An annoyed passenger was kicked off a Delta Air Lines flight earlier this month after “screaming” about being seated next to an 8-month-old, according to the baby’s mother.

Marissa Rundell, a mom from Hammondsport, N.Y., was seated with her son Mason on a flight scheduled to depart from JFK International Airport for Syracuse on Feb. 6, when a woman preparing to take her seat across the aisle began complaining, Rundell told the Daily Mail.
“Can I sit somewhere else?” the woman can be heard saying in footage Rundell shared to Facebook. “I’m not sitting near a crying baby.”
Soon afterward, an attendant on the flight — which was operated by Endeavor Air, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Delta — tells the woman she can take the next flight if she’d prefer.
“No, I can’t,” the woman shoots back.
Rundell, meawhile, says she’s extremely pleased with how Delta handled the unruly passenger.
“This lady thought she was going to be rude to me and Mason, now she has no way home today,” Rundell wrote on Facebook. “Thank you to the lovely Delta flight attendant for not letting this women [sic] bully us.”
“Karma is a b—-.”
Peirez’s employer, the New York State Council on the Arts, started an investigation, and says she’s been “placed on leave until further notice.”
Rundell tells CBS News she doesn’t regret sharing the video, but she does regret that it has affected Peirez’s job.
