Sharknado and American Pie star Tara Reid and her dog were kicked off of Delta flight 613 from Los Angeles to New York JFK yesterday.
Apparently the actress was apoplectic over her seat assignment and that she didn’t have a pillow. The aircraft had already pushed back when the captain announced to the plane that they’d be returning to the gate causing a delay.
Here’s Ms. Reid being told she would need to leave — and she did so without further incident. No police were called, and she wasn’t dragged off the aircraft (had she been flying to Newark it might have been a different story, natch).
TMZ reports that she was displeased the woman in front of her had reclined — and you have to give her that since the aircraft hadn’t taken off yet, so all seats should have been in their upright position. Although it sounds like it would have been a long 5 hours and 33 minutes to New York with the actress on board. Eventually though she did manage to catch a later Delta flight.
I doubt they managed to get her onto Delta 2262 at 215 p.m. though it was delayed until 2:41 p.m. making it possible. If she did then ironically she’d have wound up landing in New York before her fellow passengers on the flight she was removed from.
