As a flight attendant, I can tell you that her behavior must have been totally off the charts for them to do something like this. People have no idea how crazy some of our passengers can get. We will put up with a whole lot before we would ever even consider something this drastic. (We might be tempted but wow, this is wild!)

Sounds like a lot of paperwork for that crew!! LOL
