Woman thrown off plane for calling member of staff "arsehole" and not wearing a mask

A woman has been thrown off an internal flight in the US for refusing to wear a face mask and calling a member of staff an “arsehole.”

Woman thrown off plane for calling member of staff “arsehole” and not wearing a mask: She was due to be travelling with Frontier Airlines from Cincinnati, Ohio to Tampa, Florida when the incident occurred on the 3rd December. Video footage shows a crew member explaining the rules and asking the woman to put on her mask before eventually asking her to get off the plane. In the clip, shared on social media, you can quite clearly hear the crew member say “Ma’am you need to have a mask on. You need to have the paper mask they provided. You have to wear your mask the whole entire flight. If you’re unable to do so you will be removed from the flight.”

As the staff member turns away the passenger is heard saying “thanks, arsehole”. Turning back to her the Frontier worker says “OK, you’re done. Let’s go, you’re getting off the aircraft. You’re done, you’re not going to speak to me like that.” She adds “You agreed to this when you checked into our flight and when you bought your ticket so I need you to get off the aircraft at this time.” As the passenger is escorted from the plane by a member of security with her case, but still not wearing a mask, the other passengers can be heard clapping and cheering.

A spokesperson for the airline said in a statement “Frontier Airlines’ face covering policy is clearly explained during the reservations and check-in process, during boarding and onboard the aircraft. Face coverings are required throughout a traveller’s journey when flying with Frontier. The passenger will be placed on our Prevent Departure List.”
