Woman booted from flight at FLL after tantrum over seat next to child

FORT LAUDERDALE-HOLLYWOOD INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT, FLA. (WSVN) - Chaos ensued inside the cabin of a JetBlue flight at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport when a passenger decided she didn’t like her assigned seat.

Cellphone video allegedly captured 32-year-old Valerie Gonzalez throwing a profanity-laced tantrum just before departure to Las Vegas, Thursday night.

According to the Broward Sheriff’s Office, Gonzalez yelled out that she refused to sit next to a 3-year-old because she had been drinking all day.

Things escalated when she demanded to change seats with another passenger and they refused.

“Are you gonna tape this and make me viral, [expletive]?” Gonzalez said in the video. “Tape this. Who’s taping this? Who’s taping this?”

She then blows kisses to all the passengers around her before she declares, “[expletive] all y’all.”

Eventually crew members ordered her to get off the plane.

“I’ll take my [expletives]. [Expletive] all y’all. My mom’s gonna be so proud of me tomorrow. I don’t give a [expletive],” Gonzalez said as she left the plane.

As she made her way out, she allegedly shoved a JetBlue worker.

“Don’t touch my, [expletive]. I’ll get off the plane. Get my [expletive] off the [expletive] under-thing, she said. Bye! Enjoy yourselves on Vegas, babies! Vegas, baby! Vegas! I’ll be there in an hour,” she added.

Gonzalez appeared in court Friday morning after being charged with one count of touch or strike battery.

She has since paid her bond and has been released.
