Mask Debate Sparks Argument on Airplane
Occurred on October 28, 2021 / Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA
Info from Licensor: Where: American Airlines flight from Chicago to Minneapolis. Who/What: The guy in the Cowboy's hat was told repeatedly to keep his mask on by the flight attendant. After asking him 3 or 4 times he finally complied but started to argue with passengers around him who were upset with his behavior towards the flight attendant. They both appeared intoxicated and were even seen drinking on the plane. He and his wife continued to make a scene refusing to obey the rules, as well as harassing Individuals around them including my brother (man seen without mask) and my dad who isn’t seen in the video. When the plane landed the man in Cowboy's hat insinuated he wanted to fight my dad although the situation seemed to be resolved. My brother (who was sitting between the cowboy hat and my dad on the flight) then stood up to the couple. They continued to argue, meanwhile, a bystander sitting nearby (seen in USA mask) acted as a diffuser in the situation. Ending Result: both parties were questioned by the police. My brother and dad were thanked for sticking up for the flight attendant and crew, the other party will most likely be penalized for their behavior on the flight.
