‘Drunk or stoned’: United issues apology and refunds after passengers complain of abusive flight attendant

A recent flight operated by a regional United Airlines carrier was reportedly marred by the erratic and threatening behavior of an intoxicated flight attendant, according to passengers aboard the jet bound for Williston, North Dakota.

According to KPRC, one passenger shared photos of the employee accused of inappropriate behavior beginning shortly after boarding the Trans States Airlines jet in Denver.

“Thanks, United, for a terrifying flight!” tweeted Erika Gorman. “Drunk or stoned stewardess endangered everybody’s lives.”

The passenger went on to say she had to “go to the cockpit and call the pilot” to inform staff of the flight attendant’s disturbance.

“The cops and an ambulance were waiting for her when we landed,” Gorman wrote.

Reports indicate the woman was not arrested upon arrival

In another tweet, the passenger described in detail some of the offensive language and actions she said the airline employee exhibited.

“If your seatbelt isn’t tight, you f—ed up,” the flight attendant wrote, according to Gorman.

The airline offered an apology and compensation to those aboard the flight as “a gesture of goodwill,” according to a statement released this week.

“The safety of our customers and crew aboard all united and trans states flights is a top priority,” the company wrote.

Williston police did not immediately respond to reporter’s requests for comment.

Trans State Airlines released its own statement acknowledging their awareness of the complaints.

“The situation is under investigation and the flight attendant is being held out of service,” the company wrote.
