In January, a passenger on Spirit Airlines flight 3317 from Cleveland to Tampa was asked to remove his mask, which was considered offensive, and replace it with one provided by the company.
A passenger aboard ultra-low cost Allegiant Airlines was removed from a flight after refusing to remove his "Let's Go Brandon" face mask, according to the New York Post.
On 16 February, a video emerged on social media showing a flight attendant asking the passenger to change his mask.
This guy was reportedly kicked off a flight because he had “let’s go Brandon” written on his mask and refused to change masks. @Allegiant employee claims it’s an “FAA regulation” pic.twitter.com/4ipRbqggEB— Libs of Tik Tok (@libsoftiktok) February 16, 2022
The man refuses to put on a different mask, prompting the flight attendant to tell him to leave.
"I'm gonna have you leave the aircraft," she said in the footage.
According to Fox News, Allegiant Airlines confirmed that the passenger had been removed from the plane, but insisted that this was because he had disobeyed the flight attendant.
The phrase "Let’s Go Brandon" became popular with US conservatives after an October NASCAR race in Alabama. The crowd was shouting “F**k Joe Biden”, but a TV reporter was trying to hide it by suggesting during an interview with racing driver Brandon Brown that the people were actually chanting "Let’s go, Brandon."
The phrase has become a slogan among Joe Biden critics.
