Airline Passenger Booted Off Plane For Objecting to “Merry Christmas”!


An irate American Airlines passenger was tossed off a plane at La Guardia Airport after flipping out over being wished a “Merry Christmas”?

Yes, because a gate attendant and stewardess had the temerity to say; “Merry Christmas” – the Scrooge went ballistic and began yelling at the pilot and other airline workers.

The man was waiting to board American Airlines Flight 1140 to Dallas when a cheerful gate agent began welcoming everyone with the Yuletide greeting while checking boarding passes.

The grumpy passenger, who appeared to be traveling alone, barked at the woman, “You shouldn’t say that because not everyone celebrates Christmas.”

The agent replied, “Well, what should I say then?”

“Don’t say, ‘Merry Christmas!’ ” the man shouted before brushing past her.

Once on the plane, he was warmly greeted by a flight attendant who also wished him a “merry Christmas.” That was the last straw.

“Don’t say, ‘Merry Christmas!’ ” the man raged before lecturing the attendants and the pilot about their faux pas.

Then they booted his ass out and people were reportedly cheering as he was escorted out and hopefully into the loving arms of a rubber-gloved TSA Agent.. For those of you keeping score, that’s Christmas: 1  A-hole passenger: 0

Merry Christmas, American Airlines!
