needed “to grow some balls” and control the situation, according to passenger Layla Delarmelina. Mr. D’Amato, 79, who represented New York as a Republican from 1981 to 1999, was removed from a JetBlue flight in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., after causing a conflict, according to the airline. The JetBlue flight, which had been scheduled to depart around 1:40 p.m. Monday, did not take off until about 8 p.m., after delays. During the delay, Mr. D’Amato stood in the aisle and urged other passengers to walk out with him, according to video of the episode. “We can still speak in this country,” Mr. D’Amato said in the video. “I am making an appeal to all you people. Stand up for what’s right and walk out with me.” At least one unidentified passenger stood to join him. “I’m going,” he said. It is not exactly clear what prompted Mr. D’Amato’s response. The crew was trying to move passengers to address a weight imbalance, an airline spokesman said. A passenger, Jeffrey A. Wurst, said that the plane’s captain explained that about 10 people needed to move to the back of the plane from the front to balance how the cargo had been loaded. “I saw Al D’Amato go to the back, to one of the last rows,” Mr. Wurst said. “People spotted him and asked to take pictures. The captain then asked for more people to move. D’Amato gets up and starts” shouting, he said. Eventually, the police were called. An officer from the Broward County Sheriff’s Office can be seen walking toward Mr. D’Amato in the video. Mr. D’Amato seems to refer to the issue with the seats, speaking during an announcement that the plane would take off once everyone was seated. “I’m getting thrown out because I stood up and said to the captain, ‘Why don’t you do what you’re supposed to do?’” Mr. D’Amato says in the video. “If you’re supposed to move two or three people, move them. And so he got annoyed at that, and I’m getting thrown out.” As he walks by the open cockpit door, Mr. D’Amato can be seen telling the captain that he is a “poor excuse” for a leader. He turns to a flight attendant and appears to curse. JetBlue said that decisions to remove passengers from flights were not made lightly. “If a customer is causing a conflict on the aircraft, it is standard procedure to ask the customer to deplane, especially if the crew feels the situation runs a risk of escalation in flight,” the company said in a statement. Gary Lewi, a spokesman for Mr. D’Amato, said that the former senator was in Florida to visit an ailing friend. Mr. Lewi cited Mr. D’Amato’s frustration over the long delay and “sleep deprivation” as factors in the incident. “Anyone who knows Senator D’Amato knows he speaks his mind,” Mr. Lewi said in a statement. “JetBlue has apologized to the senator for overreacting, and the senator apologized for speaking his mind at a time when he clearly had left his patience at the gate.” The sheriff’s office said it had referred the matter to JetBlue. The airline said no further action would be taken. The intensity of emotions raised by travel and the ubiquity of social media have combined to produce a perpetual stream of caustic episodes that spin into viral news after being captured on cellphone cameras. ▌ Visit official website : http://www.videoforest.net ▌ Subscribe on Youtube : https://goo.gl/5V12KT ▌ Follow Us on Twitter : https://goo.gl/C21YRM ▌ Follow us on Pinterest : https://goo.gl/wSti4m ▌ Follow Us on Google+ : https://goo.gl/tmdRkY ▌ Subscribe us for Email : http://goo.gl/84D6JY ▌ Like Us on Facebook : https://goo.gl/jYDYwC -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "NASCAR star Dale Earnhardt Jr. retiring at end of 2017 NASCAR season" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GJAnNI-hCjA -~-~~-~~~-~~-~-

Video and story by Scott Kotesky Just had the craziest experience ever on an airplane: I'm boarding my flight from Baltimore to Seattle and approach my seat. I had an upgraded seat that I paid a little extra for because of the long 6 hour flight. As I approach my row I smile and motion to the husband and wife sitting in the aisle and middle seat that Imy seat was next to the window. I put my backpack in the overhead and the wife with a very stern voice says to me: "Did you come here to cheer or to protest?" "I came here to celebrate democracy ma'am" ... I knew this was going to be a long flight at this point. She then proceeded with: (somewhat paraphrased as my memory allows) Her: "You put a crazed man in charge of the nuclear codes! You should be ashamed!" Me: 'Well we're all entitled to our opinions here ma'am." Her: "And I'm entitled to get drunk and puke in your lap! I'm going to throw up right in your lap! You make me sick! Don't talk to me! Don't look at me! Don't you dare even put your arm on that rest. You disgust me! You should be ashamed of yourself! You put a maniac's finger on the button" (assuming she's means nukes). You are a bigot. You should get off this plane!" Me: "ma'am, by definition, bigotry is disparaging someone prior to knowing them simply by their beliefs and opinions. Thank you for being the very thing you preach against." She the proceeded with other various rantings such as my lack of critical thinking and other insults. Finally a flight attendant came over as you will see in the video followed by a supervisor informing that she would have to deboard the plane per captains orders. After much fuss, airport police came and removed her from the plane. The lady across from me filmed that and was gracious to sent it to me. Many others around me defended me insisting the lady had caused all the commotion and was verbally assaulting not just me but others wearing various Trump apparel boarding the plane. As the lady was removed I saw that I was surrounded by blacks, Latinos, Asians, and whites, all who had chimed in asking her to be removed and who had defended me. I was touched and moved knowing later that not all these people were trump supporters. The black man who took the seat next to me was a registered Democrat and he and I had a very good discussion about the beauty of free speech and coming together when people insult and commit acts of violence just for having differing views. It truly was a great demonstration of AMERICA and its people coming together and standing up for one another.
