10 September En Route to Fort Lauderdale, Florida

A chaotic situation arose on a JetBlue flight from New York’s LaGuardia Airport to Fort Lauderdale Airport in Florida. The passengers were on a tight schedule with their connections for an international flight to Quito, Ecuador. The flight attendants asked the other passengers to let those with the tight connections deplane first. At that point, dozens of passengers got out of their seats and began trying to get their bags from the overhead bins while the plane was in the air. Despite multiple attempts to get them to sit back down, the flight attendants became exasperated and threatened to call police once on the ground. The passengers began pushing their way out of the aircraft at the gate. In spite of all efforts, the passengers reportedly missed the connection.
