repeatedly punched by an angry passenger after she reclined has spoken out about the incident which meant she "flew forward" through the force of the hits. Wendi Williams, who was flying with American Airlines from New Orleans to Charlotte, has now said that the flight attendant should be fired. 3 The woman who had her seat punched by an angry passenger has spoken out Wendi explained that she started taking the video because the passenger was punching her seat and flight attendants weren’t doing anything to stop it. She told Fox & Friends: "I was leaving a teacher's conference and we got onto the plane and the man behind me, as soon as we got in the air, I reclined and he asked me if … I would put my seat back up while he ate, which I did. "About 10 minutes later, he was done and I put my seat back down at which point he started full-on punching the back of my seat really hard that I was flying forward." She said at that point she "was trying to get the flight attendant's attention and she wasn't responding." Wendi continued: "So all I could think to do was to video the guy and maybe I thought that would stop him. 3 The video went viral on social media after he was filmed repeatedly punching her seat "I thought, I'm just going to keep videoing this guy because nobody else was doing anything. And I thought he would completely stop but he continued throughout." She noted that the "poking" seen in the video "was nothing compared to what he was doing prior." Wendi also aimed her frustration at the flight attendant on Monday, explaining that she was asked to delete the video from her cell phone. She added: "When she finally did come around, she had an attitude with me and said, ‘What?’ "And I said, ‘The guy behind me is repeatedly hitting me’ and she went back to him, like changed personalities, and was the kindest person in the world and said, ‘Oh, are you okay? It's really tight back here. I'm sorry’ and then she said to me, ‘Delete the video’ and I thought, ‘Why would I delete the video?’" 3 Wendi has said she wants the flight attendant fired since the incident Wendi reportedly said the flight attendant threatened to remove her from the aircraft if she didn’t delete the video recording and handed her a "Passenger Disturbance Notice" that warned of federal prosecution. She is now considering legal action against the airline, adding that the flight attendant should be fired. Wendi said: "The hits just kept on coming literally and figuratively. From the guy then the flight attendant. "I tried to talk to [American Airlines] via email and I sent them the video in its entirety and tried to let them know that this was not okay and they basically gave me that same statement like 'we try to train our employees to do X, Y and Z' and that clearly didn't happen." American Airlines released a statement, saying: "We are aware of a customer dispute that transpired on American Eagle flight 4392, operated by Republic Airways on January 31. "The safety and comfort of our customers and team members is our top priority and our team is looking into the issue."

No but the man needed you to punch him between the eyes and say i dare you to do it again The flight attendant is attending to an unruly lady guest. Fire her for doing her duty? Stupid. I 100% support the guy tbh. Its inconsiderate to recline without asking if the person behind minds or not. And its unfair on someone at the back because they cant recline

Thats the 'i wanna speak to the manager' look right there. What a Drama Queen! 🤣 I got told off severely by AA staff for moving my knees which rocked the reclined seat in front of me, I was scared to move after that! Oh piss off and get a life. 🙄 As a proud tall man I find it annoying when folk recline back into me. That said I respect that the seat is designed to recline and that the passenger has the right to do it. Think the guy pushing the seat is a bully and glad he’s being pulled up for his behavior.

Nothing but trouble! Watch out for her! Nobody should recline all the way it’s horrible someone’s head in your face why should anyone have their space invaded I would go mad also selfish woman sleep at home or cat nap sitting up selfish ?'?

Yet another crap story from the sun bullying people, why don’t you actually find some news for a change Were you annoying to the passenger by placing your seat that was uncomfortable for him don’t think you thought of that Oh get a life U have a mouth why did u not ask the clown 🤡 what does he think he’s playing at 🤔

Enjoy your fame. Milk it as much as possible. I wouldn't be surprised if she does something like this again. Is her name Judy AmericanAirlines Bit harsh Both of them are wrong. airnzuk have the right attitude. They tell passengers to righten their seats when it is time to eat and the passengers comply. Yes I am sick of passengers reclining their seats on me - but he is also out of order.

Who gives a shit. Nobody died.

Airline boss says passengers should ask before they recline‘Customers have the right to recline,’ says Delta Air Lines chief The dude in the back should be curb stomped is the correct answer. 'Do you mind if I crush your legs?' Nope...The airlines should stop treating us like cattle. I think any airline that offered a plane with more room, would make a fortune.

Has she actually seen what she posted in the video......I cant see anyone being annoying except this blonde (fake) attention seeker Clearly this game seeker wants 50 mins rather than 15 mins of fame. I just hope she is never on one of my flights.....never mind q punch, she deserves rejection at 30,000ft

The airline shouldn’t have the option if they don’t want people to use it It wasnt punching the seat now was it? If you want to be annoying with your seat back, then what's stopping him being annoying. Yeah you can have it down, but he is allowed to do what he wants in his space. Dont like it. Put ur seat up.

Why stop there, the Airline should be closed
