A passenger on American Airlines was removed from the flight following an argument over the serving of pre-flight drinks.
A first-class American Airlines passenger, who requested a pre-flight cocktail, was handcuffed following an altercation with the staff and security personnel. The disgruntled passenger was forcibly removed from his flight after being asked repeatedly by the crew to exit.
In a viral video, the man is seen arguing with airport personnel. They attempted to coax the passenger to leave, informing him that the pilot requested his removal “multiple times,” added the report. While the man asked them to “stop,” the officers struggled to get him into handcuffs in the aisle and ultimately resorted to dragging him out of his seat by force.
