The incident happened Saturday night as Delta Flight 6562 began its descent into Kennedy Airport.
A Newsday news manager who was on the flight said flight attendants tried to cover the woman with a blanket while she yelled “No! No! No!”
The Newsday manager, David Holland, said that when the plane landed, other passengers got off before police removed the woman.
“She didn’t seem like she was coherent… Everybody was leaning in, trying to get a view of what all the commotion was,” Holland was quoted in the Gothamist blog.
A spokeswoman for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey said the woman was taken to Jamaica Hospital Medical Center in Queens.
The woman’s name was not released. She is not expected to be criminally charged.
