Man snaps at parents because baby was ‘crying for 45 minutes’ on plane
By Callum Boyle
The whole thing was caught on camera.
One man has come under fire after losing his temper with a couple because their baby was crying for '45 minutes' during a flight to Florida.
The man's outburst was caught on camera and has since gone viral on social media.
In the video, the man can be seen abusing other passengers on the plane as well as the flight attendants on board, swearing more than 20 times across the four-minute clip.
It appeared that one of the flight crew had lost their patience with the passenger, saying: “You’re yelling,” to which he replied: “So is the baby.”
He was also heard bellowing: “did that motherf**ker pay extra to get on?”

A large number of people on social media disagreed with the passenger’s behaviour and criticised him.
“What does he expect to be done?? Does he expect the crew to throw the baby out the window?” said one user.
Another wrote: “You’re on a public flight and if he doesn’t like it then fly private. Trust me when I say, us mums are mortified when babies cry on planes.”
A third added: “What did he expect to happen? Duct tape the baby’s mouth?”
At the end of the video, the passenger can be seen being spoken to by police and airline staff while a representative for TODAY.com said: “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.”
