After going against the guidelines, a woman was asked to deboard a Spirit Airlines flight bound for Florida.

The 31-year-old went on to say that when she contacted the flight crew to report about the woman, Majdalawi was told that she could change seats if she wanted.
Two cops can be seen aboard trying to wake up the woman who lit a cigarette inside the plane in the video footage. The officer also inquired about the woman’s bag and searched the overhead compartment.
