Ashley Brewer's TikTok of a flight attendant fight went viral. Here's what the airline did
Everyone complains about airline drama these days, but Ashley Brewer's complaint is getting something done.
Brewer, the LA-based ESPN “SportsCenter” anchor who grew up in Arizona, was on her way to Houston to visit her fiancé, Frank Kaminsky, the former Phoenix Suns player who is now with the Houston Rockets, when her SkyWest flight from LA was delayed.
Nothing unusual about that — have you flown anywhere lately? — but the reason was a little strange.
“Guys. My flight can’t take off 2 flight attendants got in a fight and are now REFUSING to work together,” Brewer tweeted. “Now delayed. We're sitting here waiting for them to talk it out, but nope! Lady won't budge.”
She made a TikTok video of the incident, which garnered more than 70,000 views.

In another TikTok video Brewer said a woman sitting next to her in first class wanted to switch seats with someone in coach so that she could sit next to her husband. A male flight attendant OK’d the switch, but a female flight attendant nixed it.
Though the passenger was OK with not switching, the flight attendants got into an argument, with the male flight attendant shouting at the female attendant, Brewer observed. The female attendant began crying. Eventually, as passengers waited, they were both replaced by other flight attendants. Thus the delay.
Brewer has since deleted the tweets and the TikTok videos. She declined to comment.
SkyWest did comment, however, issuing a statement after a request for comment, saying that the incident is under investigation.
“SkyWest is aware of reports regarding a flight attendant issue that caused flight 4860, operating as American Eagle from Los Angeles to Houston, to be delayed on Saturday," the statement says. "We regret the delay this caused for our passengers and apologize for any inconvenience. We hold all our employees to the highest standards of professionalism and are conducting an internal investigation related to this flight.”
Great. Now can Brewer take on ticket prices?
