American Airlines passenger allegedly kicked off plane over bag space fight caught on video 

An irate American Airlines passenger allegedly got himself kicked off a flight after repeatedly complaining about a fellow traveler stashing too many bags in “his” overhead bin space, viral footage shows.

The man, dressed in a yellow t-shirt with his hair in a top knot, was caught on camera repeatedly ranting that “there’s no space” after another passenger supposedly stored luggage above him and then took their seat.

“This guy put his luggage up here, now we don’t have any space,” the enraged passenger could be heard saying in the video, which was posted on Reddit on Wednesday.

He repeated his complaints several times as travelers continued to board the plane, according to the footage.

“Now there’s no space,” the man insisted.

“He’s got no space. Look,” he added, referring to another passenger seated across the aisle who appeared to have just taken their seat.

A male flight attendant who was helping another passenger with her bags quickly intervened, pleading with the irate man to “stop.”

“Sir, I’m going to ask one more time. You need to stop with this whole luggage situation,” the flight attendant said, pointing his finger in the passenger’s face.

It wasn’t immediately clear how many previous times the flight attendant had told the man to back down.

“You point your finger at me one more time, I’m calling the police,” the enraged man shot back.

Before walking away, the flight attendant could be heard saying: “You’re going to call the police on me? Okay.”

The traveler who captured the encounter claimed the yellow-shirt-wearing man’s freak-out got him booted from the flight.

While the clip doesn’t show the man being told he has to get off the plane, it does show an employee in a high-vis vest asking his travel companion if she plans to stay on the flight.

“No I’m going with him,” the woman could be heard saying.

The man at the center of the drama then stood up and removed two bags from the storage bin above his seat.  

“Ironically, he had like 4 big bags on the overhead bins,” the person who posted the video claimed.


The person who uploaded the video claimed the man had four big bags in the overhead bins himself.

“I left out the horrendous racist comments he made to the gentleman who put his luggage in the overhead bin.”

It wasn’t immediately clear when the video was filmed, or where.

American Airlines didn’t immediately respond to The Post on Friday.
