A pair of Frontier Airlines flight attendants apparently said a passenger should be on the no-fly list and maybe stick to traveling by car. Why?

Because the passenger voiced concerns about someone else on his flight who appeared ill.

TMZ reports the incident happened Thursday during a trip from Miami to Philadelphia. The complainant allegedly told the cabin crew that a passenger seated behind him was coughing and sneezing. He asked to be reseated in the back of the plane.

His request was fulfilled.

But things got interesting after the flight.

TMZ says:

At one point a flight attendant who is not seen in the video tells the passenger he should be on a no-fly list and the flight attendant you see agrees. Again, the captain is looking on during the exchange.

Watch the below video of the exchange:

The report says passengers’ temperatures were checked at the gate prior to boarding. But we don’t know what the allegedly ill passenger’s temp.

I’m curious if the passenger who complained did something else during the flight to somehow earn the cabin crew’s ire. Did he whine during the entire trip? Make a spectacle to the flight attendants or other passengers? Order red wine on the rocks?

Something tells me we might not be getting the entire story.

But if, in fact, complaining about a sick passenger was this guy’s only sin, it seems the flight attendants were out of line.

What do you think?

    I agree with the flight attendants. If the guy doesn’t like coming into contact with other people, who may or may not be sick, then he should prolly stay home or drive his own car. Secondly, flight attendants was right again… he’s no doctor. Even if he was, he didn’t give him an exam himself, so how can he render a medical opinion. Third, he ought to mind his own business instead of worrying about everyone else.

  2. Now that even looking in a flight attendants direction for too long is grounds for lifetime bans……this is why I’ll never support flight attendants or their unions.

  3. Maybe the person had allergies, a plain old head cold or bronchitis. So yeah, he wasn’t a doctor, mind your business and drive if you have that big of problem being around other people.

  4. You raise a good question… did anything else happen or is this the entire story? Assuming this is the entire story, It appears the reaction from crew is part of the new authoritarian cancel culture. “You disagree therefore you’re banned”. We have lost our way as a society and the regard for fellow humankind and differences of opinion. Folks all around need to chill a little.
