Submitted: “ANTI SEMITIC ACT AT SPIRIT AIRLINES: We were on flight NK544 from CUN to MCO. During our flight, my husband was eating and drinking food which we bought on the plane and the flight attendant came up to my husband and told him to put on his mask. My husband politely told him that he cannot eat with his mask on and he will put on his mask as soon as he finishes eating. The rude flight attendant stood over him and then went to talk with the other flight attendants on board.
He later came to us and gave my husband a letter about civil disturbance and told us that he will have the police wait for us at the gate as soon as we land.
When we landed, the flight attendant did not let anyone off the plane for 45 minutes until the police came. When law enforcement arrived, my husband and I were let off the plane.
I asked the flight attendant what his name is but he took off his name tag and turned his back to me.
We explained to the officer what happened and people who were on the plane told the officer as well that we did nothing wrong and the officer let us go and told us to file a report against the flight attendant who is obviously unwell and unfit for the job.
After the police let us go, the flight attendant went over to an immigration officer and took my husband’s passport information and still did not want to give us his name.
My husband and I were the only Jewish people on the plane and it is obvious that this flight attendant singled us out because of our religion and faith. This is an anti Semitic act and we will stand up for ourselves and our beliefs and we will take it as far as we have to.”
