Pilot removed from flight out of Austin

Passengers said the pilot seemed unstable

A hysterical pilot dressed in civilian clothing took over an intercom on a San Francisco bound-flight and starting ranting about politics and her divorce, according to a report.

She then left the plane, which was preparing to take-off from an airport in Austin, Texas.

A United Airlines pilot was taken off a flight after using the intercom as a megaphone to sound off about Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton and her pending divorce.

At that point, about 20 passengers got off the plane because they felt uncomfortable.

United Airlines did not immediately reply to The Washington Post's questions about the incident: who the pilot was, whether she would have been allowed to fly had her passengers not fled, and whether she had been disciplined.

The flight eventually took off but was delayed for more than two hours.

The odd behavior continued when the pilot began speaking over the aircraft's intercom, sharing that she was going through a divorce and turning the talk to politics.

He said that at first the woman seemed friendly but then she pointed out an interracial couple in first class.

On passenger told NBC Bay Area, "I talked to her and hugged her because she was having a nervous breakdown".

He wrote, "I kid u not, her parting words: 'We should be on show together".

The weirdness didn't end when the pilot got off the plane, though.

In a statement United said: "We hold our employees to the highest standards and have replaced this pilot with a new one to operate the flight, which has since departed from Austin".

As one passenger walks out, the pilot scolds another and asks, "Did I purposefully offend you?"

"We brought in a new crew and they operated that flight".

'We apologize to our customers for the inconvenience'.
