A maskless passenger decided she was going to put an entire plane’s health in jeopardy headed from Belfast, Northern Ireland, to Edinburgh, Scotland, — and ended up getting booted from the flight.
“Everybody dies, you know that?!” the woman yells at a flight attendant. “Every f–king body dies, whether it’s corona or not! Everybody dies!”
As she walks down the aisle and coughs on passengers, she reiterates that sentiment.
“Everybody dies, that’s the only thing that’s real!” she shouts.
A witness told the Edinburgh Evening News that the woman began shouting after she was seated in a row by herself and asked to put on a mask for the 50-minute flight.The woman was reportedly arrested at the airport in Belfast after leaving the plane.
“In line with EASA [European Aviation Safety Agency] guidelines, all passengers are currently required to bring their own face covering for their flight which must be worn during boarding and onboard, except when eating or drinking,” Easyjet said in a statement.
“Passengers receive clear communications before they travel and via announcements onboard to ensure they are aware of this requirement for the health and safety of everyone onboard. We will not tolerate disruptive behavior towards other passengers and crew.”
Several viral videos and photos have been created in recent months as air travel has resumed around the world while coronavirus continues to spread. Several airlines have announced widespread bans of customers who have refused to follow new mask policies.
For the passengers’ sake, let’s hope she wasn’t COVID-19-positive.
