EasyJet Passenger Escorted From Flight By Police After Refusing To Wear Face Mask

EasyJet Passenger Escorted From Flight By Police After Refusing To Wear Face Mask

A passenger on an easyJet flight had to be escorted off the plane by police after refusing to wear a face mask, with fellow travellers saying they were 'aggressively arguing' with airline staff.

Officers had to board flight EZY77 from London Luton to Glasgow on Sunday 30 August, following reports that someone would not comply with requests from easyJet flight attendants.

Police Scotland later confirmed that a man was issued with a 'recorded police warning' in connection with a 'disturbance' during the flight.

According to eyewitness Gisela Martinez, a woman on board had refused to wear a mask for the flight and was ignoring airline workers.

Her companion then became 'very aggressive' and confronted staff, also taking his own mask off.

"She was asked several times, but to no response.

"However the man she was with was aggressively arguing back - to the point where he took off his mask, stood up and confronted staff down the front of the plane.

"He was very aggressive in his attitude to the point that a few of us felt the flight might be turned back to Luton.

"However staff continued to remind him that this was part of the terms he had agreed to when purchasing his ticket and he sat down - unhappy, but compliant from then on."
