Blonde up from Y offering "special" services to F passengers!

I flew MSP-PHX yesterday and scored the upgrade despite being #3 on a list with 2 seats available, nice. So midway through the flight, a girl with long curly blonde hair, maybe about 25-ish (30-ish?), with lots of lip gloss and perfume shows up in F and asks the guys behind me if they'd like to have a little extra services! I had my headphones on so didn't catch to whole proposition, but the FA's quickly stepped in and told her to get back to her seat and they'd talk to her there...she started to raise her voice about how these were her friends, lol, they guys were like, uh, no...and she was escorted back to her seat after some commotion. She sat there with two open seats next to her, guess nobody wanted to sit next to her. The FA was like, well, she didn't smell like alcohol, and I was like, dude, that isn't alcohol fueling that mess! FA's all huddled in the back, oh, we should have seen her getting on the plane but we were in a hurry due to late arriving aircraft...but honestly who would expect a passenger to do that! There didn't seem to be an air marshall on board, and police met the plane at PHX...but despite announcing otherwise, they let us de-plane before they took her into custody...(or just talked to her, I didn't stick around).


During the last 1.5 hours of the flight, they were talking about diverting the flight for the bimbo...which would have been a huge over-reaction, as improper as her offer may have been. Well, nobody lost their heads and nobody gave any, so we just landed in PHX a little behind schedule!

Anyway, someone else on the flight might be able to fill in more details or correct missing elements to the story, the FA was a cool dude, and he saw my flyertalk tags and asked if I'd be posting something, so maybe he can share more details..?

I sense yet another buy-up opportunity to be offered at check-in.

Yeah, I meant to snap a pic when they led her off the plane, but then we de-planed first. I did make the reconnaissance mission back to Y, um, just to look right! LOL and had a good laugh with the FA's in the back of the plane asking them if anyone had change for $100. LOL

What a bummer. Stuff like that never happens on my flights, and I would have welcomed "special services". What was that old commercial, "Delta is ready when you are."

Or perhaps a new unannounced SkyPriority benefit?
