Smoking passenger creates ruckus on Southwest flight

Published on : Tuesday, December 12, 2017

Southwest flightA female passenger was smoking in the bathroom of the plane somewhere between Portland and Sacramento on Saturday, according to Southwest Airlines., and had gone so far as to tamper with the smoke detector.

 
So a flight attendant barged in on the woman to got her out of the bathroom, but it did little else to improve the situation on Flight 2943.

 
The woman ripped an oxygen mask out of the ceiling as the crew forced her back to her seat, the station reported. And indeed, a mask appears to be dangling in the plane aisle as seen in video of the ensuing tirade.

 
“I have a destination for myself!” the woman yelled as a passenger behind her looked up from his tablet and stares. She is wearing a hat, sunglasses and overcoat, and collecting her belongings as if to disembark the midair flight.

 
“I swear, if you don’t . . . land,” the woman says, as a flight attendant blocks her from the aisle, “I will f—ing kill everybody on this f—ing plane!”

 
“You will not,” the attendant says. “You will not.”

 
“I will!”

 
A scuffle in the aisle ends the video. The man who recorded it said that the woman had to be restrained by passengers and crew for the next half-hour.

 
Meanwhile, the airline said, pilots called in an emergency and landed in Sacramento, somehow more or less on schedule.

 
Sheriff’s deputies arrested Valerie Curbelo, 24, at the airport. They arrested Valerie on a felony charge of making a death threat and jailed her on $75,000 bail.
