In a video that would be funny if it weren’t so serious, a man starts sobbing and cursing after being escorted from a plane. At one point he is consoled by a woman who claims she was also kicked off a Delta flight too. This is her story. Or at least part of it.
The original video, below, of the man in tears after apparently having been removed from the flight is making its way around most social media platforms. Mid breakdown a woman wearing a reddish-orange top appears to console the man, urging him to calm down. She states, “Sir, please calm down. I was kicked off of Delta earlier.”

Fellow BoardingArea.com blogger One Mile at a Time has lots of questions about this incident and whether, as is being claimed by many, that the person was actually put on a no-fly list. You can read his piece here, but we think we’ve found at least two separate videos of the woman along with more to the story.
The woman in question, as we noted earlier appears ~16 seconds into the original video. A second video appears to show the same woman – although we are not 100% sure – after being removed from her flight. She is in tears here and being consoled by another woman who’s on the phone.
The video, posted to Reddit, is narrated by a man claiming to be a former police officer and shows a heavy police presence near an airplane gate. Be warned: the video has cursing.
Is it the same woman? Hard to know for sure, but she appears very similar to the first video, and the video appears to be at the same airport, same day, and same airline. It seems as though several passengers were removed from the flight (see second video, below).
The narrator claims it was because they were supporting President Trump which clearly, in and of itself, is not a reason to be removed from a flight.
Was she not wearing a mask? Did she participate in the attack on the Capitol? Some other offense? It turns out, in her own words, it was for being too loud.
A separate video, below, appears to tell more to the story showing the women in red being removed from the flight. As she deplanes, you hear the lady note she doesn’t have money to get home. When a fellow passenger asks her why she was being kicked off, she replies, “Because they said I was being too loud.” She then claims she’s being arrested and shares her name with a fellow passenger.
A fellow passenger, a man in a grey shirt, is also removed, although he doesn’t appear to have any connection to the lady in red. Several passengers clap as two leave the plane.
A 3rd video has emerged of the woman. This video, below, shows a different angle of the same incident and the narrator notes that the woman is the same woman who was seen comforting a toddler who was removed from “a flight” – although it’s not clear which flight. Was it this one? There’s more to this story to stay tuned.

Being noisy or rowdy on a plane does not a terrorist make. Do not loose sight of the fact that the FBI is only looking for hundreds, out of the thousands who attended the rally in DC. Of those hundreds the vast majority might expect charges of vandalizing federal property, unlawful entry, or curfew violations. These are in line with the charges citizens might expect for rioters attacking other federal facilities during BLM related riots in places, like Portland, Oregon.
