A woman was angry about a crying baby on an airplane. She would not sit down next to the crying baby. She was rude to the baby's mother. The mother was flying home with her eight-month-old son. It was a short flight. The woman wouldn't sit down. The plane was full, so she could not change her seat.

The mother put a video of the angry woman on Facebook. In the video, the woman shouts: "I'm not sitting next to a crying baby." She would not be calm. Cabin crew asked the woman to get off the airplane. She told the cabin crew they would lose their jobs. The mother wrote: "This lady...now she has no way home today."
