Former New York Senator Al D'Amato was kicked off a Monday night JetBlue flight after complaining about the pre-take off delay at Fort Lauderdale airport, according to witnesses. D'Amato reportedly became upset, as many other passengers were, after the flight that was initially supposed to depart just after 1:30 p.m. was delayed six separate times until 6:30 and when passengers actually boarded there was an additional delay, according to a passenger on the flight.

FIRST CLASS BITCH. We were in Denver, taxiing to the runway bound for Seattle when this drunk woman BELLOWED her dismay that we had not yet taken off and began a drunken rant, which I captured part of for your slack-jawed viewing enjoyment. We taxiied back to the gate, let the Denver airport police and paramedics take charge of her, took on some more fuel and landed in Seattle 49 minutes late thanks to her ranting. The lady seated beside her told me after we took off that she had started babbling about being in the CIA. While we were refueling, the captain came in to the first class cabin and chatted with us, mentioning that in 25 years he had never heard ANYONE, man or woman, screech, piss, moan, babble, foam, rant, rave or misbehave that way. I did some calculations and figured that it could have cost upward of $10,000 for that little 40 minute round trip to the gate before takeoff, taking into consideration fuel costs, police time, paremedic time, flight attendant time to write reports and cost to rebook passengers missing their connections. In my 15 years of business travel this is a first and hopefully a last, too.

D’Amato Removed From Plane After Urging Walkout Over Delays. ‘Walk out with me,’ says ex-N.Y. senator ejected from JetBlue flight. Former New York Sen. Al D’Amato is kicked off a Fort Lauderdale JetBlue flight bound for New York Monday night. A former New York Senator is making headlines for his outburst on a New York-bound JetBlue flight that led to him being ejected from a plane. But of course, almost no plane tirade is complete without the Florida angle. Ex-New York Sen. Al D’Amato was on JetBlue flight 1002 from Fort Lauderdale Monday night, following a seven-hour delay. Flights from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport have been facing numerous delays after a shooter killed five people and injured six at a baggage claim terminal Friday. But Monday’s JetBlue flight still couldn’t leave until 10 passengers in the front were moved to the back of the plane to redistribute weight. When several passengers refused to move, D’Amato got up and confronted them, as well as crew and the captain, who he said needed “to grow some balls” and control the situation, according to passenger Layla Delarmelina. Mr. D’Amato, 79, who represented New York as a Republican from 1981 to 1999, was removed from a JetBlue flight in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., after causing a conflict, according to the airline. The JetBlue flight, which had been scheduled to depart around 1:40 p.m. Monday, did not take off until about 8 p.m., after delays. During the delay, Mr. D’Amato stood in the aisle and urged other passengers to walk out with him, according to video of the episode. “We can still speak in this country,” Mr. D’Amato said in the video. “I am making an appeal to all you people. Stand up for what’s right and walk out with me.” At least one unidentified passenger stood to join him. “I’m going,” he said. It is not exactly clear what prompted Mr. D’Amato’s response. The crew was trying to move passengers to address a weight imbalance, an airline spokesman said. A passenger, Jeffrey A. Wurst, said that the plane’s captain explained that about 10 people needed to move to the back of the plane from the front to balance how the cargo had been loaded. “I saw Al D’Amato go to the back, to one of the last rows,” Mr. Wurst said. “People spotted him and asked to take pictures. The captain then asked for more people to move. D’Amato gets up and starts” shouting, he said. Eventually, the police were called. An officer from the Broward County Sheriff’s Office can be seen walking toward Mr. D’Amato in the video. Mr. D’Amato seems to refer to the issue with the seats, speaking during an announcement that the plane would take off once everyone was seated. “I’m getting thrown out because I stood up and said to the captain, ‘Why don’t you do what you’re supposed to do?’” Mr. D’Amato says in the video. “If you’re supposed to move two or three people, move them. And so he got annoyed at that, and I’m getting thrown out.” As he walks by the open cockpit door, Mr. D’Amato can be seen telling the captain that he is a “poor excuse” for a leader. He turns to a flight attendant and appears to curse. JetBlue said that decisions to remove passengers from flights were not made lightly. “If a customer is causing a conflict on the aircraft, it is standard procedure to ask the customer to deplane, especially if the crew feels the situation runs a risk of escalation in flight,” the company said in a statement. Gary Lewi, a spokesman for Mr. D’Amato, said that the former senator was in Florida to visit an ailing friend. Mr. Lewi cited Mr. D’Amato’s frustration over the long delay and “sleep deprivation” as factors in the incident. “Anyone who knows Senator D’Amato knows he speaks his mind,” Mr. Lewi said in a statement. “JetBlue has apologized to the senator for overreacting, and the senator apologized for speaking his mind at a time when he clearly had left his patience at the gate.” The sheriff’s office said it had referred the matter to JetBlue. The airline said no further action would be taken. The intensity of emotions raised by travel and the ubiquity of social media have combined to produce a perpetual stream of caustic episodes that spin into viral news after being captured on cellphone cameras. ▌ Visit official website : http://www.videoforest.net ▌ Subscribe on Youtube : https://goo.gl/5V12KT ▌ Follow Us on Twitter : https://goo.gl/C21YRM ▌ Follow us on Pinterest : https://goo.gl/wSti4m ▌ Follow Us on Google+ : https://goo.gl/tmdRkY ▌ Subscribe us for Email : http://goo.gl/84D6JY ▌ Like Us on Facebook : https://goo.gl/jYDYwC -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "NASCAR star Dale Earnhardt Jr. retiring at end of 2017 NASCAR season" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GJAnNI-hCjA -~-~~-~~~-~~-~-

Plane passengers recorded the moment a drunk man launched a foul-mouthed rant, boasting about his £2.8million salary while being removed from a flight. The man, who identifies himself as David Brackett, thought to be a real estate company boss, was filmed by fellow passengers - also boasting about his 20/20 vision Mobile phone footage shows the unruly man embroiled in a war of words with passengers and flight attendants on the Jet Blue flight. His cringe worthy tirade sees him bragging about his lavish collection of six homes, having an unusually high IQ and 20/20 vision. At one point, he even appears to tell a passenger to, "eat s*** and die". The man's expletive laden rant was filmed by fellow passenger Sara Walter Bear shortly before the long haul flight from Long Beach to Sacramento took off.

JetBlue removed the passenger, lawyer Dan Goldstein, before the flight took off from New York's JFK Airport bound for Hawaii Thursday morning. Ivanka was sitting coach and traveling with her husband, Jared Kushner, and other family members. Goldstein's spouse, college professor Matthew Lasner, tweeted a play by play of the confrontation.
