He said, 'I will not help you until you delete the video.'"

Filming is even allowed at the security checkpoints, according to the Transportation Security Administration, "as long as the screening process is not interfered with or sensitive information is not revealed." Restrictions include filming of equipment monitors that are shielded from public view.His video showed the aftermath of the incident: Less than two weeks ago, a 69-year-old doctor, David Dao, was hospitalised after Chicago aviation police dragged him from a United Airlines plane sparking international outrage and a public relations nightmare for the carrier.American Airlines was investigating Friday's incident, which happened on Flight 591 from San Francisco to Dallas before the plane took off, Leslie Scott, an airline spokeswoman said.The two then confront each other in the aisle of the plane and the employee can be heard challenging the passenger to hit him.The passenger eventually returns to his seat and the flight attendant leaves the plane.
