A holiday weekend flight from Miami to New York never got off the ground after the crew arrived more than an hour late and angry passengers intimidated them so much that they refused to work.
American Airlines Flight 1908 was scheduled to leave Sunday evening from Miami en route to LaGuardia Airport in New York City. But the flight crew arrived an hour and 15 minutes late, prompting impatient and irate passengers to boo — and worse, MyFOX New York reported.
One witness said some people used "harsh language" with the gate attendants and were "really kind of like being a mob about it. It was scary."
When a few of the crewmembers refused to work because of the "hostile environment," American tried to find replacements — but to no avail, according to MyFOX New York. The airline had to put everyone up in a hotel and fly them out Monday afternoon.
Adding insult to injury? Flight 1908's passengers flew into LaGuardia, but their bags arrived at JFK.
