The stroller scuffle saga continues.

As we reported, a viral video began circulating on Friday which featured a mother hysterically crying while holding her baby after an American Airlines flight attendant "violently" grabbed her double-wide stroller from her as she attempted to place the object in the overhead bin — allegedly hitting the mother and narrowly missing the baby.

Other passengers on the flight were distraught by the situation, as one man even stood up to defend the sobbing mother and almost ended up in a brawl with the allegedly aggressive flight attendant.

american airline passenger speaks

Speaking out.

While American Airlines' latest controversy isn't as bad as United Airlines' Dr. David Dao scandal, it still isn't great PR for the airline. Smh.

Move Over, United — American Airlines Gets Hit With A Lawsuit Over Alleged Racist Practices!

Filed under: Legal MattersTravelViral: News

There's plenty of room in the skies for airline controversies!

American Airlines temporarily stole the spotlight from United after a pastor claimed he was blocked from a flight just because he's Korean.

TMZ reports Benny Shin filed a lawsuit against AA on Thursday, just a few hours after the injured Dr. David Dao's lawyers held a press conference announcing he would probably be filing a mega lawsuit against United.

Not the best week for airlines… or travel in general.

The 75-year-old alleges he was waiting to board a flight from Dallas to Corpus Christi in June 2016 when the gate agent refused to let him on the plane — even though he paid for his flight and had a seat assignment.

According to the documents, Shin says "5-7 white passengers behind him" were allowed on board.

While American did give him a voucher for a next day flight, Shin says the experience left him feeling humiliated, embarrassed, and scared. He plans to sue for at least $6 million.

We don't have to wonder what might have happened if the passenger refused to be re-accommodated to a later flight.

American Airlines Offering Free In-Flight Meals Again!

American Airlines is bringing back meals!

After years of letting passengers go hungry, the airline announced that everyone on select coast-to-coast flights will now be given a free meal.

Economy passengers will get their choice of four cold boxed meals, which include wraps and yogurt options (above).

Video: See Harrison Ford's Scary Plane Landing

American is actually behind on this one; Delta Airlines and United Airlines previously announced they were bringing back free in-flight meals last month.

Of course, it looks to us like about six bucks worth of food when you're dropping north of $200 on the flight, so we use the term "free" loosely.

Will this encourage YOU to fly more??

See Harrison Ford's Scary Plane Landing On The Wrong Runway & Just Barely Missing Another Plane!

Close call, Indy!

Earlier last week, Harrison Ford almost caused a serious airport accident after mistakenly landing his plane on the wrong runway.

And based on newly released video of the controversial landing, you'd think the veteran pilot was filming a stunt for an action movie.

John Wayne Airport released footage of the onscreen and offscreen pilot's mishap on Tuesday — revealing just how low over a jetliner the 74-year-old flew.

The American Airlines 737 is seen taxiing slowly in the clip, when Ford's yellow, single-engine Aviat Husky zooms right into frame, flying slow low that it casts its shadow down on the bigger aircraft.

The Star Wars actor then landed on the taxiway, which runs parallel to the runway he was cleared to land on.

The 110 passenger American Airlines Flight departed safely for Dallas a few minutes later. The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating the incident.

We're glad no one was injured, but we've got to say — that landing was more suspenseful than all of the last Indiana Jones film.

Ch-ch-check out the footage for yourself (below)!
