[POLL] Did This Woman Deserve to Get Kicked Off a Flight to Syracuse?
A woman was allegedly kicked off a plane for complaining about another passenger. Did the airline handle the situation correctly, or was it an overreaction?
Alright, so you're probably wondering what this woman complained about, or how she acted that was so bad to get her kicked off a plane from JFK Airport in New York City to Syracuse (if you haven't heard about the incident yet). Well, according to Syracuse.com, the woman was complaining about being seated near another woman who had a crying baby...
Allegedly, things escalated when the woman began swearing and yelling at the mother and her crying baby. A video has been posted of the incident (which you can see at: Syracuse.com) and shows the woman saying she's not sitting next to a crying baby, and asking the flight attendant for her name and ID number. The woman then threatens the flight attendant's job, before the flight attendant is heard, wanting the woman removed from the plane.
After that, the woman apologizes, and blames it on being really "stressed out." She does seem sincere in her apology, but is it because she got in trouble for the way she acted? Or was she really sorry for her behavior?
Now, we've all lost our cools before, it happens. But there are consequences for our actions, and the consequence for this woman was to get kicked off the flight.
What do you think? Do you think the airline handled this right? If someone is being rude and disrespectful do they deserve to be thrown off? Or do you think the airline overreacted, and she should have been moved or given a warning (although, she may have been given a warning, but it was before the video started)?

And we could all use this situation as a reminder; we need to be careful about the way we act and behave. As hard as it is, we need to keep our cool in situations that stress us out, otherwise there are consequences we'll have to face.
