A woman has raised eyebrows over her bizarre actions on a recent flight.

The woman in question was on board a Delta Air flight to Atlanta in the US state of Georgia from Syracuse recently.

It is not exactly clear when the flight was but an ACARS (Aircraft Communications Addressing and Reporting System) message from the plane to the ground has gone viral.

And just imagine being the one sending this message.

“Req Redcoat meet AC Pax (passenger) in (seat) 13A is breastfeeding a cat and will not put cat back in its carrier when FA (flight attendant) requested,” the message reads.

Red Coats are “elite airport customer service experts”, who wear red coats on flights, used by Delta, according to the airline’s website.

The airline is yet to comment on the incident.

Either way, a screenshot of the exchange has gone viral on Twitter.

“Flying just gets weirder and weirder,” one man tweeted.

Others really hoped it didn’t really happen.

“Please tell me this is fake. I’m begging you,” one man tweeted.

However, an aviation expert in the thread claimed the incident was real and he “personally confirmed it”.

There was also some suggestion it delayed the flight.

“Just imagine if they announced to the terminal why it was late,” one man tweeted.
