Yes i know it's the D/M and they do exaggerate a bit, but surely the video can't lie. the article states a woman with a child in her arms after allegedly being hit with a stroller on the flight. One man jumps in to defend her and is also challenged by the staff to a fight "bring it on" he says.

American Airlines Attendant Hits Mother and Baby with Stroller

American Airlines flight attendant allegedly 'whacks a mother with a stroller while she holds her twin babies and reduces her to tears' - then is filmed challenging a passenger to a FIGHT and yelling 'hit me!'

The upsetting footage, filmed before Flight 591 departed from San Francisco on Friday afternoon, shows the airline staff member goading a passenger and saying, 'hit me'.


The clip was uploaded by passenger Surain Adyanthaya, who explained he started filming after the flight attendant 'violently took a stroller from a lady with her baby on my flight, hitting her and just missing the baby'.

Adyanthaya went on to explain: 'They just involuntarily escorted the mother and her kids off the flight and let the flight attendant back on, who tried to fight other passengers. The mom asked for an apology and the AA official declined.'

Another passenger, a woman, also confronts an American Airlines employee about the situation.

The situation escalates further when a man in an American Airlines uniform boards the plane.

The male passenger who got up out of his seat to intervene confronts the uniformed employee.

'You do that to me and I'll knock you flat,' the man says.

The staff member responds by pointing his finger at the man and telling him to 'stay out of it.'

The male passenger then steps closer to the employee, who challenges him to a fight.

'We are deeply sorry for the pain we have caused this passenger and her family and to any other customers affected by the incident.

'We are making sure all of her family's needs are being met while she is in our care.'

'After electing to take another flight, we are taking special care of her and her family and upgrading them to first class for the remainder of their international trip.

'The actions of our team member captured here do not appear to reflect patience or empathy, two values necessary for customer care.

'In short, we are disappointed by these actions. The American team member has been removed from duty while we immediately investigate this incident.'

This is the latest PR nightmare for the US aviation industry.
