The woman started yelling about death and coughing on other passengers as she was booted from the plane.
“Everybody dies, you know that?!” the woman yells at a flight attendant. “Whether it’s corona or not! Everybody dies!” As she walks down the aisle and coughs on passengers, she reiterates that sentiment.
The woman was reportedly arrested at the airport in Belfast after leaving the plane.
“In line with EASA [European Aviation Safety Agency] guidelines, all passengers are currently required to bring their own face covering for their flight which must be worn during boarding and onboard, except when eating or drinking,” Easyjet said in a statement.
“Passengers receive clear communications before they travel and via announcements onboard to ensure they are aware of this requirement for the health and safety of everyone onboard. We will not tolerate disruptive behavior towards other passengers and crew.”
