Pilot Threatens To Divert Plane Of Trump Supporters Failing To Wear Masks And Chanting 'USA'

An American Airlines pilot threatened to divert and 'dump' people out if they didn't 'behave' after the pro-Trump supporters were chanting and failing to wear masks:

The flight is said to have taken off on Friday (8 January) without incident from Washington, D.C., heading for Phoenix.

Videos posted on to social media show the passengers sat in their seats repeatedly chanting 'USA', before the pilot makes an announcement.

He can be heard saying: "This is the way it's gonna be... it's a four and a half hour flight to Phoenix.

"We'll put this plane down in the middle of Kansas and dump people off - I don't care.

"We will do that if that's what it takes, so behave, please."

One of the videos came from a passenger called Mindy Robinson. She wrote: "Wow. I'm on a plane full of patriots flying from DC to Phoenix and we started chanting 'USA'... and the Captain came on said told us he'd drop us off in Kansas if he had to if we didn't obey their every single rule.

Another suggested: "Why don't you just leave your fellow passengers alone like a normal human?"

To which Mindy replied: "It was a ten second chant. If saying the 'USA' offends you so much... f***ing move."

Someone else wrote: "Oh no, someone asked you to act like a grown up, oh no, that must have been so hard for you, oh no."

A spokesperson for the airline told LADbible: "At American, we take the safety of our customers seriously and we value the trust they place in our team to care for them throughout their journey.

"Prior to departure from Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA), the pilot onboard flight 1242 made an announcement emphasizing the importance of following crew member instructions and complying with mandatory face-covering policies."

The airline added that the flight departed on-time and arrived early at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (PHX) and said that there were 'no in-flight issues reported'.
