A passenger on Saturday evening’s American Airlines AA883 from Phoenix to Chicago O’Hare delayed all of his fellow customers by an hour when he refused to wear a mask and was removed from the flight.
As he was escorted off the Boeing 737-800, the man sang to himself and anyone in the cabin inclined to listen, “Trump Trump Trump Trump, Trump Trump Trump.”
The greatest irony is that the passenger is actually wearing a mask as he’s taken off the aircraft. It’s a little low on the nose, but he had a mask, so I’m not sure what sort of conscientious objector he thinks he is. And if he’d just worn the mask during the boarding process he’d have gotten to Chicago last night.
I shared this video with a friend who wondered if it was just the passenger’s way of removing himself from the flight once he realized he’d be flying on American’s new ‘no legroom’ Oasis configuration.
