On April 18, Delta Airlines ejected a Man for going to the restroom right before takeoff. The passenger, Kimi Hamilton, urgently needed to use the restroom but a flight attendant instructed him to stay in his seat because the plane would lose its place in line for takeoff. Hamilton really had to go so he quickly went to the restroom anyway.

This was the time when the pilot asked Hamilton to leave the flight.

Airlines’ strict policies

In a written statement by Delta Airlines on Wednesday, the company said, “Our flight crews are extensively trained to ensure the safety and security of all customers.

It is imperative that passengers comply with crew instructions during all phases of flight, especially at the critical points of takeoff and landing,” reported by USA Today.

Everyone on that flight was asked to exit the plane after Hamilton refused to do so. Moments later, all passengers were allowed to re-enter the plane except for Hamilton.

A passenger named Krista Rosolino, who was on the same flight and has recorded the incident on video, thinks it was an outrage for a passenger to be kicked off a plane for going to the bathroom. She defended Hamilton on social media.

A passenger from a different Delta flight informed Rosolino that two passengers from their flight needed to use the bathroom while the plane was prepared to taxi.

However, flight attendants on that flight simply told the pilots to wait for those passengers to finish.

The ejected passenger

Hamilton is a 39-year-old African-American disc jockey from Milwaukee. He needed to get home the following morning for a scheduled field trip. He remained calm both on the plane and at the terminal when he was being questioned.

There were FBI agents waiting for him when he exited the plane.

Delta gave Hamilton a refund for his paid tickets but left him to find his way home on his own. Delta employees informed him that his checked luggage would be waiting for him in Milwaukee.

Dramas on the planes

There have been several incidents that occurred on flights that were captured on video and went viral for the past few weeks.

Earlier this month, a passenger was dragged from a United Airlines flight to Chicago when he refused to give up his seat for airline staff.

On Friday, a fight between an American Airlines employee and a passenger almost erupted after the flight attendant pulled a stroller from a passenger and her baby.
