Spirit Airlines kicked a family off of a flight from Orlando to New York on Monday because their 2-year-old child was not wearing a mask… while she was eating.
The child was eating.
The flight attendant told the parents they weren’t complying with the mask policy and told them they had to pick up their belongings and deplane.
Other travelers sitting near the family defended them, but the flight attendant would not back down.
The mother, who is 7 months pregnant, told the flight attendant that her child just turned two one month ago.
