Holiday travel is an absolute disaster right now with flights delayed and canceled across the entire country and some people aren’t taking it well including this woman who absolutely loses her mind while screaming at airline employees.
While we don’t have many details, it appears a female traveler was caught up in the flight delay chaos that has been sweeping across the country thanks to the polar vortex snowstorms. A video was shared on various social media platforms that shows a woman in the Austin International Airport screaming at airline staff about what seems to be her checked luggage.
We can surmise that her original flight may have been delayed which would (we gather) cause her to miss her connecting flight. In what is a reasonable request, we think the woman was attempting to get her checked luggage back so she could make other plans – again details are sparse here (we welcome any witnesses to reach out directly to us with more information).
Another video of the event was also submitted to Reddit from a different angle:
If our theory about checking luggage is correct you can chalk this up to the very long list of reasons (like 1.3 trillion at this point) to never check a bag. This author’s own son was caught up in the flight chaos yesterday as well and he made the (very) rookie mistake of checking his bag. After a 3+ hour delay on the tarmac he made his final destination while his bag decided to visit Denver instead. Should have listened to dad…
Merry Christmas Eve, y’all. Just relax out there. It sucks to be traveling today…don’t freakout. It won’t help. And if you, make sure you ask someone to record it at least.
