After nearly an hour of listening to a baby crying, an enraged passenger exploded on a flight.
The viral incident occurred on a Southwest Airlines trip to Florida and was published on TikTok with the overlay text “Stuck in a holding pattern for weather and an SWA passenger loses his mind over a baby.”
The video shows a man, who is not recognized in the movie, yelling profanities at flight attendants and fellow passengers in response to an infant wailing.
“That child was crying for 40 minutes!” “I was sleeping with my headphones on,” the agitated man yelled at the personnel who were attempting to calm him down.

At one point, it appears that one of the flight crew members had had enough and shouted to the agitated father, “You’re yelling,” to which he replied, “So is the baby!”
He even yelled at the baby during his rant, “Did that motherf***er pay extra to get on?” The individual is next to him was spotted appearing uncomfortable before burying their face in their hands.
When they saw the video, social media users did not support the passenger, with many criticizing him in the comments section.
One user wrote: “How do you think the baby’s parents feel? People need to get a grip, babies are a part of life. We were all babies once.”
According to Today, a Southwest Airlines spokesperson responded to the viral video, which has 3.4 million views on Twitter, with the following statement:
“We do not have details on this flight to share but commend our flight crew for their professionalism and offer our apologies to the other customers onboard.”
