In-flight fiasco as woman’s sexual advances rejected

February 12, 2014 Aviation, Headline News 2 Comments Email Email


A drunken woman who allegedly threatened to kill a male passenger who rejected her in-flight sexual advances appears to have plunged the decorum of airline travel to a new low.

The woman, who raved repeatedly that she would “f***ing kill” the man who had turned her down, ended up being forcibly restrained during a US domestic flight from Baltimore-Washington International Airport to Salt Lake City in Utah.

Finally, the woman was handcuffed and marched off the diverted Delta Airlines flight 1189. Her flirting had become too aggressive, exploding into a violent rage when her alleged attempts to pick up a male passenger failed.

The flight was diverted to Minneapolis-Saint Paul Airport after the weird on-board exchange got out of hand, the New York Daily News reported. Channel reported the woman was already drunk when she boarded the plane and was groping other passengers.

The woman continued cursing and ranting even as the pilot told passengers over the public address system that the plane would have to divert to offload the furious woman.

The woman was “very intoxicated” and “grabbing at passengers” on the plane, Minneapolis-Saint Paul Airport spokesman Patrick Hogan told the Salt Lake City Tribune.

After the woman was removed, the B737 aircraft, carrying 132 passengers, continued its flight. Passengers arrived at their destination two hours late and some missed their connections.

But, as another passenger on the flight, Luz Dinorah Padró, remarked: “For us, it is over today. For her, it is going to last a long time.”

It’s worth remembering that if you behave in an unseemly manner while airborne (or on the ground, for that matter), someone may film you and place the clip on YouTube. That’s what Luz Dinorah Padró did. Her video shows part of the incident as the woman is escorted off, behaving quite politely by that stage. It can be viewed by clicking here.

    Having watched the video, I suppose it’s possible she is female.
