A rowdy traveler has been kicked off a Jetstar flight to applause from the entire cabin after a nasty war of words allegedly broke out over a window seat.
The woman, believed to be Australian, was filmed attacking passengers on the Phuket-Sydney flight over the weekend.
According to social media posts, the woman became frustrated “because she wanted to sit by the window”.
In a clip shared online, she was filmed excitedly saying “what’s up habibi” to a camera.
In a separate video, her behavior appeared totally different as she yelled “I’m out, I’m out” while trying to get out of her seat.
“Thank you very much,” she said as she walked up the aisle before removing items from the upper locker.
Fellow travelers burst into applause as she stepped off the plane, only for her to do a quick turnaround just before exiting.
She stormed a passenger and asked menacingly, “What did you call me?”
A different woman and man stood up and encouraged her to leave – chasing her away and waving goodbye.
Speaking to a flight attendant, the woman was heard asking ‘am I supposed to ignore her?’, with the employee responding with a nod.
The woman continued to hover at the exit talking loudly and pointing for a while before finally leaving.
Jetstar has confirmed that a woman was removed from the flight after becoming “disruptive and using abusive and inappropriate language”.
“An unruly passenger was escorted off our flight prior to takeoff in Phuket after becoming disruptive and using abusive and inappropriate language towards other customers and members of our team,” a spokesperson told news. com.au.
“Phuket airport security was called and the passenger was escorted off the flight. We take safety and security very seriously and this type of behavior will not be tolerated on our aircraft.”
