An argument over a face mask turned into a full-blown fight on board a plane in Arizona
A woman says a fight broke out onboard an Allegiant Air flight to Provo, Utah after a passenger refused to wear a face mask as required by the airline.
Rylie Lansford captured the ensuing argument between the two men on camera while waiting for the flight’s departure Saturday at Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport, Salt Lake City NBC affiliate KSL reported. Lansford was seated near the passengers, but when someone threw the first punch, she said she immediately retreated and started recording the incident.
“It was absolutely insane to me because it’s all about a mask,” Lansford told KSL. “It didn’t need to get that way.”
The fight started when a passenger who wore a face shield sitting behind Lansford got into an argument with a flight attendant over wearing a face mask, KSL reported. Source
