Pre-Flight Entertainment: Woman Goes Berserk After Being Asked to Place Dog in Carrier Aboard United Flight (Viral Video)
Lets admit it, when flying our travel often experience depends on the courtesy (or lack thereof) of the passengers sitting directly next to us.
We have all read the horror stories of individuals that believe the arm belongs solely to them or those that pack meals featuring highly potent odors in their carry on as if they will be celebrating Thanksgiving during a 2 hour flight, but what about the ill behaved four-legged passengers? That is exactly what this United Airlines customer was able to capture.
During a flight from Salt Lake City to Chicago, an unidentified woman and her purse sized companion began to terrorize the flight crew well before the aircraft was able to take off. According to Yahoo, after the flight crew ask the woman to secure the canine who was allegedly snarling and snapping at the staff, she became enraged causing quite the delay.
The incident was captured on camera by another passenger and posted on Youtube by user MrAdownie. The video begins with text explaining that the womans dog had been snapping at the crew, and as a result, she was asked to put the pet back in its carrier.
She refused, called the flight attendant a name, and the plane, which was from Salt Lake City to Chicago, returned to the gate instead of taking off. Thats when things escalated.
Police were waiting at the gate when the airplane arrived, and when an officer boarded the plane, the dog owner got defensive.
