Rant on American Airlines Flight Ends With Flight Attendant in Hospital


American Airlines sent at least one passenger an email notifying her the airline would credit her AAdvantage account with 10,000 bonus miles because of the incident. The email read, in part, "We wanted to take a moment to reach out to you concerning the incident prior to the takeoff of flight 2332 this morning. We are very sorry for any alarm or inconvenience that the situation caused. Please be assured that we are thoroughly investigating the matter."

Officials at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport tell ABC News they are not pursuing any charges at this time.

The Association of Professional Flight Attendants has also issued a statement:

"There was an unfortunate but non-violent confrontation involving a flight attendant aboard an aircraft preparing for takeoff this morning at DFW.

Passenger accounts have been reported in the media but details remain sketchy.

The incident is being investigated by the proper authorities with the full cooperation of APFA. APFA representatives have been in contact with the crew, the company, and the authorities and are providing assistance as needed. No one was seriously injured and the flight to ORD did eventually take off with a different flight attendant crew."
