North Texas woman wants apology for getting kicked off flight

A North Texas woman who was forced off a flight calls her experience "humiliating.”

Alexandria Wright is one of the six passengers thrown off a Spirit Airlines plane in Los Angeles last weekend -- a flight that was bound for D/FW Airport.

With her attorney on Thursday, Wright shared her cell phone video of the confrontation between a couple of passengers and a flight attendant over a seat assignment.

Six black passengers were removed from the flight, and Wright points out the flight attendant was white.

“So I started recording, everybody else started recording, and then he’s like, ‘You guys need to stop recording! Put your phones down!’” said Wright. “So at that point, I stand up. I’m like, ‘Sir, this is ridiculous, nobody's doing anything wrong.’”

“What you have is a flight attendant who took a situation that was routine and normal and went crazy with it,” said Wright’s attorney, Scott Palmer. “It's unfortunate that he was not deplaned."

Wright has not ruled out filing a lawsuit in the matter, but for now she says she wants an apology.
