Dubai Emirates Flight To JFK New York Quarantined After Passengers Reported Sick Pixabay

A woman reportedly launched an attack and punched an employee of Emirates Airline after she missed her flight at Mexico City International Airport on Tuesday, Nov. 1.

The woman, whose identity has not been revealed by the authorities, arrived late to check in for her flight at the Mexico City International Airport on Tuesday, Nov. 1. The woman then attempted to use an expired passport to board the airline. However, seeing the expired passport, the Emirates agent denied the traveler the ability to board the flight, New York Post reported.

Enraged over the rejection, the woman in a fit of rage hit the employee and started shouting at the employee. She then started throwing various items, including objects from a suitcase and computer equipment at the employee. As she continued throwing the tantrum, the woman stood on top of the actual check-in counter and began yelling at other airport travelers.

Meanwhile, the airport personnel tried to calm her down. After climbing down from the counter, she was eventually detained by airport security while police responded to the scene.

“We can confirm that on Nov. 1, an incident occurred at the check-in counter at Mexico City International Airport, in which a passenger who arrived late at the check-in counter was also discovered to be traveling with an expired passport,” Emirates said in a statement.

A shocking video of the woman going on a rampage at Mexico City International Airport was captured and has been shared online. In the now-viral video, the traveler can be seen shouting, tossing items, and jumping on the airport check-in counter, Fox News reported.

“The client was denied the trip, and she became rebellious and physically abusive with the ground staff — so it was necessary for airport security and police to intervene,” the Dubai-based airline added.

"The safety of our passengers and crew is of critical importance and will not be compromised," the airline added in the statement.

Details regarding the woman’s name and where she was flying have not been released by the authorities.
