Covidiots: Fight Breaks Out On Allegiant Air Flight 607 From Mesa To Provo, Utah, After Man Is Assaulted By Crew Members And Passengers For Not Wearing A Face Mask

Fight breaks out on Allegiant Air flight from Mesa after man refuses to wear mask 

A fight broke out between two passengers on an Allegiant Air flight from Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport on Oct. 3 after one passenger confronted another for allegedly refusing the flight attendant's request to wear a face mask in addition to a face shield. A spokesperson for Allegiant Air confirmed that an altercation happened on Flight 607 to Provo, Utah, after a passenger refused to comply with airline policy. Rylie Lansford, a passenger on the plane who told The Arizona Republic that she was sitting in the row in front of the man who refused to put on a mask, posted a video of the incident on her Instagram account @bakedbyrylie.Lansford said she was running late for the flight. When she reached her seat, she said, the flight attendant asked the passenger in the row behind her to put on a mask that would cover his nose and mouth. "He has a face shield on so he doesn't think he needs to wear an additional mask," Lansford said in a phone interview. She said the flight attendant indicated that the man had been on a flight the day before and had argued with her over wearing a mask on that flight as well. Allegiant's face-covering policy requires that masks are "of a solid material, fully cover the mouth and nose, fit snugly against the face, and be secured under the chin." The airline hands out masks to passengers boarding the flight. Source
