Two women arrested after argument over racial slurs aboard American Airlines flight

Two Bronx women caused an American Airlines flight to divert due to their “disturbing and unacceptable” behavior — including spitting at a passenger who asked them to stop using racial slurs, according to reports.

Kelly Pichardo, 30, and Leeza Rodriguez, 29, were aboard Flight 776 from Dallas-Fort Worth to Los Angeles on Wednesday when a male passenger asked them to stop using the offensive language in conversation, CBS DFW reported.

Pichardo allegedly spat at the man, who then began recording them, said Phoenix police Sgt. Mercedes Fortune after the plane diverted to the Arizona city’s Sky Harbor International Airport.
