The woman behind the ‘he is not real’ airplane video has been spotted flying again – before teasing she is preparing for a tell-all interview.
Tiffany Gomas, 38, first gained notoriety in July after being filmed freaking out and accusing a ‘motherf*****’ at the back of the plane of being ‘not real.’
The ‘crazy plane lady’ was caught at LAX Monday by TMZ, who asked her about the video and what it was like to be back in an airport after her July outburst.
‘Little bit of anxiety but it’s been good,’ said Gomas, who was seen wearing her now infamous hoop earrings, slicked back hair, and tank top.

In the weeks since the video was posted, Gomas has been on a mission to rehab her image as she also experienced a major uptick in social media followers.
‘One moment doesn’t define you; but it can define your purpose,’ she shared on Instagram last week with her nearly 100,000 followers.
In terms of her viral meltdown, the Texas marketing executive played coy and revealed that she could not share too many details on the incident.
‘I mean, thanks for asking that,’ she said when asked about what she saw. ‘But I have been told that I cannot comment on that right now. So, I’m sorry.’
The question asked by TMZ has prevailed among those on social media as many have wondered what exactly Gomas saw that made her flip out.
Later on in the nearly two-minute interaction, the outlet once again asked if she could at least give some insight to her outburst.

She refused but did share that something had made her uneasy and that she was committed to getting off the American Airlines flight.
‘I was distressed, I was getting off the plane no matter what, I just probably didn’t need to make the scene that I made,’ she said. ‘I was getting off that plane.’
As for when she plans to finally address the viral video and what she saw on the plane, Gomas said plans are in the works for a tell-all interview.
‘The rate it’s going, I feel like it’s going to have to happen. So yes, there will be – there’s some things in the works, mostly nonprofit charity stuff,’ she shared.
Despite that admission, the now infamous plane passenger said she has done everything she can to avoid the media in the weeks after the incident.
‘I’ve been trying to lay low for the most part but reporters wouldn’t let that happen. Like, I was somewhat strong-armed into speaking,’ she said.
In mid-August Gomas relaunched her social media career by saying her meltdown doesn’t define her alongside glammed up photos

Gomas had been flying to Florida on July 4 weekend when she decided that the plane was unsafe, loudly demanding everyone on the flight evacuate.
Official documents say she was not willing to leave the plane and had to be removed by American Airlines staff following the outburst.
After the video went viral, the Texas resident gained more than 100,000 followers on social media and launched an effort to recoup her image.
In an apology video posted in early August, Gomas referred to herself as ‘the crazy plane lady,’ which she called ‘her very worst moment.’
She continued: ‘As you know, I have been unwilling to speak on the viral video, but I do finally feel that it’s time.’
‘I apologize and take accountability for my actions, they were uncalled for,’ she wrote on Twitter after the video took off.
In August, Gomas spoke with DailyMail.com and called her actions ‘unacceptable.’
‘Distressed or not, I should have been in control of my emotions, and that was not the case,’ Gomas said over the phone.
‘My use of profanity was completely unnecessary and I want to apologize to everyone who was on that plane, especially those who had children,’ she said.
Gomas’s meltdown was caught on video last month when she frantically demanded to get off a plane, claiming someone in the back of the aircraft was ‘not real’
Passengers turned their head as she seemed to point to the back of the plane while speaking about a guy who ‘was not real’
Passengers on Flight 1009 from Dallas Fort Worth to Orlando that day were forced to deplane after Gomas suggested the plane was not safe.
Staff also de-boarded the flight and re-screen the aircraft and passengers.
Gomas’s meltdown was apparently sparked by an argument with a relative with whom she accused of stealing her Airpods.
‘The female then started claiming the aircraft was not safe and did not want the aircraft to leave due to her believing it would not make it to its destination,’ the police report states.
‘Due to the statements the flight attendants felt the aircraft needed to be rescreened. [The airline manager] explained that the passenger was denied boarding and they wanted her escorted to the public side.’
After her viral meltdown, Gomas allegedly assaulted a man in an airplane terminal as video shows her speaking with cops from inside the airport.
Video shows a bald man in a blue button-down shirt and grey slacks describing Gomas’ alleged attack in the terminal.
‘I was just sitting right here, and she just come and [makes shoving motion] pushing me and she [left],’ the man, who has not been identified, told police.

In that incident, the man said he was pushed in the chest by Gomas but the attack came out of nowhere, having never before interacted with the woman.
Gomas seemed surprised and scoffed at the accusation in a separate video.
‘Wait, I assaulted someone? I’m 5-feet 2-inches, 120 pounds. Could I hurt you? How tall are you?’
The officer responds: ‘You could go to jail for it. You could get ticketed for it,’ the officer adds.
The victim declined to press charges.
