The dramatic incident unfolded at Charlotte Douglas Airport in North Carolina. A visibly frustrated Dustin Miller was caught on camera yelling at both the American Airlines staff and other passengers. This all happened while boarding for a plane heading to Fort Lauderdale.

He voiced his agitation to be home with his dogs

The disruption was instigated by a delayed plane so the couple wouldn't arrive home at the anticipated time. Their cherished dogs were anticipating their return. One of the passengers walked about the airport, loudly voicing his dissatisfaction and gesturing wildly.

The man's husband tried to soothe him but to no avail. Miller frequently mentioned the names of their dogs, Shelby and Dolly, whom he sincerely missed. The passenger wanted to get home as swiftly as possible to be with them.

"I just want to be home, to be with the girls. Don't you care about the girls? Remember them!" can be heard in the video shared online.

The passenger verbally abused a disabled passenger

A woman in a wheelchair intervened in the passenger's irate display, imploring him to calm down and move away. However, he responded with indignity and shouted at her. He crudely demanded the disabled woman to "get away from me."

Internet users commented with phrases like, "That's what happens when you drink at the airport", and "Someone here should take a Xanax before the flight." Another remarked, "I want to know what happened next." Interestingly, someone else agreed with the couple, saying, "But I support them. Screw American Airlines!"

Despite numerous inquiries from internet users, American Airlines has yet to comment on the situation.
