Video shows a Spirit Airlines flight attendant threatening to kick a family of four off a plane in Florida on Monday — arguing that their 2-year-old girl wasn’t wearing a mask.
All of the passengers on the flight out of Orlando International Airport were eventually forced to get off the plane before later being allowed back on board.
In footage posted on social media, a flight attendant told the Jewish family — including a toddler sitting on her pregnant mom’s lap eating yogurt and a dad with his mask around his chin — that they needed to exit the plane for “non-compliance” with the mask rules.
The dad pulled his mask up over his mouth and nose but the Spirit staffer nodded to the tot and said “She’s not wearing a mask,” according to the clip.
“The baby?” the mom replied incredulously.
A woman seated next to them points out that “a lot of kids aren’t wearing masks.”
