American Airlines rant flight attendant

Skooter reporting 03/10/12

A couple of flight attendants were injured when an incident occurred on board an American Airlines scheduled for departure from Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport to Chicago O’Hare International Airport. Investigation of the incident is on going, Foxnews said.

It was reported that a flight attendant boiled with rage to passengers over the public address system on board American Airlines flight 2332 stating that plane was going to crash so that the plane had to be diverted back to the gate. The said flight attendant also grumbled about the airline's bankruptcy reorganization, according to reports.

It was told by two people on board the flight that the said crew member had to be contained by other crew members and passengers.

While the plane was taxiing on the runway, the furious flight attendant said, "We are not taking off. We're having technical difficulties. We are heading back to the gate," according to passengers. Another crew member told passengers to ignore the female flight attendant’s warning, but she kept complaining about technical problems. During her outburst she also complained to the airline’s bankruptcy reorganization, according to The Dallas Morning News.

"Captain," she said. "I am not responsible for crashing this plane."

The two flight attendants were brought to local hospitals for treatment after the incident, according to the airline statement.

"We continue to investigate the details and circumstances and will have no further comment at this time," the statement said. "We will ensure that the affected flight attendants receive proper care, and we commend our other crew members for their assistance in quickly getting the aircraft back to the gate so that customers could be re-accommodated. Our customers were not in danger at any time."

The airline proceeded with the flight and left for Chicago at 9:46 a.m., and is expected to arrive around noon.

The airport police and Transportation Security Administration were alerted after Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Tony Molinaro confirmed that there was an "altercation.”

The investigation is handled by the American Airlines, FBI spokeswoman Lydia Maese told the Morning News. She said that they did respond, assessed the situation and determined that there was no need for a federal investigation.
