A couple was removed from an American Airlines flight after the woman chased her boyfriend down the aisle and smashed a laptop computer over his head for “looking at another woman”.
Shocking footage of the incident, which took place onboard a flight from Miami to Los Angeles, was shared on social media.
In it, the female passenger can be heard loudly swearing at her other half.
“You want to try to look at other women? F*** you,” she says.
A flight attendant can be seen trying to calm the woman down, appealing to her by pointing out that a small child is sitting behind them.

“Yeah I know, I f***ing consoled the f***ing child,” the woman responds loudly.
She also tells her boyfriend repeatedly to shut up.
Another passenger can be heard saying, “Why don’t they take her off the plane?”
After the man follows cabin crew instructions to accompany them to the front of the aircraft, his girlfriend chases him down the aisle and hits him with a laptop and her fists, causing other passengers to cry out in fear.
The woman then barges past several flight attendants to retrieve her bag.
“Ma’am, you’re going to be charged with assault,” one tells her, to which she responds: “Yeah, whatever.”
The video was shared on Twitter by fellow passenger Julia Scorupco.
“Yes she hulk smashed a Dell computer on his head,” she tweeted in a thread about the incident.
The video quickly went viral and has been viewed 4.6 million times at the time of writing.
An American Airlines spokesperson told The Independent: “Prior to departure from the gate on Sunday at Miami International Airport, two passengers who were travelling together were involved in a dispute. Law enforcement was requested, and both passengers were removed from the aircraft.
“We thank the American crew who worked quickly to diffuse the situation. Their actions resulted in a safe environment for all of our passengers.”
