By the way, an FA absolutely cannot kick you off a flight. You don't even know what you are scared of here. The captain was brought into this and the FA clearly lost, and ended up having to sit in the galley for the whole flight while someone else did her job. Undoubtedly the captain ended up filing an incident report over this. If this ended poorly for someone, it was the FA.

As for the GA situation... no, they cannot cancel your ticket and tell you to contact AA for a refund. Again, you don't even know what you are scared of here.
Yes by all means a FA can request to have you removed and it’s up to the GA. I’ve seen It occur several times. You should not assume the GA or even the Captain will take your side even if your are in the right. And yes the GA can deny you flying. As I said most of the time the GA will reaccomodate you while you “cool down” but give him/her guff and the repercussions might not be good.

This has nothing to do with standing up for yourself. This has everything to do with complying with crew member instructions even if they seem outrageous.
