  • An American Airlines passenger gained overnight infamy for her viral “not real” rant in July.
  • Police video obtained by the New York Post offers a glimpse into what happened after she deboarded.

Police bodycam footage obtained by the New York Post offers a glimpse into what happened after an American Airlines passenger — known for the viral “not real” video — was removed from the flight.

The woman, who’s since been identified as Texas marketing executive Tiffany Gomas, is seen in the original TikTok video yelling and pointing toward the back of the plane.

“I’m getting the fuck off, and there’s a reason why I’m getting the fuck off,” she said. “But I am telling you right now, that motherfucker back there is not real.”

‘Do not let that flight leave’

The newly released footage shows Gomas standing in the boarding area with police and employees. Gomas is seen staring at the plane scheduled to depart from Dallas to Orlando on July 2. She repeatedly states that the flight won’t arrive in Orlando, a claim she began while on the plane.

“I don’t care if I never fly with y’all every again,” Gomas says in the footage. “I just want to know what happens to this flight here.”


A police officer repeatedly tells Gomas she’ll need to leave, otherwise, she’ll be “under arrest for public trespass” in the footage. Gomas, however, remains adamant about keeping the flight grounded.

“Do not let that flight leave. I’m being dead serious. Do not let that flight leave,” she says as they attempt to escort her away from the terminal. “That flight is not going to make it to Orlando. It’s not going to.”

As she’s walking through the terminal ahead of the officers, Gomas asks if she can leave instead of being escorted.

“Y’all need to escort me out…really,” Gomas said. “Until you see this flight fucking blow up.”

Gomas and the Dallas-Fort Worth Airport Department of Public Safety did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment, made outside regular working hours.


Gomas reportedly snuck back through security

After being escorted out of the boarding area, according to police documents viewed by Fox Business, Gomas repeatedly attempted to sneak back through security — and succeeded once.

“At 1845 hours, Communications advised GOMAS had gone through the TSA Checkpoint at A12 and had made her way to the secured side of the terminal,” according to the documents, per Fox Business News. “An Americans Airlines manager … informed us that even though GOMAS’ ticket had been revoked, and she was denied boarding, TSA’s system still recognized her ticket as valid.”

The New York Post reported the entire incident was sparked by an altercation between Gomas and the relatives she was traveling with, when Gomas reportedly accused them of stealing her AirPods.

The New York Post reported that Gomas was given a criminal-trespass notice for disrupting the flight but wasn’t taken into police custody.

Gomas said being identified has had an immediate impact

After being identified by the Post as the woman in the video, Gomas told the Daily Mail the fallout has been “frightening.”


“My life has been blown up. It’s frightening. Things go viral and everything changes,” Gomas told the outlet.

Gomas is a Dallas-based marketing exec who owns Uppercut Marketing, the Daily Mail reported. She told the outlet people had staked out her house and gone through her mail, but she didn’t specify who was doing so. She also said that she’s consulting a lawyer.
