A passenger's rant onboard a Spirit Airlines plane is going viral on social media.
Passenger Safira Allen had apparently missed an earlier flight from Atlanta to Las Vegas on May 1. Airline officials said Allen ran down the boarding ramp of another Spirit flight to Vegas and took a seat that wasn't ticketed to her.
When the gate agent tried to remove her from the flight, Allen refused and instead fired up her cellphone to take her story to Facebook Live.
In her video, which has landed millions of views on Facebook, Allen goes on a tirade about the airline's name, among other things.
"Y'all going to use Jesus' name, the Holy Spirit? That's got to change, y'all need to be called something else. Y'all need to change y'all name because nothing Holy Spirit about this airline."
Minutes into the rant, a crew member on the flight is heard telling other passengers that they will have to deplane to redo the boarding process, which prompted a negative response from many onboard.
"If I can't go to Las Vegas, Nevada, neither can y'all!" Allen is heard telling the passengers as they exit.
Atlanta police are eventually seen boarding the plane to remove Allen, who gets her bag and finally leaves her seat, but she keeps her Facebook Live rolling.

What's funny is the fact that she wanted to go to that most "unholy" of places, Las Vegas.
Put her on a No Fly List
Isn’t interfering with a flight a violation of fedral law?
She want her repartations!!!
Another stupid, messed-up, “entitled” black woman.
Let’s see. If CEO Kevin Johnson of Starbuck’s were running Spirit, all black women could get free seats on flights going anywhere.
and a loud mouth.
This incident sounds as if it may not have been Spirit’s fault.
But Spirit was the airline that sold us advance tickets for flights and then WITHOUT ANY NOTICE cancelled the flights WEEKS ahead of departure...no notice at all....no phone call no email no text no letter no nothing. We would up stranded at the airport and Spirit refused to help us find alternate airlines. no help at all. Spirit also failed to refund and we had to threaten to sue before we got our money back. The alternate airline we did find...charged much more for the LAST MINUTE tickets.. as is unfortunately customary in the airline industry... we lost a lot of $$$. We had formerly flown Spirit a lot, it was decent (never wonderful but okay)... but this incident and especially Spirit’s totally unhelpful attitude...made us leave them forever. Caveat Emptor.
Looks like it.
Hopefully she won't be going anywhere on an airplane for a very long time? But some politico will screw this around and a high profile ambulance chaser will get her some reparations from Spirit Airlines.
Reason0 no. 752 I no longer fly.
I don’t blame you.
Because the the religious reference she may lose her case. Because of black privilege she may get free flights for life.
Sporting a Star of David and invoking Jesus while engaging in criminal acts.
“Atlanta police are eventually seen”
Now right there is the problem. The word eventually should not be in that sentence. “Soon” works. “Right away” is good. “Immediately” is even better. More than that I think the words “tossed”, “fanny”, “restrained”, and “booted” should be in there too.
“Tommy Sotomayor please pickup the BT-1000 hotline...”
