When the plane finally lands, the plane’s captain makes an announcement asking everyone to let a special military family off first to catch their next flight.

Following the plane Captain’s announcement, this is what you hear:

Several passengers in first class began to boo and complain, Perry said.

“Some people were saying ‘This is just baloney,’ and ‘I paid for first-class for this?’ ” RecordNet

“When he made that announcement, there was some hissing and some booing behind us,” Perry told the Army Times. FoxNewsUS
