Airline Makes Woman Stop Smoking During Flight, She Threatens To Kill Everyone
I don't know when the last time this lady was on a plane, but nobody has smoked on one in decades.
Clearly, she didn't know that and threatened to go on a murderous rampage when the flight attendants told her to stop smoking.
A passenger was smoking in the bathroom somewhere between Portland and Sacramento on Saturday, according to the airline, and had gone so far as to tamper with the smoke detector.
So a flight attendant barged in on the woman, according to KOIN 6. This at least got her out of the bathroom, but did little else to improve the situation on Flight 2943.
The woman ripped an oxygen mask out of the ceiling as crew forced her back to her seat, the station reported. And indeed, a mask appears to dangle in the plane aisle as seen in video of the ensuing tirade.
"I have a destination for myself!" the woman yells as a passenger behind her looks up from his tablet and stares. She is wearing a hat, sunglasses and overcoat, and collecting her belongings as if to disembark the mid-air flight.
"I swear, if you don't . . . land," the woman says, as a flight attendant blocks her from the aisle, "I will kill everybody on this f-ing plane!"
"You will not," the attendant says. "You will not."
A scuffle in the aisle ends the video. The man who took it told CBS 13 that the woman had to be restrained by passengers and crew for the next half hour.Sheriff's deputies were waiting at the airport. They arrested Valerie Curbelo, 24, on a felony charge of making a death threat and jailed her on $75,000 bail. -(The Washington Post)
