Southwest Passenger Calls Chicago Flight Attendant N-Word


By Rebecca Bream, Patch

A Southwest Airlines passenger was removed from a flight for yelling racial slurs at flight attendants, therefore causing a delay for the flight traveling from Chicago Midway to Houston, ABC13 in Houston (KTRK) reported. The news report said according to witnesses, the woman became upset and started using profanities and the N-word when the flight attendant told her to put her table off to prepare for takeoff.

Southwest Airlines released this statement to KTRK:

"On Flight #5593 with scheduled service from Chicago Midway to Houston Hobby on Saturday morning, our reports indicate that a Customer refused to comply with our Flight Crew's instructions after boarding and before the flight departed Chicago. The customer became unruly and verbally abusive toward our flight attendants, and the decision was made to return to the gate to deplane the Customer, where she was met by local law enforcement officers. Our employees handled the situation professionally with grace and class, and we do not condone or tolerate such profane and unruly behavior on board our aircraft. Once the customer deplaned the aircraft, the flight resumed to Houston Hobby, arriving about an hour later than originally scheduled."

According to KTRK, the passenger's face is blurred because she has not been charged.
