A female operations agent was “verbally and physically” assaulted by a female passenger when a flight from Dallas to La Guardia Airport in New York City was to board, Southwest told CNN in an email. The employee was transported to a local hospital and released Saturday night, according to the email. She is home and resting, the airline said.
“Southwest Airlines maintains a zero-tolerance policy regarding any harassment or assault and fully supports our employee when cooperating with local authorities regarding this unacceptable incident,” the email said.
Southwest said the passenger was arrested by local law enforcement. CNN has contacted the Dallas Police Department for more information, but has not heard back.
The incidents have ranged from yelling to saliva and physical quarrels with the airline staff.
