Passenger live-tweets awkward breakup during flight delay

Plane Breakup Tweets

Generally, flight delays are boring inconveniences. This was not the case for Twitter user Kelly Keegs, who witnessed and documented the awkward breakup between two fellow passengers while awaiting takeoff.

Kelly first noticed the drama when a young woman across the aisle from her started sobbing. Kelly later told Barstool Sports that “the two were SO drunk, came on the plane and I just thought they were loud and annoying at first but then she SHRIEKED and started crying loud enough to capture the attention of everyone in the front of the plane.”

Figuring they got what was coming, Kelly eavesdropped expertly on the subsequent conversation. Here are the chronological highlights, with emphasis added by Kelly:

Guy: Is this really a surprise? Are you seriously surprised at this information?

Girl: Great. JUST GREAT. I’m so glad I paid 40 extra dollars to be on this f*cking flight with you.

Guy: I don’t care.

Girl: I’M GLAD YOU DONT CARE….IT’S JUST SO MEAN. DO I DESERVE THIS? WHY ARE YOU BRINGING THIS UP? I don’t want to be this girl. I don’t want to be her. I want to be my best for you and YOU WONT LET ME….Is that what you’re starting to do with me? Just slow fade me OUT? Just like the others?


Girl: You don’t even understand why I’m F*CKING SAD. YOU HATE EVERYTHING ABOUT ME….Why is this so easy for you? It’s just THAT F*CKING EASY? What do you want from me?

Guy: You need to calm down.

Girl: To me I just really thought, you know, this was going to go somewhere. **loud sobs**


Girl: Well what makes you so F*CKING SPECIAL? You should probably just stop talking. Just stop TALKING!! I’m going to ask Charlotte. I’m going to ask her the minute we get home and we’ll see if your STORIES MATCH.

Guy: I can’t discuss this anymore.

Girl: So I’m not worth your time???? **silent sobs, lots of sniffling**


Then came a major plot twist! To the surprise of Kelly and everyone following the #PlaneBreakup on Twitter, the couple started making out! (Even though it doesn’t sound like all was forgiven.)


By the time the plane landed, Kelly said her phone was blowing up with notifications from approximately 7,000 new Twitter followers.

There’s no word on the identities of the #PlaneBreakup pair.

    So these idiots can get absolutely smashed and act like idiots on a plane… but if someone came stoned they’d have the TSA all over them. How were they even able to board the plane drunk, and how the hell were they able to order more booze?

    How is weed and other sedating drugs villified but this is okay? If alcohol was invented in the 80’s can you imagine how illegal and taboo it would be? It would be up there with f*cking hroin,

    • Mimi

      Thank you! If they were high they’d have been chilled out to care that they were breaking up. That’s actually bs, but seriously. Why was it OK for them to get smashed, board the plane, and then order more alcohol?

    • Bruja

      Yeah, I’m not getting the whole drunk, and drinking more.. no, served, more liquor on the plane thing.

      They’d cut you off, if they even let you board 3 sheets to the wind in the first place, but they surely aren’t going to serve more alcohol to people causing a scene.

      I think Kelly is fully of that new poo flavored Japanese curry just posted about.

      • Regina

        LOL the curry.

    I think the woman that “tweeted” it and posted a picture is awful. It’s one thing to eavesdrop and tell your friends or spouse or something but why do you need to put it on social media? For attention? The picture was really too far. But I have a major pet peeve of people taking photos of others without their knowledge. I just don’t think it’s ok. This girl probably dodged a bullet though. Who breaks up with someone on a plane?

    • Myndee

      A part of me wonders if this was all staged. It seems too out there to be true

      • Brandy Nicole

        First thought of mine.

        • Myndee

          And now, everything comes out a week or month later that it was all a stunt. So I have a hard time believing anything is real anymore.

    • Guest

      I second that!

    • MsAwesomePants

      Taking photos without people’s knowledge or consent really bothers me, too. It’s always done to humiliate the person.

    • Rachaele

      I don’t know. It was the couple’s decision to make a scene on a plane and air their business for everyone to hear. They obviously don’t care. Social media was maybe too far, but That’s the chance you take now days. Who makes out on a plane? Haha hats off to all three

      Yeah you don’t live tweet someone else’s drama. I would have texted me friend all about it but that’s it.

  • DanaD

    Wow. I really hope the next time something awful happens to Kelly Keegs somebody laughs, chronicles the entire situation on social media, takes AND post pictures, then say it’s the best day ever. What a witch! This is what is wrong with the world. People feel the need to post everything online, even things that are extremely private and does not even concern them!

  • phephe

    I really doubt they started making out. Because she probably would have taken a picture. Creepy lady. I would be so pissed.

  • Sweet Venom

    I don’t think the girl deserves to have her breakup live tweeted. Kelly is just further proving how media focused and attention seeking everyone is these days. She’s probably ecstatic over how many followers she’s gained through simply recording someone’s intense moment. Kudos on doing nothing.

  • cookie

    Kelly is an inconsiderate little b!tch…how unbelievably rude to live-tweet their issues. Yes, they were on a plane and we’re loud enough for all to hear, but Kelly didn’t have to take pictures and share the story with the world. Karma is going to get you, Kelly.

    • Rachaele

      It’s really not that serious. It’s not like you can identify the couple in the photo. What is rude is screaming on an airplane.
