This incident cannot and should not go ignored. The flight attendants who were responsible for this catastrophe should be personally sued along with the Airline. At what point do we say enough is enough!! This is unmistakable anti semitism. If we don’t stand up to these cowards for these type of incidents they will feel the power and control to escalate their vicious acts. I’m sure there is a lawyer that would take this case Pro Bono. Enough is enough!!!!

Frontier’s official response was that the passangers were deplaned because some of *the adults* were unmasked. While the video does indicate that the adults were masked, it also indicates that their masks were not covering their noses. So, frontier is likely being honest
Anyone who was ever on a MIA/LGA flight is well aware which demographic doesn’t adequately mask. Indeed, the comment section of this site–members of the above demographic–often rejects the notion that masks protect against the virus. Walk down kingston avenue and you’ll see what I mean!

That is irrelevant

Watch the video. The first call was to remove just the family of the 1 year old baby, because the baby wasn’t wearing a mask, not because of a large group. Maybe they weren’t wering it properly, but that’s not the reason they were deplaned. On no flight is EVERYONE wearing their mask on both their mouth and nose. Usually the flight attendants remind people to put it up, sometimes not even. I flew many times during the pandemic and people’s masks are under their nose all the time and there is no deplaning. Frontier is using the complaint to… Read more »

Outrageous! Someone should start a petition, we should write protest letters to the airline.
But the most effective would be a lawsuit on behalf of all of the passengers that got stuck in FL because of this.

Truth hurts, what do you expect when Orthodox Jews support Trump.

When you support Trump of course it makes sense to kick you off the plane when your infant doesn’t wear a mask even if the rules say that infants don’t have to wear masks. And it’s not anti Jew at all to high five one another for sticking it good to the Jews but actually pro Jew because Jews support Trump.

That’s a ridiculous comment. ( I hope it’s sarcastic though but in the other case-)Thinking an entire minority votes one way and basing your actions on that one a blatantly bigotry. It’s like saying “oh look Black people voted for dems now look at all their issues”
You don’t know who this woman voted for ! You don’t know who most of the orthodox community voted for (despite the Ami poll)!
This is outright antisemitism and needs to be condemned.

I don’t normally do this because I think sarc tags are the internet’s gutter bumpers but we live in crazy times and my absurd and totally facetious comment would likely be taken as reflective and entirely sensible on any leftwing website and so in this case then sarc tags are warranted.

Politics or Basic Human Respect?

Let’s not mix the two.
Since when does politics give you the right to disrespect another human?
NEVER.
And if they can respect everyone on the plane besides for Jewish people then the anti Semitism is clear.

I recommend to take a stand and call Fronteir Airlines Customer service
1-801-401-9000
You will get a recording
Select feedback (I think #3)
Then press #6 and speak w a live agent.
Let them know it will hurt the airline in the pocket if they dont make a public statement to denounce what occurred!
Power in Numbers. More complaints perhaps they will realize they can’t get away with this despicable behavior!!

I know this was awful, but Frontier said repeatedly it was NOT because of an infant not wearing a mask. They said several adults were not wearing masks, refused to wear them when they were asked, and furthermore were abusive towards the airplane staff on the plane when asked. Many of the passengers on the flight cheered when the family were escorted off, I don’t think because they were anti-Semitic, but because those unmasked adults were making a fuss and being rude to the airplane staff. All of the reportage about this incident that you are following seems to come… Read more »

There is literally video evidence. While I cant see who cheered, there’s witnesses who saw the flight attendants high fiving each other and who saw them cheer. Watch the video, the first call was to remove the family with the baby not a “large group”. And most of the passengers stood up for the family. And besides, i would definitely believe the many passengers (especially the non jews, who would have no reason to stick up if they were wrong) over the airline who tries to protect themselves and their employees without even investigating the story.

this is bs. blatant anti-semitism , this would never ever happen to a black person( the world would have lost its mine) , let alone a family with an infant and a single mother alone with 6 children. stop the bs. i was on a plane with a 4 -5 yr old ( non-jew, father was gay) not once wearing the mask and not once asked to wear it

I can’t know exactly what happened—any more than you do—but I do know you sound like either a very young child, or an adult idiot. The poster above simply pointed out that the story “may not be completely accurate”—the same can be fairly said for every single story on the Internet (& not only on goyish sites) … and also every single story you hear in shul or at the mivkah. People exaggerate, people repeat rumors, and sometimes, people even lie to make the story better. So if you didn’t see it yourself, you do NOT know exactly what happened.… Read more »

I have no idea what took place on this flight, and I do not CV condone anti semitism in any way, if it is true that the flight crew behaved like this, ( it’s not on video)they should be removed or disciplined get some sensitivity training….. With that being said, I was once on a flight there was an entire family running coming going sharing hard boiled eggs until the lights went out, as soon as Dawn broke on the plane about three hours later, the davening and minyan calling started… I was absolutely mortified, there were ukrainians on the… Read more »

You sound very juvenile. He didn’t say the baby was at fault. He didn’t even say the parents, or other people were at fault. He simply said sometimes our behavior is also a factor—we’re not exempt from ever being to blame for anything, just because yes, there is antisemitism in the world. And we ARE responsible for going a few extra yards to avoid chillul Hashem. Unfortunately, some people often forget that part of the deal—you don’t just get to feel superior to goyim and pat yourself on the back when they behave badly—you have to actually have a higher… Read more »

They should sue, for gross insensitivity and disrespect which likely would not have been shown to almost any other minority. That being said it’s equally important to show respect to possibly harried attendants.

The whole debacle was due to two adult women who refused to put on their masks when they were asked. They then turned it around to play out about a child! Shame!! This is a terrible Chilul Hashem !!

It’s an unhealthy posture think you are special and everyone is out to get you.

Sue them for going against their own rules. We also had a clearly Anti Semitic incident by a black stewardess. We were VERY respectful and the airline apologized. The stewardess did not believe me when I told her that I will write to the airline

unfortunate times
March 2, 2021 9:48 am

Its a very unfortunate situation. And H only knows there are so so many people against us. We should be extra extra careful and make sure we wear our masks all the time and properly. Lets not give anybody more reasons to hate us, some already do. Its our duty to save lives. And this means masking up. Especially in public places like air-planes. The video shows a religious woman who has the mask under her nose and keeps pulling it up. This is just not acceptable. We must take responsibility.

What's the real story?
March 2, 2021 12:48 pm

I wonder why Frontier didn’t kick off the Orthodox Jewish family with the mask-less two year old on my flight in January. Could it be there’s more to the story?

Even better would have been to see EVERYONE take off the stupid mask! Good for those others that stood with them, Jew or not.
