American Airlines passenger behind ‘not real’ viral tirade that delayed travelers for hours has been identified as marketing executive, Tiffany Gomas. But, who is she?

Somewhere around July 2023, the internet was taken over by a woman on a plane.

This all started with a TikTok video of a woman freaking out on a plane. A clip of this was uploaded on TikTok and has since spread all across the internet.

The woman in question is obviously freaked out and trying to get off the plane, while screaming how “that motherf*cker back there is not real” and how she doesn’t intend to “die with him”.

This sounded scary to say the least, but apparently nothing really happened with that plane and people wondered what/who made her panic like that.

Her stir generated turned into a meme, with people giving funny answers as to who the woman was referring to.

The woman behind this viral trend that generated thousands of reactions online has been revealed as Tiffany Gomas, a marketing executive.

Who is Tiffany Gomas?

Tiffany Gomas is a Texas marketing executive who went viral following a video of her causing a massive stir while being a passenger on an American Airlines flight from Dallas Fort Worth to Orlando.

She was born between 1984 and 1985 and is a 38-year-old woman.

Her bizarre outburst on the plane which shocked a lot of the passengers led to at least an hour delay before the plane took off.

Public records show Gomas is a Dallas native who lives in a $2 million home in the city’s coveted Lakewood neighborhood.

She is a marketing executive who served as vice president of Elevate Brand Marketing, where she was named a “rising star” in 2017 by a trade publication.

“Tiffany has built a sales portfolio and track record that rivals account managers with decades in the business,” co-worker Dave Sedlin told the outlet.

The Oklahoma State University graduate advised young people starting in her industry to “roll with the punches” and “work hard and play hard,” in the accompanying profile.

What actually happened in the plane? Police speaks on the incident.

The woman behind the epic airplane meltdown where she proclaimed “that motherf—r back there is not real” to bemused fellow passengers told cops the rant was sparked by an argument over wireless headphones.

Tiffany Gomas was kicked off the plane following her bizarre outburst which led to hours of delays for other passengers, documents reviewed by The Post show.

Despite claiming “I’m getting the f—k off, and there’s a reason why I’m getting the f—k off” in the viral video of her storming up and down the plane aisle, the 38-year-old was not willing to leave the American Airlines flight and had to be removed by staff, according the police documents.

Before heading toward the front of the plane, Gomas added in her address to passengers: “You can sit on this plane and you can f—ing die with them or not. I’m not going to.”

The argument had started when Gomas fell out with relatives she was traveling with, accusing them of stealing her AirPods, the cops said.

“The female then started claiming the aircraft was not safe and did not want the aircraft to leave due to her believing it would not make it to its destination,” the July 2 complaint reads.

“Due to the statements the flight attendants felt the aircraft needed to be rescreened. [The airline manager] explained that the passenger was denied boarding and they wanted her escorted to the public side.”

All the other passengers on Flight 1009 from Fort Worth to Orlando were then made to deplane so they could be screened through security again as a precaution because of the the nature of Gomas’ complaints.

“TSA personnel arrived at the scene to conduct a full rescreening of the aircraft,” the paperwork revealed.

By the time officers arrived at the gate, Gomas was “distraught” and trying to get back onto the plane. When Dallas-Fort Worth Department of Public Safety cops tried to speak to Gomas, she refused.

“[The airline manager] gave Gomes a verbal criminal trespass notice, explaining she was denied boarding and needed to depart the secure area,” investigators noted.

The rejected passenger was eventually escorted to the non-secure area of the airport, but that didn’t stop her from attempting to come back through TSA screening and into the boarding area multiple times, the documents say.

Police eventually tracked Gomas down to the terminal curb, where she was sitting and waiting for an Uber.

She was given a ticket for criminal trespass notice which she refused to sign. Gomas did not show police her ID, the complaint states. She was never formally arrested or taken into custody. Through a representative, Gomas declined to give comment on the incident to The Post.

Although her reputation has taken a hit, at least legally Gomas is likely in the clear.

“The viral video if the stunning part of it, but I doubt you’re going to see some big prosecution over it,” Austin Attorney Adam Loewy told The Post.
