The incident took place at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. As you can see in this Instagram post (NSFW language), the passenger was said to be enraged after being stranded for 10 hours due to a flight cancellation.
But the true story, according to JetBlue
, is that she was denied boarding for being intoxicated. “The customer in the viral video was scheduled on a flight which did not experience any major delays,” the airline told Yahoo.
