A photograph of a woman exiting an American Airlines flight has gained attention after she went on a tirade about a fellow passenger whom she claimed was “not real.” The incident, which occurred on 2 July, was captured in a viral video where the woman can be seen shouting at other passengers while standing in the aisle of the aircraft. Identified as Tiffany Gomas, a 38-year-old marketing executive from Dallas, Texas, the incident reportedly started over her missing AirPods. Gomas, who resides in a $1.6 million home in the Lakewood neighborhood of Dallas, spoke out about the incident, stating that her life has been drastically affected since the videos of her rant went viral. She expressed feeling frightened and emphasized that people should not judge others without knowing their story. Gomas claimed to have faced intense scrutiny and alleged that her house and neighbors were being surveilled, but did not provide further details. The incident prompted flight attendants to screen the aircraft again, causing all passengers to exit and go through security once more. Gomas was given a “verbal criminal trespass notice” by the airline manager and was denied boarding. However, she repeatedly tried to re-enter the boarding area and was eventually found sitting outside the terminal waiting for an Uber. The documents reviewed by The New York Post revealed that Gomas was issued a ticket for criminal trespass notice, but she refused to sign it and did not show her ID to the police. American Airlines confirmed the incident and expressed gratitude to their customers for understanding the situation and their team members for handling it professionally. Following the incident, Gomas made her Instagram account private and took down her LinkedIn profile. The Independent has reached out to Gomas and the Dallas-Fort Worth Department of Public Safety office for comments..
