On Monday two passengers got into a fight on their plane departing the San Juan airport. The pilot turned the plane around back to the gate (“by activating the COVID-19 protocol as a passenger was feeling unwell”). That wasn’t the end – things really escalated when made it back inside the terminal.
This ended badly (in arrest) for our heroes. And surprising no one – based on the departure board that’s blurry in the video – this appears to have been a Spirit Airlines flight.
With fewer people traveling, and a sense that ‘we’re all in this together’ during a global pandemic, is it naive to have thought we’d see fewer inflight altercations?
