A male passenger of Delta Airlines was recently banned from riding the carriers of the company for life because of his boisterous outburst inside a flight supporting president-elect Donald Trump through use of profanity and harsh language.
A trending video of the pro-Trump man exclaiming his rants loudly was posted by a fellow passenger, Emma Baum, on which she captioned "Didn't take long to notice that I'm back in 'Merica..."
The 43 second clip was recorded in the November 22 flight from Atlanta to Allentown and has now viewed more than 2 million times, according to NBC News. Mixed reactions from the comments section mostly showed disgust from the man's actions.
Delta Airlines apologized for the fellow passengers of the man who have to endure his scene with an unknown woman who was answering him. The airlines stated that the man should have not been allowed to continue with his flight and that the tickets of the passengers will be refunded in return for their trouble.
Delta CEO Ed Bastian produced a memo in Monday stating the prohibition of this man to ride Delta Airlines.
"This individual displayed behavior that was loud, rude and disrespectful to his fellow customers," Bastian stated in the memo. The cabin crew questioned the man after his outburst but decided to allow him to continue his flight, according to Telegraph.
"After questioning the customer, our team members made the best decision they could, given the information they had and allowed him to remain on the flight," Bastian stated. However, if our colleagues had witnessed firsthand what was shown in the video, there is no question they would have removed him from the aircraft."
Bastian pointed out that this incident only highlights the current tension in the country and that they must now practice courtesy and civility more than ever in giving out service to their passengers. Delta reiterated that they will not tolerate anything less than treating everyone with dignity and respect.
