The woman also screamed that she’s homeless and has a gun before grabbing her bag and walking away.
“I have a gun on me because I’m homeless,” she says, “get me out.”
The JetBlue staffer is seen talking on the phone and doesn’t respond to the woman.
Passengers waiting at the gate could be heard asking about what she said or if she had a gun. The woman then walks off.
