Arianna Huffington Refuses To Turn Off Her Blackberry On Airplane, Gets Into Fight With Passenger!

huffington post founder gets into airplane dramz

Maybe this is why all the birds are dying…

On a recent United Express flight from Washington Dulles to New York, Arianna Huffington reportedly refused to turn off her BlackBerry.

53-year-old passenger Ellis Belodoff didn't appreciate Miss Huffington's divatude, and he reportedly confronted her and said the following:

"Hey, lady! Don't you speak English?"

Looks like the tables turned though, because the passenger broke the rules himself by getting out of his seat against flight crew instructions, and Port Authority Police of NY and NJ were alerted when the plane landed.

Here's what Port Authority spokeswoman Jen Friedberg had to say about it:

"The crew did alert our police when it looked like there was a fight brewing, but by the time they landed our police just spoke to them."

Apparently nobody got into trouble, but the two trouble-making passengers were given "a talking-to." LOLs.

    she is simply a typical liberal

    It isn't illegal to have your BB on, as long as it is in "airplane mode". If she was breaking the rules, the attendants would have said something to her…not some random passenger. The guy sounds like he has a chip on his shoulder. Especially the comment about English. What a psycho!

    this sounds like a case of someone getting annoyed with having to hear someone yapping on their phone. probably nothing to do with faa rules. let's all have a little consideration for others when trapped in tight spaces

    What is it with these leftest Liberal elitest progressives, who think they are above the law and do not have to follow the rules like the peasants. First we had good old Senator Chuck Schumer who cursed at a flight attendent because she told him to turn off his Blackberry and now we have George Soros's little lap dog, Arianna Huffington the founder of the Huffington Post-the most leftest piece of media propaganda available in today's media market.

    Arianna is risking the lives of herself and fellow passengers. Blackberries that are on interview with the plane's instruments and radar. SHE should have been charged. The other person should have stayed in his seat and quietly reported her to the flight attendant. BOTH are guilty of bad behavior.

    LMAO. Perez why are you editing my comments?



  13. 13

    This story is two days old…and her behavior is holier than thou, elitist liberal. This is the same woman who was in a faux marriage with a gay politician for years. FAKE.

    Blackberry has a special safe feature. 'Many Blackberry users understand their phones can be used during a flight as long as the airplane has ascended more than 10,000 feet in the air and provided that the phone is set to a special airplane mode. It’s not surprising that consumers, flight attendants and even law enforcement officials aren’t sure as to whether or not certain Blackberry applications can be used during a flight even when no voice or data signals are being transmitted.' -LauraMS, Brighthub
