Covidiot High Schoolers Force Cancellation Of Flight

Charlotte’s ABC News affiliate reports:

Passengers on American Airlines Flight 893 to Nassau, Bahamas were in a position to depart Monday when a group of high school students decided to stage a mask rebellion that lasted for hours. “Some people’s vacations are ruined. They were only going for a couple of nights. Now, they have to get rebooked,” passenger Stephanie Krzywanski said.

The flight was supposed to depart at 9:30 a.m, but a mechanical issue meant passengers had to switch planes. But then a group of students from a Boston-area high school decided to act up. “It was bad. First, they were yelling. They were cursing. They were being very obnoxious,” passenger Malik Banks said.

The Daily Beast reports:

Masks are still required on flights due to COVID-19. “All they had to do was follow the rules, put the mask on, sit there. No smart-mouth comments. And they couldn’t do it,” passenger Christina Randolph said.

The flight was ultimately delayed until Tuesday, ruining some people’s vacations. No one was arrested and stranded passengers received a hotel voucher. The students, however, were too young to get their own hotel rooms, so they had to spend the night at the airport.
