Those nicotine cravings are no joke. One woman completely melted down on a flight after being told she can’t jump out of the plane for a cigarette. See the video here.
In a now-viral video shared to TikTok and other social media platforms, a woman demands to exit the plane so she can feed her nicotine habit. As she argues with the flight attendant she appears to push her while swearing loudly.
Several passengers loudly tell her to sit down and shut up reminding her there are kids on the flight while others complain that she is going to delay their flight to Orlando.
One passenger suggests it’s a great time to quit smoking and even suggests she should have driven instead of flown.
The woman says she is tired and she needs a smoke! At one point, another flight attendant joins the fracas and informs her that if the door opens the slide will deploy causing a major delay.
Warning: abusive language.
The flight appears to be a Spirit Airlines flight destined for Orlando (a common denominator in many airline fracases’ it would seem). The video ends without resolution after the pilot announces that all passengers need to return to their seats so the plane can return to the gate.
Presumably, the woman was arrested after returning to the gate.
The travel freakout remains one of the most unusual an interesting things to emerge from the COVID-era of travel as frazzled passengers seem to have a hair-trigger these days. This is just another sad entry in the travel freakout annals.
