Mom-of-Two Booted Off American Airlines Flight: 'I Was Mortified'
Tiana Fough told INSIDE EDITION she didn't do anything wrong before she was ordered to leave the plane.
The Oregon woman who was booted from an American Airlines flight says she was “mortified” at being thrown off the jetliner.
Asked if she appreciated the outrage of her fellow passengers, Tiana Fough told INSIDE EDITION Thursday, “It was really nice. But I was mortified. I wish I could have ran.”
The mother of two was kicked off by an irritated flight attendant who said she ignored his directions to get out of the aisle.
“There was no way for me to know he was talking to me,” she said. “I didn’t make eye contact with him. “He wasn’t even in my line of sight.”
Passengers booed as Fough was led off.
“Oh, my God!” one can be heard saying on cell phone video of the incident.
“That's the last time I fly American!” says another.
Fough says she did nothing wrong. She was crying as she was forced off the Phoenix-to-Oregon flight.
“You’re so mean to me. I didn’t do anything,” she wailed.
American Airlines has aplogized to Fough, she said, and offered her financial compensation. She has not decided if she will pursue legal action, she said.
