Woman threatens to 'kill everybody' after being caught smoking on plane

I will kill everyone on this f—ing plane’ Woman comes unhinged when she can’t smoke on flight

Curbelo attempted to smoke in the bathroom of the plane during the flight, even tampering with the smoke detector hoping to hide her action.

That passenger with the video who wished not to be identified says the woman pushed a flight attendant, and then had to be physically restrained before the remaining 30 minutes of flight to Sacramento.

The in-flight outburst started after the female passenger disabled a smoke detector aboard the flight from Portland to Sacramento, and proceeded to smoke onboard, Southwest Airlines confirmed to KOIN 6 News.

The man shooting the video says she was ordered back to her seat but began yelling irrationally, threatening to kill everyone on board and demanding that the plane land.

Law-enforcement was waiting at the gate, and arrested 24-year-old Valerie Curbelo on the spot.

When confronted by a reporter from CBS, Curbelo said she'd tried to smoke in the bathroom because she felt "anxious".

When asked why she made the threats, Curbelo responded, "I don't know".




Federal regulations prohibit smoking on an aircraft or tampering with a smoke detector, which is typically punished by a fine. The Pilots declared an emergency to receive priority handling from air traffic controllers, and our Crew handled the situation onboard until the plane landed and local authorities stepped in.

The woman was later arrested when the plane landed in Sacramento, California.

"The safety of our crew and passengers is our top priority and we take all threats seriously".

A woman threatened to kill everyone on her flight when she was prevented from smoking a cigarette. "The flight carried 136 Customers and a Crew of five".

Curbelo told CBS13 from jail that she needed to smoke because she was experiencing anxiety.

Her trip did include a detour to the Sacramento County Jail where she was booked on the charge of making criminal threats.
