A pilot with United Airlines left her passengers in a state of shock and terror after she had a complete meltdown before take-off.
She stood before the passengers and crew out of uniform and addressed the plane over the PA system.
What happened next seemed like something out of a bad movie. The distressed pilot began discussing her divorce, political views, and even delievered racial slurs directed at some of the passengers.
Almost immediately some passengers began filming her outburst and streaming it on social media. Some passengers began standing and told the pilot they wanted to disembark. “Ok, if you don’t feel safe, get off the airplane,” the pilot said. “I’ll stop and I won’t fly the airplane. Don’t worry. I’m going to let my co-pilot fly it. He’s a man. Ok?”
More than 20 people left the plane because they felt the pilot was mentally or emotionally unstable.
The plane was delayed for more than two hours before a replacement pilot could be found. The original pilot was relieved of her duties and is suspended from flying pending an internal investigation by United Airlines.
