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

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.

FARGO, N.D. (KVLY/KXJB) -- A woman is behind bars, after pleading guilty to resisting arrest -- following an angry outburst on an Allegiant Airlines flight. A prosecutor told a judge that Allison Johnson kicked an officer, attempted to kick another, and when she was placed into a police car car she tried to kick out the windows. Johnson says she doesn't remember getting arrested Wednesday night. "I am sorry, I apologize to everyone, I wouldn't want to hurt anyone, it's not me to act like this, it's the alcohol," she told the judge. But she's potentially facing more charges for what wound her up in that cop car. According to an eyewitness, "This woman got up and went to the back of the plane and two of the attendants tried to talk to her to get her back into her seat, and this woman grabbed one of the attendant's arm, and one of the other attendants, the second attendant, asked her to let go and please go back to her seat, and she let go, and with an open hand slapped the second attendant in the face." The plane hadn't taken off yet, so the pilot turned around to drop Johnson off. "One of the fight crew had said to me, yeah we have to get her off, because we don't know what she's capable once we get in the air," the witness said. In court she was a completely different person. "I'm not like this at all, I'm so embarrassed, and I am so sorry," she told the judge. Passengers say the assault cost them an hour of travel time. Since pleading guilty to resisting arrest, Johnson will spend a few days in jail, pay a fine, and is required to get a chemical evaluation. Johnson could face additional charges, such as simple assault or disorderly conduct.

A woman was forcibly removed from a US Airways flight on Sunday for refusing to comply with flight crew instructions. Much of what appears to have happened was videotaped by a fellow passenger Howard Woods and posted to YouTube (warning: graphic language). The flight, US Airways 906, was bound for Charlotte, N.C., from Fort Lauderdale, Fla. According to a report obtained by ABC News from the Broward County Sheriff's Office, passenger Lindsay Bien-aime refused to comply with flight attendant instructions prior to takeoff and "became unruly." The pilot ordered the woman off the plane. Despite orders from Broward County officers who had boarded the flight, Bien-aime "continued to refuse to exit the plane" and "became irate, screaming and yelling profanities." ABC News' attempts to reach Bien-aime or a representative were not successful. On the four-minute profanity-laced video, a woman is heard shouting not only at the officers trying to remove her from the flight but at the passengers around her. "I will hold up this whole [expletive] plane, the woman can be heard saying. "I don't care where people gotta go." Should Bien-aime be added to our list of the World's Worst Airline Passengers? Check it out and let us know in the comments below. In the video, the woman can be heard repeatedly requesting that a flight attendant come to her seat and explain what she had done wrong before she would leave the plane. Another voice can be heard saying, she has "been on her phone the whole time." When the woman still wouldn't budge, the officers attempted to handcuff her, and a scuffle ensued. Two more people who appeared to be passengers came to the aid of the officers. According to the police report, Bien-aime "scratched, kicked and violently resisted" attempts to remove her from the plane. She was charged on three counts, including battery, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest with violence. The incident comes on the heels of another in which a group of 100 students were kicked off an AirTran flight when some of them would not comply with flight attendant requests to put away mobile devices. US Airways did not respond to ABC News' request for comment.
