Woman Accused of Attacking Attendants on NYC Flight for Not Picking Up Her Garbage

A woman found herself in restraints for the second half of her flight to New York City on Sunday after leaving her seat and attacking a flight attendant for not picking up her garbage, a criminal complaint filed Monday detailed. The alleged assault occurred midway through an American Airlines flight from Miami to New York flight. Chenasia Campbell, 28, is accused of striking a flight attendant several times and knocking the woman to the ground.

The complaint claims Campbell followed a flight attendant down the aisle and began arguing with her after no one picked up her garbage. A second attendant intervened and attempted to physically separate the woman and the first attendant, according to the criminal complaint. That intervention escalated Campbell's actions, and that's when she allegedly punched the second flight attendant and pulled her hair. She briefing walked away and yelled at another passenger, before returning to the second attendant to yell obscenities, the complaint said.

Amid her shouting Campbell yelled, "Cops aren't going to do anything to me," and then struck the flight attendant again with closed fists. An off-duty NYPD who was aboard the plane jumped in and placed Campbell in restraints for the remaining duration of the flight. She was taken off the plane and placed into police custody once it reached its final destination at JFK Airport.

Campbell appeared via teleconference in federal court in Brooklyn Monday afternoon on federal charges of interfering with a flight crew. She was ordered released on a $15,000 bond with travel restrictions imposed. Campbell's public defender, James Darrow, stated during the hearing that his client is currently participating in a state-run mental health treatment program. Darrow declined to comment to NBC New York.

8. I'm thinking alcohol too. Someday booze will be banned on airplanes and in airports.

I grew up in the Air Force where flying in an airplane was serious business.
Lives are at stake.

7. I wonder what airline Chenasia was flying.

I got a good guess, but I didn’t see it in the article. One that I’d never fly.

11. Thank you, obviously I should go back to sleep.

But I wouldn’t fly American anywhere. I was thinking a different carrier, but not surprised.

12. She seems nice

“I was in the sky with Jesus,” said Chenasia Campbell, 28, as she left Brooklyn Federal Court after her arraignment Monday wearing a surgical mask with two holes cut out for her eyes and a sweatshirt wrapped around her head. She also denied the allegations against her.


Campbell was arrested in August 2020 for attacking a woman using a walker, a law enforcement source told the Daily News.

In that case, Campbell smacked the woman’s walker to the ground and then hit her, the source said. Campbell pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct in that case.
