    • Lindsay Capri Bien-aime, 22, on flight from Fort Lauderdale to Charlotte
    • Had to be restrained after lashing out at police and swearing at passengers
    • She was later charged with battery on a law enforcement officer
    • One officer was kicked, another elbowed in the head and a third scratched
    • The flight was delayed for a full 45 minutes because of the incident

    A female passenger was removed from a U.S. Airways flight on Sunday after screaming abusive language and then lashing out at police who came to take her off the plane. Lindsay Capri Bien-aime, 22, was on a flight from Fort Lauderdale to Charlotte when a row with flight attendants escalated after she did not follow instructions to turn off her cellphone. Bien-aime was caught on another passenger's cellphone as she screamed curses at staff and fellow passengers.

    Three police officers came on to the plane to escort the 22-year-old back to the terminal.

    On the video, which was posted on YouTube, a deputy can be heard saying: 'You can get off the plane or you can get off the plane and go to jail.' But despite repeated warnings Bien-aime refuses to budge saying: 'You don't want to make this worse right here' and 'you better not touch me.'

    When another passenger tried to intervene she swears at them before complaining: 'This is bullshit, I'm gonna hold up the whole plane, Someone gotta tell me something.' Eventually a flight attendant comes up to her seat and explained that the reason she is being ejected is because she had ignored requests to stop talking on her phone. But she still refuses to go.


    Bien-aime repeatedly says that she has not caused any problems and warns officers 'not to touch her' before lashing out. One officer was kicked, another elbowed in the head and the third deputy was scratched as they tried to remove the violent passenger.

    The U.S. Airways flight was delayed for 45 minutes because of the incident. Bien-aime was charged with battery on a law enforcement officer.

    I wonder how much of a "warning" the flight attendant gave her. Maybe the African has a point?

    Even if the flight attendants didn't give her much warning (I'm guessing they did) the deputy gave her her options clearly and she chose the "go to jail" option.

    Cell phones should be allowed on, there is no proof of any problem:


    According to the F.A.A., 712 million passengers flew within the United States in 2010. Let’s assume that just 1 percent of those passengers — about two people per Boeing 737, a conservative number — left a cellphone, e-reader or laptop turned on during takeoff or landing. That would mean seven million people on 11 million flights endangered the lives of their fellow passengers.
    Yet, in 2010, no crashes were attributed to people using technology on a plane. None were in 2009. Or 2008, 2007 and so on. You get the point.

    Maybe they don't want some annoying, loud yacking going on that bothers respectful passengers and might hinder folks from hearing instructions if there was an emergency. Forces common courtesy perhaps. Regardless of "why" it is a rule on the airline and they can toss you off for not complying. Same as they would if you fired up a cigarette. I don't see the issue here. Maybe then people should be allowed to have cellphone conversations in movie theaters as well.....it won't stop the projector or anything.

    Agreed but that is the airlines decision, not Ms. Boon. Officers have alot more patience than I do.

    "should" isn't an excuse. if she didnt like it, acting like a selfish, barn-raised cunt isn't the way to go. "Watch out for the little boy"...fuck off. she had ample opportunity and didnt care what her actions may have reflected on the child.

    So entitled yet so obnoxious.

    not exactly the best analogy... others can breath in your smoke or be distracted by your talking or the light from your phone - none of that applies to someone reading their Kindle.

    Remember, these flight attendants can be hysterical too:

    here is a Muslim woman who said on the phone, "Hurry, I've got to go" and the flight attendant had her removed because she thought she heard her say, "It's a go"




    Just before takeoff, when the cabin doors were still open, Abassi said into her phone “Hurry, I’ve got to go.”

    Soon after, Abassi was told by Southwest Air crewmembers that she could not fly to San Jose on that flight and was quickly escorted off the plane by TSA agents


    Abassi went through Lindbergh Field’s typical security measures including a secondary inspection and was cleared but when a flight attendant alleged that she heard Abassi say “it’s a go” into her cell phone just before takeoff, the flight crew called TSA agents and successfully removed her from the plane.

    “Two Southwest agents apologized and told me the captain has the final say and they don’t feel comfortable with you on the flight,” Abassi said Wednesday. “I tried to explain that I have a lot of work to do and they still said ‘We will put you on the next flight,’” she said.


    Even though TSA agents removed Abassi from the plane, they did not give her further security scrutiny. They didn't pat her down or take her to a room to be interrogated he said. Agents instead escorted her to the Southwest Air ticket counter to get another flight.

    “I was in tears,” said Abassi.

    She handed her purse and phone for inspection but she said security didn't even touch it.

    “They said 'We know you're clear but we cannot let you go on this flight because they are not willing to accept you,'” she said.

    My analogy was fine. I was only using it in that it's a rule......not comparing issues the cigs vs. cell phones may cause. You are clinging to should it be a rule. Maybe it shouldn't but that is irrelevant.

    I'm sure stewardesses can be cunty and wrong as well but this doesn't appear to be the case from your initial example. Clearly that passenger was the issue.

    of course

    she should have followed the rules

    she should have left when the po-po came aboard

    if she did, she would have simply been rebooked on a later flight, instead she had to spend the night and jail and deal with all the charges - not to mention the media attention. Her only saving grace at this point is to file a lawsuit and hope that she gets her fellow Africans on the jury.

    I'm just wondering how a low-rent jigaboo like that paid for a plane ticket, and why she would be flying somewhere :uscratch:

    Who cares?

    The attendant told you to turn it off, turn it the fuck off.

    Don't like it? Get the fuck off the plane. :coffee:

    Maybe it's just ANOTHER unnecessary "control" issue. Flight crews are notorious control freaks that tend to overreact because of the power the can use to fuck with your travel and your life...

    Kinda like bad cops. :coffee:
