POLL: Allegiant Air Passenger Removed For Allegedly Asking Flight Attendant To Wear Face Mask, Is This A Fair Punishment? [VOTE NOW]

🚨 POLL: Should people be forced to wear a mask?

A man was forcefully removed from an Allegiant Air flight after he allegedly asked a flight attendant to put a face mask on, according to Fox News.

In a now-viral video, an elderly man appears to be shocked after a flight attendant asked him to leave.

The user who posted the video said the man was “thrown off @allegiant airline this morning from Punta Gorda Florida this morning because he asked the flight attendant why he had to wear a mask and she didn’t have to wear one.”

A spokesperson for Allegiant told Fox News that the passenger was removed for violating FAA regulations by “repeatedly and aggressively disrupting the preflight safety briefing” after the flight attendant “briefly lowered their mask to speak into the public address microphone so that the announcement could be understood,” citing passengers who stated they could not clearly hear.

“That’s when the passenger became disruptive,” the spokesperson said. “This was not an ‘ask.’ The flight attendant’s mask was back in place immediately following the announcement.”

One user asked the airline to make sure their flight attendants enforce the policy, to which the airline responded: “Enforcement of our mask policy is certainly expected from our flight attendants. I will be sure to share your feedback with our teams.”

More from Fox News:

According to Allegiant, face coverings are required for all phases of travel, including at the ticket counter, gate area and during the duration of a flight. They also noted that every airline passenger is provided with a mask and disinfectant wipes and that their health acknowledgement questionnaire required at check in includes an agreement to wear a mask throughout travel.

The airline was just named one of the top 10 North America safest airlines to travel with during COVID-19, according to Travel Pulse.
