HS teens kicked off flight after airline alleges mask dispute with passengers on board

Is it really that difficult to cover your ugly faces for a few hours? I really, really don’t understand why people are finding this difficult to do. Especially inside tight quarters where everyone is breathing the same air, like in an aircraft cabin.

WINTHROP, MASS. (WHDH) – Some recent graduates from Winthrop High School are being blamed for a delay on a flight bound for the Bahamas after the airline says a group of people refused to wear masks.

What was supposed to be an end-of-the-year getaway for newly graduated seniors, quickly turned into a major stall at Charlotte Airport Monday.

In a statement, American Airlines wrote that passengers traveling from Charlotte to Nassau, Bahamas were noncompliant with the federal mask mandate and, “became disruptive to other customers and refused to follow crew member instructions while onboard. Per procedure, the customers involved were asked to exit the aircraft.”
