An airline passenger slapped a Delta Air Lines flight attendant during boarding in a disturbing incident that was captured on video.
The confrontation began with a pair of passengers refusing to buckle their seat belts and put on their face masks on a flight that was set to take off from Miami for Atlanta.
Witnesses said the flight attendant had already told the passenger to deplane for refusing to follow crew instructions, when the female passenger suddenly slapped the flight attendant across the face.
The video shows the woman telling the Delta Air Lines flight attendant “B ****, I’m going to bang your a**” after punching her in the face on board a flight to Miami, Florida, heading for Atlanta
Footage shows the woman with her face mask pulled back around her neck as she throws a punch at the masked Delta Air Lines crew member in the aisle
The woman then said to the flight attendant: “B ****, I’m going to hit your a** You shouldn’t have touched me, you pushed me” However, the video shows the woman getting into the face of the crew before the punch
Shocked witnesses start shouting as passengers and crew rush to separate the pair, with passengers claiming the traveler refused to wear his mask properly and would not follow any of the in-flight rules
In the video, the woman is not wearing her face mask properly, she has a pillow around her neck and appears to be holding a wad of money in her hand
Reality TV star Lauryn England, who videotaped the assault, wrote on Instagram: “Ughhhh, it’s literally happening right in front of my face
“All I wanna do is get home at this point! How crazy are you because your boyfriend delayed the ALL & flight because he doesn’t want to put on his seat belt?
“And they’ve been asking you to get off the flight for an hour So had the nerve to say they fly first class
Ms. England later told 7News: “It was very disgusting to see because it didn’t have to be this way
“They didn’t want to abide by the rules, so they were supposed to leave the flight
“It was just a matter of putting on your seat belt, lifting your seat or putting on your mask”
BBC journalist Suzanne Kianpour, who was on board the flight after stopping in Miami to cover the US presidential election, also posted a video of the assault
She tweeted: “Here’s what happened on our @delta flight from #Miami to #Atlanta after a passenger refused to wear a mask as per policy, then got into an argument with a flight attendant
“It started with a mask, turned into a passenger refusing to follow the rules at all and the situation got worse”
In this clip, a witness is heard saying “She’s in her face, oh lord, oh lord” as the woman punched the flight attendant
People are fucking losing their minds. She smacked the flight attendant because her dumb boyfriend didn’t want to wear a seatbelt 🤦♂️ pic.twitter.com/6IiSrvB0Cq

While these thugs can attack the flight atendants for more than half an hour before they rceive proper threatment, Trump’s supporters are getting hard times for far less.
Last week a passenger with a ‘Black Voices For Trump‘ cap being asked to get off the aircraft for allegedly having his required COVID-19 face mask temporarily down.
Never mind that the man in the video was eating peanuts at the time his mask was down, or the fact that he was wearing a ‘Black Voices for Trump’ cap and a Trump face mask. The latter half of the information above appears to be the suspected reason for asking the man to leave the flight.
The person filming the incident before the flight had taken off asked the flight attendant repeatedly what the airline regulations were for eating on a flight. She specifically asked if there was a rule against pulling the mask down to eat. The flight attendant didn’t appear to want to answer the passengers’ questions in the video.
Some people in the video speculated it wasn’t about the food but about the passengers’ open support for President Trump that led to the incident.
