Frontier Airlines Flight Descends Into Chaos: Passenger Meltdown Captured On Video
A passenger's emotional meltdown aboard a Frontier Airlines flight unfolded, prompting another to intervene with prayers and gospel songs.
Aboard Frontier Airlines flight 1161 on Nov. 16, a passenger’s emotional meltdown unfolded midair, prompting a fellow traveler to intervene with prayers and gospel songs. The chaotic scene, captured in a video uploaded to Reddit, showed a woman sobbing, swearing, and engaging in physical altercations with airline employees, as reported by Daily Mail.
The video starts with the distressed passenger being pulled down the aisle, emitting bloodcurdling screams. A fellow passenger, identified by a gray beanie, attempts to calm her and miraculously succeeds. Meanwhile, tensions escalate with confrontations between passengers and staff and even a call for divine intervention.
A woman in sunglasses exclaims, “Straight Texas style! Imma beat yo a**!”
The woman who had the meltdown begins to scream, “Stop blocking me! I’ve been f***ing kidnapped,” before swinging a punch at one of the employees.
The video then shows a plea over the flight’s speaker system for passengers to remain seated. The drama escalates with the distressed woman climbing over seats and demanding attention.
Another passenger accuses her of being possessed, asserting that only through Jesus Christ can she find help, saying, “And I’m sorry to sound like that, but I’ll tell you right now, Jesus Christ is the way to truth in the life and there’s nobody that’s gonna come to the God, the Father, without Jesus Christ.”
As the distressed passenger reaches the front of the plane, she breaks into singing gospel songs while flight attendants attempt to subdue her.
Despite the chaotic situation, police officers allowed the woman to return to her seat. The flight, which was supposed to travel from Houston to Denver, was ultimately diverted to Dallas.
A woman whose son was on the flight told the Daily Mail, “They had to stop in Dallas to let the crazy lady off, the preacher woman off, and the guy in the white baseball hat off.”
She added that “the crazy lady was punching and assaulting the flight attendant who was blocking her more than once.”
Frontier Airlines has yet to provide an official statement.
The scene bore a resemblance to a previous viral meltdown by a passenger on an American Airlines flight in July, raising concerns about in-flight disturbances and passenger safety.
