Marketing manager Tiffany Gomas apologized on Sunday for her fury on an American Airlines flight on July 2 and said she was ashamed of her conduct – but admitted internet attention had been “fun”.
Gomas, 38, was flying from his hometown Dallas-Fort Worth airport to Orlando, and decided the plane was unsafe, loudly demanding that everyone on the flight evacuate.
On Sunday, she apologized for her behavior.
“I apologize and take responsibility for my actions, they were unjustified,” she wrote on Twitter.
“My worst moment was captured on video.”
Gomes told DailyMail.com on Wednesday that his life had been “exploded” since his extraordinary rant.
She said on Sunday: “While the memes were fun, the flip side was cruel. I thank my friends and family for supporting me through this ordeal.
“This experience has been life changing for me and I hope to do some good and promote positive mental health. Stay tuned!’
She coordinated her Twitter post with the launch of her Instagram page and YouTube channel.
Tiffany Gomas posted a video on Twitter on Sunday apologizing for her conduct on July 2
In the video she uploaded, she said: “Hi everyone, it’s me – Tiffany Gomas, better known as the airplane freak. Which is completely justified.
She continued, “As you know, I didn’t want to talk about the viral video, but I finally feel like it’s time.”
Gomas told DailyMail.com on Wednesday: “My life has exploded. It’s scary.
“Things go viral and everything changes.”
Gomas continued, “First and foremost, I want to take full responsibility for my actions.
“They were completely unacceptable.
“Distressed or not, I should have controlled my emotions, and I wasn’t.”
“My use of profanity was completely unnecessary and I want to apologize to everyone on that plane, especially those who had children on board.”
She said she couldn’t imagine “going through this and trying to explain to your child what just happened.”
Gomas, her Goyard bag under her arm, walked to the front of the plane on July 2 and told other passengers she was disembarking because the plane was unsafe.
The video showed a visibly shaken Gomas telling passengers: “I don’t care and there’s a reason…”. I’m telling you right now that motherfucker over there isn’t real and you can sit on that plane, and you can die with them or not. I’m not going to.’
Speaking from her $1.6million home in Dallas, Texas this week, Tiffany Gomas has finally broken her silence about her viral ‘collapse’ on an American Airlines flight last month
The 36-year-old has revealed her life has ‘exploded’ since her now-viral collapse on an American Airlines flight and is now seeing a lawyer
Gomas also claimed that much of what has been circulating in the media or online is “inaccurate”, but declined to elaborate.
Speaking exclusively to DailyMail.com from her home in Dallas, a recalcitrant Gomas said, “No one knows anyone else’s story and no one should judge.” Nobody knows what it is.

Passengers turned their heads as she appeared to point towards the back of the plane while talking about a guy who ‘wasn’t real’
Gomas’ meltdown was apparently sparked by an argument with a relative she was traveling with who she accused of stealing her airpods.
“The woman then began to claim that the plane was unsafe and did not want the plane to leave as she believed it would not arrive at its destination,” the police report said.
The Dallas-based marketing executive received a warning for criminal trespassing, but she has not been charged or arrested.
“Due to the statements, the flight attendants felt that the aircraft needed to be checked again. (The airline manager) explained that the passenger was denied boarding and they wanted her escorted to the public side.
She got off the plane, but by the time TSA agents arrived to escort her to the public side of the airport, the visibly upset woman was trying to get back.
The plane’s passengers were eventually forced to disembark and be checked again by security as a precaution.
Officers from the Dallas Fort Worth Department of Security attempted to speak to a “distraught” Gomas, but she refused to cooperate.
She was eventually escorted to the unsecured side of the airport but, despite her earlier hysteria, made repeated attempts to get back through TSA screening and into the gate area.

They gave her a warning for criminal trespassing, but she was neither charged nor taken into custody.
