QUEENS (PIX11) — A man was kicked off a flight at LaGuardia airport Wednesday after having a tantrum over airline workers wishing him a merry Christmas.

Apparently it all started at the gate when the grumpy passenger received his first holiday greeting. Then, once on the plane, a flight attendant wished him a “Merry Christmas.”

That’s when the man lost it, and threw a fit. It is unclear why he became so upset.

The crew tried to calm him down, but he refused to back down. He was then removed from the plane while other passengers cheered and applauded.
