Family forcibly deplaned from Spirit flight for ’toddler not wearing mask’

Family forcibly deplaned from Spirit flight for ’toddler not wearing mask’

A New Jersey couple and their two small children, aged 2 and 7, were kicked out of a Spirit Airlines flight departing from Orlando to Atlantic City for not wearing masks. The couple, however, accused Spirit of lying when it said they – and not their young child – refused to wear masks. The mom told Fox that the kids weren’t masked as younger one was just 2 and the older one had frequent seizures.

What a horrible policy. Cloth masks serve no function in preventing transmission of viruses to begin with and children are not particularly useful vectors either. I miss when science dictated our actions and not illogical fear.🤦🏽‍♂️

And the moral to this story is don't fly with a fifth rate outfit long recognized as the worst excuse for an airline in North America.

An airline is well within its rights to require all passengers wear mask...but come on this is nuts. Its a freaking toddler!

I wonder how long it'll be before people accuse the flight attendant of antisemitism for kicking off a man wearing a yamaka 🤔🤔 I mean'I'm surprised the family di'n't try that angle so they could get where they were going

Kids rarely get covid, if they do they are not vectors. If the kid was not showing signs this was major over reaction. There have been a total of 31 deaths under 4 years old. Out of millions. Most of those compromised immune systems. Most children who become infected with the COVID-19 virus have no symptoms, or they have milder symptoms such as low-grade fever, fatigue, and cough. Early studies suggested that children do not contribute much to the spread of coronavirus. https://www.health.harvard.edu/diseases-and-conditions/coronavirus-outbreak-and-kids

Hey I know if you dont want your kids to wear a mask then drive your own vehicle. Let's see someone with a carry permit try to board a plane packing. Rules are there for a reason, if you dont like them find an alternative or get booted. You know like the gay couple wanting a wedding cake have to do.

Considering the hypoxic implications of these masks anyway, putting them on a child as young as two or a grand mal epileptic is iffy at best. Add in the limited benefits(ie only protecting others from you, the wearer) and it makes no sense.

This has gone beyond ridiculous. Like anyone could keep a mask on a toddler’s face anyway.
