A Frontier Airlines passenger faced the crew on his flight to express concern over the other passenger being ill. reaction? He should drive next time, and be on the no-fly list. Hmm …
What do we know about this Frontier Airlines collision
TMZ has a story of what happened last Thursday in a Frontier Airlines flight from Miami to Philadelphia. The passenger in seat 25C was concerned about a coughing and sneezing passenger who was sitting immediately behind him (in row 26).
The passenger concerned was asked to resign, and that request was accommodated. At some point during the flight, the concerned passenger confronted one of the flight attendants to ask why the passenger was not removed from the plane. She reportedly replied that if she was worried that she should drive next time, and she should be on the no-fly list.
This is not video capture, so I would usually be skeptical. However, these exact feelings were reflected by another flight attendant on the same flight.
When the man was displaced he confronted the crew about the situation, and in particular how the flight attendant spoke with him. The nearly 90-second video features two flight attendants with the captain, and the passenger tries to emphasize his concern about the ailing passenger.
Being told that he should drive and be on the no-fly list rather than apologize or stop, he has said that … he should drive next time and he should be on the no-fly list.
Here are some of the highlights:
- When the passenger starts sharing what happened, the flight attendant replies “This is a form of transportation, sir, you have a choice, you can drive your car. If that’s the problem, then you can get people off the plane.” Can’t ask to come down, they are coughing or sneezing “
- When the passenger remembers his version of events and asks if the passenger who coughs and sneezes should not have been removed, the flight attendant asks “why should he be removed?” And the passenger replies “Because the man is sick,” to which the flight attendant replies “You are not a doctor”
- At this point the flight attendant tells the passenger “you don’t like your masks,” to which the passenger replies “I got two, sir”
- At this point the passenger explains how he was told that he should drive his car and be on the no-fly list; At the time this other flight attendant says, “You should be on the no-fly list, you really should be”
- When the passenger asks why he should be on the no-fly list, the flight attendant replies “Because you’re kicking someone for sneezing and coughing”

This is my frontier airlines status
I have different views on this.
First of all, we do not know how the passenger behaves during the flight. Did he only come to the attention of the flight attendant once or twice? Or did he get aggressive, bring it up a dozen times, or ask to stop, but didn’t? I would say that the man in the video appears to be extremely calm, almost as much as you would see on tape compared to any other airplane collision.
Subsequently, flight attendants should work in a more professional manner. There is absolutely no requirement for a passenger to tell them the next time they should drive, or that they should be on the no-fly list. This is uncontrolled for the bus, and indicates a lack of ability to aggravate conditions.
I am not sure that the airline did anything real wrong by not removing this passenger:
- During check-in, Frontier Airlines requires that passengers accept that they do not have any coronovirus symptoms, and are not exposed to any
- Frontier Airlines does a temperature check at the gate (I’m not suggesting it’s useful, but it’s worth pointing out, because Frontier is one of the few American airlines to do so)
- Frankly we don’t know how severe coughing and sneezing were, but generally I don’t think that’s enough reason to kick someone off a plane, because there are so many people who sneeze because of allergies, etc.
Even with cautionary airlines, thousands of people fly to the US every day at the end of the day, and there will be some who are not big in wearing masks, some people who appear ill. , And yes, there will be many people who have coronavirus. Airlines are never able to take out all those passengers.
Frontier Airlines A321
A passenger from Frontier Airlines was rescued when someone followed him and sneezed repeatedly. Later that person again expressed his concern in front of the crew, and was informed that he should drive next time, and be on the no-fly list. Then when he expressed concern about the way other crew members were treated, he said the same thing.
I’m not sure that the crew had done anything wrong in removing the seemingly sick passenger (we just don’t know enough), but they certainly could have acted more professionally towards this man.
Although the FAA has stated that it will adopt a “zero tolerance” policy towards mistreating passengers and Delta has also threatened to ban unruly passengers, I am not sure it will qualify.
What do you do with the status of this Frontier Airlines?
