Passenger Kicked Off JetBlue After Seat Argument

A passenger was ejected from a JetBlue flight in New York after he tried to switch seats and then became angry when he was told he couldn't. His hissy fit delayed 126 other passengers by nearly three hours.

The incident happened at John F. Kennedy International Airport, on a flight to Tampa.

The unidentified passenger moved to an unassigned seat as the Airbus 320 was set to depart, and that set off an argument with a flight attendant, according to law enforcement officials.
