New York, NY - A plane destined for Fort Lauderdale, Fla., has been held on the tarmac at New York’s LaGuardia Airport while authorities investigate a comment by a passenger.

The Port Authority says the person was removed from the plane after making a remark to another passenger that was perceived as a threat. The person was in custody.

Authorities say the plane had pushed off from a gate at around 11 a.m. Monday.

The Port Authority said around 12:15 p.m. that the Spirit Airlines flight was expected to leave shortly.

When getting on a plane, don't open your mouth. Don't say anything lest some other yutz on the plane takes it the wrong way.

S'yug l'chochma shtika!!!!

last week Tuesday evening i was scheduled to leave on a Spirit flight from La Guardia to Fort Lauderdale, Fla., at 7:50 pm, the flight was delayed due to weather conditions. We left at 9pm and landed in FL at 12am. As we were leaving the plane, the people on the other side of the aisle where I was sitting started arguing and used bad language to one another. at the time those people got to the door of the plane, the police was there and held up the entire plane for additional 15 minutes just to clarify what went on between them. So the moral of the story! just SHUT UP and you'll move quicker in life!
