A follow-up video then shows the woman being escorted by two police officers on the plane asking her to leave the plane.

"Ma'am, come on. Let's go, do you have a bag with you?"

Beatrice added to the video in the caption saying, "This is what happens when you smoke on a plane. She denied smoking in front of the flight attendants and they found the cigarette in her empty cup."

"The woman next to her told us she had a double vodka cranberry during the flight."
