FULL TITLE: 'Hit me!' The shocking moment an American Airlines flight attendant challenges a passenger to a FIGHT after 'hitting a crying mother in struggle over her baby's stroller'
A shocking video has emerged showing an American Airlines employee challenging a passenger to a fight after allegedly hitting a woman with a stroller on a domestic flight.
The upsetting footage, filmed shortly before Flight 591 departed from San Francisco on Friday afternoon, shows the airline employee goading a passenger and saying, 'hit me'.
The clip was uploaded by passenger Surain Adyanthaya, who explained he started filming after the flight attendant 'violently took a stroller from a lady with her baby on my flight, hitting her and just missing the baby'.
Adyanthaya went on to explain: 'They just in-voluntarily escorted the mother and her kids off the flight and let the flight attendant back on, who tried to fight other passengers. The mom asked for an apology and the AA official declined.'
In the video, a woman is seen standing at the front of the airplane as she is holding a child in her arms.

Fly out of SF and pretty good chance you get a bunch of lump wrist male stewardesses.
Someone needs to do a dominatrix remix of that flight attendant.
It would be fitting as mockery to turn them into an S&M flight attendant.
Come fly the angry skies.
I have no idea who is right, and who is wrong.
People need to stop flying for one week—just one week, nobody sets foot on a plane. When the airlines make no profit, they’ll wake up and start treating people right.
But as long as the sheeple keep flying, these things will keep happening.
This is a lie. It is clear in the video the passenger threatened to hit the employee. The context of the "go ahead an hit me" was in response to that threat. It was the passenger who was challenging the employee to a fight and the employee calling his bluff.
I just will not fly...they treat you like they're doing you a big favor by taking your money and cramming you into those tiny little seats...
no matter what a flight "attendant" should be apologetic in his attitude, not confrontational which he was...
a nice little quiet "I'm so sorry, I was just in a hurry" would have been better...
Another sign of the times we live in.
Yeah, it doesn't show how the woman became upset or her baby got bumped or whatever it was.
I am suspicious of the story because the reporting mischaracterized the part we did see--so I wouldn't trust them one what we can't (they said the employee threatened to start a fight, but in fact the employee was responding to a threat from a passenger who had threatened to "deck" him).
Guy in blue and white was making trouble too.
Idiots shouldn’t be allowed to go on planes.
No sympathy for stupid parents and troublemaking jerks.
Unless things have changed, you can NOT take a baby stroller ON TO a commercial airline flight. You can take it on the ramp but then you must leave it before boarding the plane with your baby (babies). The stroller will then be stowed by the airline crew and you can get it when you exit the plane at your destination. If the female passenger ignored employees’ instructions and attempted to take her stroller onto the plane, she was in the wrong. If she somehow succeeded in getting it past the airplane’s door, the flight crew would take it back off the plane. It sounds like that is likely what happened and the distraught female passenger fought allowing them to remove it.
That young mothers crying was getting to be annoying. I can understand her crying but that was way too long.
And the guy should have been arrested.
If I was behind him I’d have called 911 and told them of a psycho on a plane trying to start fights with the crew.
(Probably not really, but still...)
I hate these idiot passengers who screw things up for everyone else with their stupidity and selfishness.
“no matter what a flight “attendant” should be apologetic in his attitude, not confrontational which he was...”
That guy was the one being confrontational.
If he wasn’t arrested or removed from the flight, he was lucky and treated much better than he deserved to be.
Headline is typically misleading in that the passenger instigated the confrontation with his own unnecessary belligerence at exactly the wrong time.
Yes, the obnoxious, interfering male passenger was a major league jerk.
I am more concerned about the unprofessional conduct of the reporting. Also as far as we know that belligerent passenger may have already gotten several soft answers before he received a harsh one. I certainly am not going to trust the reporter to mention the full story in context since I have already caught him lying about it.
“This is a lie. It is clear in the video the passenger threatened to hit the employee. The context of the “go ahead an hit me” was in response to that threat. It was the passenger who was challenging the employee to a fight and the employee calling his bluff. “
More from the media liars.
