To make matters worse, the woman was apparently smoking around another passenger suffering from asthma.
The alleged victim, Alexa Majdalawi, told Fox News that the rule-breaker was puffing the cigarette in her face and even “turning around to blow it.” Majdawali added that she eventually reported the incident to the aircraft’s crew.
“Flight attendants noticed the odor, and the other guests were quick to point out who was responsible and hand over what remained of the extinguished cigarette,” a Spirit Airlines spokesperson told the Miami Herald. “Our crew summoned law enforcement officers to have them waiting at the gate to remove the passenger.”
In a follow-up clip posted by Trifonova, titled ‘This is what happens when you smoke on a plane’, policemen can be seen waking up the woman (who had fallen asleep) and informing her she was being ejected from the aircraft.
