A viral social media video depicts a whole plane clapping and celebrating while a couple is escorted off a Southwest Airlines flight.
A female is seen fighting with a crew member in a video posted by a user called Brendan Edler.
The video begins in the middle of the debate, shot discreetly from three rows ahead.
The controversy centers around a rider who declined to wear a mask in order to conform with COVID-19 protective protocols.
It’s worth noting that the lady in the video is wearing a mask at the outset.
The passengers’ response, on the other hand, indicates that this was not the case earlier.
The lady, whose name has not been released, is adamant that she did not violate any laws. The woman tells the flight attendant, “I did comply.” “You’re suggesting I didn’t follow your instructions and put my mask on when you asked?”
Following that, the woman suspects the flight attendant of lying to her. “You’re a liar and you have to live with that,” she notes.
The passengers on the flight then continue to jeer the woman and tell their goodbyes.
One individual yells, “Bye!”
One shouts, “Get off the plane!”
Someone else responds: “That’s what happens when you don’t say you’re sorry”
The woman then gets up, gives the plane passengers the middle finger, and walks away with her travel partner.
Many that have stayed on the plane look ecstatic, with one woman dancing. This lady also turns out to be the flight attendant
Southwest was asked by reporters for more details about the event. The airline reported that it has no more details on the matter, however it did include a bunch of general information on its mask-wearing policy. Southwest missed such a great opportunity to correct an injustice.
According to a Southwest Airlines spokesperson, “Federal law requires Southwest to ensure every person age 2 and over to wear a mask at all times throughout a flight, including during boarding and deplaning. We communicate the face-covering mandate to all customers at multiple touchpoints throughout the travel journey.”
