Ikechukwu Nnaemeka said:
"This kind of commendation will boost her moral and make her do better next time. Good job."
Abdulmalik Salihu Muye said:
"Praising her for what she's been trained to do and for what's actually her job... My job is to push wheelbarrow and I push it really well despite the weather conditions, Where is my praise?"
Okeke Christopher Okwudili said:
"Confirm it's true, I witnessed it cos I was on the plane this morning honestly she really tried.. she deserves some accolades."
It was gathered that a lady onboard an Air Peace flight asked that the plane be stopped for her to leave because she did not want her expensive handbag placed on the floor or put in the upper cabinet.
The actress who witnessed the situation said that the plane had to make a U-turn as security officials escorted the erring passenger out of the plane.
