The woman who caused a commotion on an American Airlines flight by claiming that another passenger was “not real” has spoken out about the incident for the first time. The incident occurred on 2 July and a video of the woman’s outburst went viral. In the video, she can be heard shouting as she walks up the aisle of the plane, stating that she is getting off the plane for a reason and that the person she is referring to is not real. The woman has been identified as Tiffany Gomas, a 38-year-old marketing executive from Dallas, Texas. The incident reportedly began because Gomas couldn’t find her AirPods.
Gomas has now given her side of the story and revealed that her life has been turned upside down since the video of her rant went viral.

However, she repeatedly tried to reenter the boarding area before eventually waiting for an Uber outside the terminal. Gomas was given a ticket for criminal trespass but was not formally arrested.
