According to another passenger on the flight, she had vomited in the aisle and then was told she had to reveal all her recent travel and remain in the bathroom for the remaining 45 minutes of the trip. The woman's carry-on luggage was wrapped in plastic. "If I had puked on the plane, would they have they done that to me? I'm a 60-year-old white woman with gray hair. No, they would not have," said the witness, a University of Texas professor.
