Not everyone who gets kicked off a plane is a helpless victim.
A woman on a Delta flight from John F. Kennedy International Airport to Syracuse, New York was kicked off the plane after complaining about the mother and baby sitting next to her and then threatening the job of a flight attendant.
This lady thought she was going to be rude to me and Mason now she has no way home today. Thank you to the lovely Delta flight attendant for not letting this women bully us.
Karma is a b****

Marissa Rundell, 19, told The Daily Mail she was traveling with her eight-month-old son, Mason, when the angry woman took a seat beside them and immediately began causing trouble.
“She was the last one to get on the plane and I was in the second to last row of the plane,” Rundell said of the Feb. 6 flight.
“She came to the back and slammed her bags down. She said “this is f****** ridiculous. It’s bulls**t having to sit in the back of the plane.”
The mother reportedly asked the woman not to curse near her child, but was ignored as the fellow passenger continued to use vulgarity.
“I said again please watch your language she told me to shut the f*** up and shove it,” Rundell recalled. “That’s when the flight attendant came over and asked what the problem was.”
The video footage Rundell posted to Facebook showed the moment a flight attendant named Tabitha arrived on the scene.
In the video’s caption, she wrote:
“This lady thought she was going to be rude to me and Mason now she has no way home today. Thank you to the lovely Delta flight attendant for not letting this women bully us. Karma is a b****.”
“She brought up having to sit next to a crying baby (he wasn’t crying or fussing at all),” Rundell recounted.
When the woman stood up from her seat and demanded a new one, the flight attendant asked her to be seated. This prompted the irate passenger to complain more, eventually leading Tabitha to recommend a seat on another flight.
“I can’t,” the woman said. She slammed her belongings down on the seat and asked for the flight attendant’s name, which Tabitha provided along with her employee number.
“Thank you Tabitha, you may not have a job, tomorrow,” the woman threatened.
Tabitha then said she wanted her off the plane. The woman attempted to apologize, but the flight attendant brought a gate agent to handle the situation.
“I’m sorry, I was really stressed out,” the woman claimed.
Rundell said the woman was ordered off the plane, but first tried to talk her way out of it.
“Ten mins later she came back and got her things and was again swearing up a storm saying they will all regret kicking her off the plane,” the mother told Daily Mail.
According to Rundell, Tabitha later came back to apologize for the other passenger’s behavior.
“I thought it was funny how she was acting like a child throwing a tantrum,” Rundell said of the angry woman.
“Also I see videos all the time about people bashing airlines for kicking people off so this is like the opposite.”
The mother concluded with praise for the Delta staff.
“The flight attendants were absolutely amazing.”
In December, a woman was bumped from her seat on a United Airlines flight to make room for Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX). When the woman complained, the congresswoman accused her of racism.

Apparently, Delta does a better job than United of deciding who to kick off a flight.
