A passenger on American Airlines attacked a gate D23 employee in a violent altercation that was captured by multiple cameras. The victim remained calm despite the fact that the maskless attacker hurled insults and projectiles at him and then stormed off to pile more abuse.

Although people are critical that there were no cops to stop this, you have to understand that they were only 20 yards away from shooting a service dog or detaining an uncooperative black man.

TSA was actually standing there. People often forget that TSA screeners do not have the status of law enforcement officers.

TSA right here like, nope, Im on my lunch break and I dont get paid enough to deal with that kinda crazy. Chris (@Chris_nDC) August 28, 2021

The Miami Dade Police eventually responded and arrested the perpetrator.

We stand strong with @MiamiDadePD to protect the safety and security of all areas at the airport. @FAANews reported that there were more than 3,800 incidents of unruly behavior in 21. This behavior is not acceptable at MIA. The passenger was apprehended by police. Miami Int'l Airport (@iflymia) August 28, 2021

American Airlines should ban this passenger, or recommend that they fly Spirit. Spirit will begin service from Miami on October 6.

American Airlines CEO Doug Parker stated that today's passengers are different from his normal clients. This is more apparent than anywhere else, including Miami's brawling, revolting, fighting before New York flights, fighting at check-in counters, giving birth in the toilet, brawling for standby seats, and walking on the tarmac wearing a medical gown.
