  • Moshe Feinstein says:

    I hope this beautiful family get what they are entitled to from Spirit Airlines and can enjoy wonderful vacations in the future.

  • Zila bollag says:

    He is our man.

  • A Yid says:

    Update? Was an apology issued by Spirit? I’m supposed to fly with them soon, and after hearing about this I’m ready to cancel!

  • David says:

    Why can’t people humble themselves and say
    We were wrong
    I’m sorry. It’s a normal thing
    These people were cruel
    Uncaring and absolutely disgusting
    I know they are scared of Covid and all
    But if ur really scared then being trapped in a capsule hours on end with hundreds of people just ain’t for you. You should pick a different career choice

  • John J Romando says:

    Unbelievable ! There wasn’t a problem until the flight attendant made it a problem with an attitude. The little girl was just sitting on her mothers lap very quite and content. The guidance has been very clear from the beginning. If a special needs person has a problem with wearing a mask they don’t have to as well as individuals who have medical issues.They informed the staff prior to entering the plane what the situation was and they let them board and then throw them off the plane ? Really!

      Career changes are not that easy to make, especially when you have a steady job with a regular income. pandemic times have wreaked havoc with many people’s lives and livelihood. perhaps the passengers can be extra sensitive to these people who are exposed to various viruses and bacteria in the course of their day. Just food for thought – a stewardess on a flight to Florida told me that contrary to what people think, the international flights are the plum jobs. The passengers tend to be finer, easier to please and the staff have a chance to rest in between serving meals. On the domestic flights, the passengers are very demanding, the stewards are busy all the time and they usually do
      return flights so it’s really exhausting.

    there is always two sides to a story

    • true says:


      But one side is usually wrong.

    • Anonymous says:

      Wow I wonder what you would say to cases of chinese concentration camp workers…the same thing? two sides? Sometimes there is a clear and outright wrong. This story is an outright wrong and very sad. The proof is that they let the family back on seeing as how bad it would have been otherwise. And the mother with the special needs child. I can’t even imagine. All I am doing is applauding her courage and faith to raise him.

    I have flown Spirit a few times but have stopped in recent years. I never experienced anti semitism but their staff have zero “bedside” manners. They need training on how be plain old fashioned nice to people. The same thing can be said in a compassionate way and it makes all the difference. One personal example: I showed up to the check in area with a suitcase that weighed 41 lbs. on their scale. I had weighed it before leaving to the airport and it weighed 40 on my scale. One of the scales was not accurate (probably theirs). The guy told me I would have to pay $70 dollars to check the suitcase. When I told him I didn’t have that kind of money and that I’d rather just take out one pound and transfer it to another suitcase that weighed less than 40, he told me I’d have to get off the line that I was waiting on for 20 minutes and go to the back of the airport and open my suitcase there because it would cause a huge disruption. Mind you I just needed to take out a pair of shoes but the guy had no patience to wait the minute it would take. Instead I had to walk a few minutes to a deserted area with 4 kids plus suitcases, open the suitcase, transfer the shoes, walk back and wait on line all over again. I almost missed the flight. He was so rude about it. I’ve heard stories from others flying different airlines and the guy let them transfer things right there at the counter and were NICE about it.. After a few rude encounters I would rather pay more and fly with friendlier people. You get what you pay for. Too bad they don’t know how to hire naturally nice people!

  • Covid is as fake as kamala Harris says:

    I think a start would be to make Lakewood airspace a no fly zone for spirit

  • Spiritless says:

    I stopped flying Spirit at least 8 years ago due to the consistent unpleasant experiences. It’s not worth the savings – I’d rather pay in $$$s rather then rudeness and abuse.

  • abe-man says:

    what are they looking to acomplish with this lawsuit?

    In this case, the flight resumed, the steward was diciplined, and the familly allowed to re-board and fly.

    Other earlier incidents that we all saw, certainly warrant a lawsuit.

    But this case?

    what am I missing?
