Spirit Flight Evacuated Because of a Video

By  | 

This morning a Spirit flight bound for Chicago from Baltimore was delayed for several hours this morning, suddenly returning to the gate right before take off.

The reason was unclear for awhile. A reporter who was on the flight mentioned seeing a woman and child move towards the back of the plane as it was taxiing for take off. Once at the gate 4 people removed for questioning and then all passengers were taken off so it could be searched.

The apparent cause for alarm?

“Authorities said a man was watching a video, which prompted someone else to alert a flight attendant…The flight attendant alerted the pilot, who made the decision to turn the plane around.”

Curious to know what exactly it was a video of, or maybe I don’t want to know.

    Spirit airlines would not change our flights to help us evacuate from Orlando, Florida Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday because our flight was scheduled to fly out Monday, October 10th. What don’t they understand when a hurricane alert has been issued. We wanted to escape from the natural disaster. People have been killed by hurricane Matthew. I will never fly Spirit Airlines again nor will I ever let any of my family or friends fly Spirit Airlines if I can help it they have. I will spread the word to everyone i come into contact with for the rest of my life. They have a very poor customer service department. If you know what’s good for you you’ll never fly spirit airlines again!
