Do not piss off US Airways flight attendant Tonialla G. Certainly do not think about snapping a picture of her name tag, because she will have you booted off that plane so quick, and apparently US Airways will comply.
Miami photographer Sandy DeWitt claims she was kicked off a Miami-bound flight from Philadelphia for merely snapping the attendant's name tag on her iPhone. Though the airline says there is more to the story.
According to Carlos Miller at Pixiq
, DeWitt noticed Tonialla being rude to passengers in the boarding area, so she took out her iPhone to snap a picture of her name tag and planned to report her latter to US Airways.
"Once onboard, she was using foul and explicit language," Lehmachertold MSNBC
. "She was removed at the request of the captain."
