There has been another incident of passengers aboard an airline flight behaving badly as shown on a video posted on social media.
The latest incident was on a Frontier Airlines flight that was headed to Atlanta from Trenton-Mercer Airport. Two passengers were pulled off that flight before it took off.
The incident involved a yelling match, mainly between two women on the flight. According to passengers, the argument was over the potential removal of a man for arguing over a seat with a flight attendant. Before he was removed, that man threw a handful of cash at the female passenger.
“Mind your business. We've been asking you to mind your own business this whole plane ride. What are you so invested in us for?” one of the women yelled at the other.
Eventually, the other woman was also asked to get off the airplane.
The Federal Aviation Administration says that between 2021 and 2022 there were 1,272 incidents involving unruly passengers. The FAA says that 800 of these incidents involved facemask issues.
It's a federal crime to interfere with a crew member during a flight.
FAA regulations state, "No person may assault, threaten, intimidate or interfere with a crewmember in the performance of the crew member's duties aboard an aircraft being operated."
It was only a week ago that a United Airlines flight headed to Israel turned around and landed at Newark Liberty International Airport after a passenger started shouting at a crew member. That pilot returned to Newark three hours into that flight. It's not clear if that man is facing any charges.
News 12 reached out to the Frontier Airlines flight attendants’ union for comment but did not hear back. Frontier Airlines also did not respond to a request for comment.
