American Ailrlines manager won't let anti masker fly after calling his employee a bitch

https://www.dailydot.com/irl/american-airlines-karen-referred-to-spirit-video/

The video sees a tense interaction unfold between an airline employee and an irate Karen. As it begins, the employee—who appears to work for American Airlines—is politely detailing why the woman will no longer be welcome on her planned flight. It appears to have begun over a mask dispute. The woman apparently lost her temper and lashed out at an employee. In the video, the man notes that the woman called his employee a “bitch,” which he says is “entirely uncalled for” and “inappropriate” before informing the woman that she will not be flying with the airline.

“We don’t tolerate that crap, with us, at all,” the employee says, before inviting Karen to “find another carrier to fly. I’d suggest Spirit.”

The woman then attempts to explain her side of things, but the airline employee is not having it. Karen denies having called the man’s employee a bitch, despite there being multiple witnesses, and expresses exasperation over the situation she created. Her repeated attempts to switch the narrative fall on deaf ears, however, as the man informs her that “if you don’t want to follow a federal mask mandate, and on top of that calling a vulgar name to my employee, it’s not going to happen.”

The video is in the link, it is good to see a manager stand up for his employees.

6. I loved this. "Fly like you belong in a dumpster, lady, because you do."

(With apologies to friends and family of Spirit employees.)

4. People like that should be placed on the No-Fly list just like if you were carrying nail clippers.

.

Do that a few times and this shit will end quickly.

10. I just flew for the first time since Covid. Has an almost Karen situation

It was not about Masks but a small dog. The airline employees are out of Fucks to give. The minute the lady raised her voice the attendant left the plane to get a security guy(we were still at the gate).

Another passenger said to the lady while the security guy was coming that if the lady objects one more time she is getting thrown off. Which is true. Fortunately the lady took the advice and calmly apologized.

But she was one yell away from getting bounced. Her useless husband just sat there. Luckily for her a stranger told her the score.

I wish everyone thrown off was never allowed to fly again. On any airline.

11. Good call! An easy prediction of what she would be like on the flight.

14. I was an airline ticket agent at Washington National Airport

from 1969 to 1979. It was bad enough then. It's infinitely worse these days.

16. No doubt. If you can't be civil and won't obey the rules,

you can walk. There is no 'constitutional right to fly'. If you don't like it, you can study for a pilot's license and rent yourself a plane-- and you won't have to wear a mask and can scream 'bitch' to anyone you want when you are up there... (except perhaps on the radio lol).

The 'karen' is obviously confused about who the "bitch" is, in this case.

18. So let me get this straight..

Conservatives believe that private companies should be able to make and enforce their own rules, and

American Airlines is a private company, and

they have made and are enforcing a rule regarding the wearing of masks, so

if you, Karen, don't support them in this decision, then you are apparently a secret woke politically correct left wing radical cancel culture antifa libtard.

I think I have analyzed the situation correctly.
