According to TMZ he reportedly continued saying: "Why is she on our flight? She should be flying private."

The husband of the unruly passenger shared a series of tweets which have since been deleted.

They stated: "Ivanka and Jared on our flight. My husband expressed displeasure in a calm tone, JetBlue staff overheard, and they kicked us off the plane."

And: "Ivanka and Jared at JFK Terminal Five flying commercial. My husband chasing them down to harass them."

JetBlue confirmed the incident in a statement saying that if the crew determines that a customer is causing conflict on the aircraft the customer will be asked to de-plane especially if the crew feels the situation runs the risk of escalation during flight.

The airline added that the de-planed passengers were put on the next available flight.
