A United Airlines pilot was removed from an Austin to San Francisco flight Saturday evening.
The pilot boarded the flight dressed in regular clothes. Passengers said the pilot went on a “rant” about her divorce and the presidential election, and started crying.
One passenger on the flight, tweeted about the situation and called it scary.
In a video that was posted online, the pilot is seen saying over the intercom: “Don’t worry, I’m going to let my co-pilot fly it (the airplane). He’s a man. If you don’t feel safe, get off the airplane. But otherwise, we can go.”
After that comment, a man in the video appears to get up and request to get off of the airplane.
United removed the pilot and brought in a new crew to fly the plane.
