A shocking video has emerged showing an American Airlines employee (pictured main in a blue shirt and tie and inset) challenging a passenger (left in main) to a fight after allegedly hitting a woman with a stroller on a domestic flight.

The upsetting footage, filmed shortly before Flight 591 departed from San Francisco to Dallas on Friday afternoon, shows the airline employee goading a passenger and saying, ‘hit me’. The clip was uploaded by passenger Surain Adyanthaya, who explained he started filming after the flight attendant ‘violently took a stroller from a lady with her baby (left and right) on my flight, hitting her and just missing the baby’.

Adyanthaya went on to explain: ‘They just in-voluntarily escorted the mother and her kids off the flight and let the flight attendant back on, who tried to fight other passengers. The mom asked for an apology and the AA official declined.
