Flight attendant punched in face by angry passenger

It’s Monday of a new week, and you know what that means don’t you?

A new story about a grumpy, disruptive, completely selfish airline passenger.

This week’s incident happened on board a JetBlue flight which was due to fly from Los Angeles to New York.

Luckily, the event happened while the plane was still on the tarmac at LAX.

So what happened this time?

Well, the passenger, who was filmed yelling profanities at the flight attendants, then punched one of them in the face.

Yep, that’s right.

A flight attendant was assaulted by a screaming man, truly deplorable behaviour.

According to the Daily Mail, prior to the assault, the man was screaming: “Get the f*** off of me!”

“Big where the f*** are you at! I need the seat Biggie!”

“Why are we still in the f***ing airport? We are not on a f***ing plane obviously,’ he continues. ‘I get high as sh** I get f***ing dumb water!”

After the man punched the attendant he was immediately restrained, with a witness telling the Daily Mail: “After the flight attendant was hit, he immediately restrained the man and asked for assistance.

“This could have been so much worse had they all not acted so professionally.”

After he was cuffed, the crazed man proceeded to break free of the cuffs three times and eventually he was subdued.

Check out footage of the ordeal here:
