American Airlines is having a United moment

An American Airlines flight attendant challenged a passenger to fight him, after the man threatened to hit the attendant, according to a new video that surfaced late Friday night. The flight was traveling from San Francisco to Dallas when the two men almost started fighting before the flight took off.

Flight club: A woman, who was traveling with her baby, wanted to keep her stroller on the flight with her. An AA crew member allegedly "violently" took the stroller from her, "hitting her and just missing the baby," per Surain Adyanthaya, the passenger who recorded the video and put it on social media. A male passenger can be seen getting up from his seat to defend the woman, telling the flight attendant "You do that to me and I'll knock you flat." The flight attendant challenges the man to actually hit him, before the two are separated.
