After the video went viral on the internet, Emirates in a statement said that the woman arrived too late to check in for her flight and also tried to use an expired passport for her travel. "We can confirm that on November 1, an incident occurred at the check-in counter at Mexico City International Airport, in which a passenger who arrived late at the check-in counter was also discovered to be traveling with an expired passport," Emirates said in a statement, adding, "The client was denied the trip, and she became rebellious and physically abusive with the ground staff — so it was necessary for airport security and police to intervene." It is also not clear which flight she was attempting to travel on.

Earlier, a Ryanair flight was forced to make an emergency landing after an intoxicated man reportedly urinated on an aircraft seat. Authorities removed the unruly passenger from the aircraft after it touched down in Porto Santo, and the flight then carried on to Tenerife. Despite the inconvenience, the customers applauded Ryanair's cabin crew for the way they handled the situation.
