After the woman finishes, she is seen returning to her seat, saying she needs to retrieve her purse.
On the way, a member of the cabin crew says: “You’re going to get charged with assault.”
“Fine, whatever,” she replies.
An American Airlines spokeswoman told Business Insider in an emailed statement: “Prior to departure from the gate on Sunday at Miami International Airport, two passengers who were traveling 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.”
