Jeanie Daniels Jailed After Painting Nails, Cursing On Southwest Plane

Posted: Updated:

Jeanie Daniels' story should serve as a warning to potential travelers: Never curse at a flight attendant and always paint your nails before boarding.

KTRK reports that the Burbank, Calif., resident was told by a flight attendant to stop painting her nails because of the polish's smell. With only a couple fingernails left, Daniels decided to finish the job in the bathroom, so as not to offend anyone's nasal cavities.

But upon exiting the lavatory, Daniels told the station she was confronted by a flight attendant. After she cursed during the ensuing altercation, Daniels found police officers waiting for her when she landed in Houston.

She was handcuffed and detained for ten hours until a judge dismissed later the charge of "abusive profane language."

In response to the incident, Southwest Airlines released the following statement to KCAL:

“The Customer in question was taken into custody upon arrival in Houston for behavior she displayed while onboard a flight from LAS – HOU on Feb 26th. The airport police became involved because of the passenger’s behavior and a verbal altercation with a Southwest Airlines crew member. Southwest Airlines is responsible for the safety of all of our passengers and Employees.”

So how bad is the smell of nail polish on a plane? A CNN commenter claiming to be a flight attendant wrote that only the peeling of a hardboiled egg is comparable to the stench.
