On a recent flight on September 10, 2023, from LaGuardia Airport in New York (LGA) to Fort Lauderdale Airport (FLL). JetBlue passengers attempted to remove their luggage from overhead bins while the plane was still in the air.
A TikTok video of the chaos on board showed several unruly passengers anxious to get off the aircraft.
In the video, a flight attendant can be heard speaking slowly and deliberately over the intercom, “Please close the overhead bins.” “People were standing and pulling down their luggage,” said text over the video. While landing, we were still in the air.
Meanwhile, the video shows passengers standing and collecting their luggage. Green-Walker claimed that was the third statement, and at one point the flight attendants threatened to call the police as soon as they landed.
When the plane touched down, a line of passengers kept shoving their way outside. She claimed that the woman waiting next to her was travelling to Quito and that other passengers who were already standing would not let her leave to get her luggage. Green-Walker said in one of her comments that a piece of luggage nearly fell on a passenger during the rush to remove bags from the overhead compartments.
