On Sunday, an account on TikTok (@texaskansasnnn) uploaded a video of a woman who seemed frantic and scared on a plane departing from Dallas to Orlando. She captioned it, "AA what y'all doing about this?" and added the hashtag, "#drunkonaplane." The video has since been removed, and the original poster has set their profile to private, but the clip is still circulating on social media platforms.
The passenger, who remains unnamed, is seen walking down the aisle as the plane prepares to take off. "I'm telling you, I'm getting the f*ck off, and there's a reason why I'm getting the f*ck off," she yells as she stares toward the back of the plane. "And everyone can either believe it or they can not believe it. I don't give two f*cks."
"But I am telling you right now, that motherf*cker back there is not real," she claims, pointing at someone. People turn their heads to see who she's talking about. Then, like a scene straight out of Final Destination, she continues with this chilling warning: "And you can sit on this plane, and you can f*cking die with them or not. I'm not going to." According to the original poster, this ordeal caused the flight to be delayed by three hours. The uploader added that the upset woman "somehow didn't get arrested and got back through security after the whole plane had to deplane."
To some, the woman seemed drunk. To others, she appeared sane and had genuine concerns. @StarLasswell1 writes, "Anyone know if the plane landed at its destination without (further) incident? She scared me enough with that to make me really wonder."
@worldsmayor adds, "Call me crazy but I believe her."
A different video uploaded by another person shows the woman a few minutes before the viral moment. She's seen arguing with a flight attendant and demanding they stop the plane. "I need to get the f*ck off this plane," she says. As the airline employee mentions her belongings, the woman says, "I don't even give a f*ck about my sh*t."
The woman is now a hot topic on TikTok, and many are discussing what she may have seen on that plane, with wild "nonhuman" speculations ranging from shapeshifting reptilians to aliens. Unfortunately, the woman has yet to come forward and share her side of the story – but other passengers have.
Eye Witness Accounts
The saga gets weirder. Apparently, stand-up comedian and actor Carrot Top was actually on that same flight. He uploaded a video of himself at the DFW airport and said the woman freaked out after losing one of her earbuds, but he didn’t give his audience too many details. “I hope she’s happy!!! We’re all stuck in Dallas now because of her,” he wrote on Instagram days ago.
"I give my hats off to everyone in American Airlines today for how they handled the situation. That f*cking nut job just lost her mind in front of the whole plane, and five hours later, we're here in Orlando," Carrot Top says.
@m.leern, a passenger who claims she was on the flight, revealed on TikTok what happened on that fateful day. She says others noticed the woman drinking before boarding the aircraft. When the plane began pulling out of the runway, the woman lost her AirPods and started yelling at a guy nearby. "She was sitting in her seat, and I guess she had a pair of Airpods," says @m.leern. "They said she had them in her hand. And then, within seconds, we don't know if she pocketed them or where she put them, she misplaced them somehow. And she started yelling at the guy next to her, who, of course, is African American, saying that he stole her AirPods."
The plane turned around after the woman's incessant demands. They escorted her off the plane, and 45 minutes later, everyone else followed. She adds that the woman was taken away, and the aircraft was investigated to "make sure that there's nothing wrong with the plane." The three attendants who had dealt with the woman also had to get off and were later replaced. @m.leern finally gets to the person who "did not exist," stating that she was talking about a flight attendant who was dealing with her complaints.
While @m.leern's account certainly sounds the most logical, there are still many people who remain unconvinced. "I need to hear from that lady!! Where is she ??" wrote a woman named Edna in the comment section. "She saw something, I believe her !!"
Another TikTok user added, "In the video of her saying she didn't even want her stuff, she seemed pretty terrified, so I don't think she cared much about her AirPods..."
However, an American Airlines representative corroborates @m.leern's story. According to the rep, the woman was "removed from the flight" after it returned to the gate, where law enforcement officials were waiting. "American Airlines flight 1009, with service from Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) to Orlando (MCO), returned to the gate due to a disruptive customer. The flight was met at the gate by local law enforcement, and the customer was removed from the flight. Safety and security are our top priorities, and we thank our customers for their understanding and our team members for their professionalism in managing a difficult situation," they said. Law enforcement also informed Complex that the plane lady "left the airport without incident."
Despite these answers, many people are still wondering who the woman is and what happened to her. Why hasn't she come forward yet? @m.leern offers a sound explanation for this: "I assume the reason we probably have not heard from the woman on the plane yet is either because she's embarrassed or because she may still be in jail," she says. "Anyways, I hope you guys are all safe on your next flights, and be careful out there."
