Miami Woman Escorted Off Flight Just for Snapping Photo

Do not piss off US Airways flight attendant Tonialla G. Certainly do not think about snapping a picture of her name tag, because she will have you booted off that plane so quick, and apparently US Airways will comply.

Miami photographer Sandy DeWitt claims she was kicked off a Miami-bound flight from Philadelphia for merely snapping the attendant's name tag on her iPhone. Though the airline says there is more to the story. 

According to Carlos Miller at Pixiq, DeWitt noticed Tonialla being rude to passengers in the boarding area, so she took out her iPhone to snap a picture of her name tag and planned to report her latter to US Airways.

Tonialla, however, noticed, and later came up to DeWitt and demanded she turn her phone back on and deleted the picture. Ironically the photo didn't even come out properly. After some protest, DeWitt complied, but that wasn't enough. Tonialla then informed the pilot that DeWitt was a "security risk." 

So two other flight attendants escorted DeWitt off the plane and would not allow her to re-board. Although US Airways had deemed DeWitt a "security risk," police were not involved, and representatives from the airline told her to catch another flight on another carrier. Hours latter DeWitt managed to catch a late flight home on SouthWest. 

However, Todd Lehmacher, a spokesman for US Airways says there was more to the story.

"Once onboard, she was using foul and explicit language," Lehmacher told MSNBC. "She was removed at the request of the captain."

Lehmacher would not elaborate on the rest of the incident.

No kidding, what an embarrassment.  After the "latter" debacle(s) my favorite part was "Tonialla, however, noticed,"... have some standards for crying out loud.  Considering I check comments like this for errors I don't think it's asking too much that Munzenrieder bother doing to same for his "articles."

Well what does "crew" mean? It means someone who is in charge of you while you are on their vessel, or someone with whom you have to comply (obey). Low level? Sure I guess, who cares? They pay me $50/hour to fly to Tokyo 3 times a month, stay in a 4 star hotel, then fly back. Call it what you want. I still make a lot of money and only work 12 days a month. But the best part is that you still have to do what I say.

I tend to believe the photographer in this instance.  It is not clear if Tonialla G. is a gate attendant or a flight attendant.  However, just because Tonialla G. is pissed off does not give her the right to accuse someone else of being a security risk.  That is very wrong.  Her picture was taken in a public area, the photographer agreed to delete the photo, no harm no foul until Ms. G gets on her high horse and decides she has the power to make someone else's life miserable.  And cry me a river all of you so called airline employees that have been commenting.  I have witnessed bad behavior from passengers and from airline employees.  No one is without blame.  This is just another on my long list of reasons I don't travel by air anymore.

Policy strictly prohibits personal photography of cargo, and crewmembers including ground crew. People (DeWitt) do not get to do whatever they feel like once they walk into an airport terminal. It's not public property, and DeWitts intimidation attempt is at the felony level.

felony level ??   If this happened to me, I'd so your ugly bitch ass and all the other flying waitresses on that airline ...  fucking bunch of assholes that let a little bit of power go to their itty bitty brains. Get back to screwing the pilots and sucking those Asian cocks and leave the paying public alone, fucking whores.
