Passengers vote woman off flight after row breaks out on cramped plane

Passengers boarding a Frontier Airlines flight voted to boot a woman off the plane after she was involved in an altercation with other travellers.

The incident occurred while on a plane that was scheduled to leave Trenton-Mercer Airport in New Jersey for Atlanta, on May 1.

As passengers took their seats, two women began confronting each other.

In videos from the scene that subsequently circulated on social media, the ground crew is seen escorting one of the women and a man, who was apparently her partner, off the plane.

Then, a fellow traveller is shown calling for the other passengers to vote on whether the second woman involved in the argument should also be removed from the flight.

"If you can hear me, raise your hand if you want her removed from the flight," he says.

A number of nearby passengers were seen raising their hands in agreement, and the second woman was also escorted off the plane.


A TikTok user with the handle @lanaisli later explained that the couple had argued with a flight attendant over a seat, resulting in the man being removed from the flight.

The videos of the incident posted on social media have collectively garnered over 16 million views.

The Daily Star has approached Frontier Airlines for comment on the incident.

It comes as the airline announced plans for a brand new “all-you-can-fly” pass that could revolutionise travel.

Frontier Airline’s new airline ticket lets you journey to any destination served by the air carrier on 300 days out of the year.

The only catch is that you can only confirm your flight “a day before you take off” – so flexibility is key.

The budget airline’s GoWild Pass will be offered from next spring but, the last-minute rules mean you can be kicked off a flight if other passengers book all the seats.
