JetBlue removed the passenger, lawyer Dan Goldstein, before the flight took off from New York's JFK Airport bound for Hawaii Thursday morning.
Ivanka was sitting coach and traveling with her husband, Jared Kushner, and other family members. Goldstein's spouse, college professor Matthew Lasner, tweeted a play by play of the confrontation:
“Ivanka and Jared at JFK flying commercial. My husband chasing them down to harass them,” he tweeted.
Then posted: “Ivanka and Jared on our flight. My husband expressed displeasure in a calm tone. JetBlue staff overheard and they kicked us off the plane.”
He also posted a photo of Ivanka with the caption: “Ivanka just before @jetblue kicked us off our flight when a flt (sic) attendant overheard my husband expressing displeasure about flying w/ Trumps.”
JetBlue said in a statement: “If the crew determines that a customer is causing conflict on the aircraft, the customer will be asked to deplane. In this instance, our team worked to re-accommodate the party on the next available flight.”
Earlier in the day, cameras caught Trump’s oldest daughter, in workout clothes, leaving her Manhattan apartment for the airport.
The president-elect's daughter is also under attack by artists whose work hangs on the walls of her apartment.
After she posted herself standing next to her art and images of the paintings she owned, the artists joined forces with the Halt Action Group to initiate a "Dear Ivanka" Instagram campaign to protest the president-elect, and have asked for their work to be taken off her walls.
One artist wrote: “Dear @ivankatrump please get my work off of your walls. I am embarrassed to be seen with you.”

"Dear Ivanka, bigotry is not in style," wrote another.
Washington Post columnist Emily Heil told Inside Edition: “In some ways she's such a proxy for Donald Trump that when she goes out in public
"I think people take their emotions and their ire out on Ivanka Trump in a way that they might not for other daughters because she has served so much as his right hand.”
