Notice the screenshot of the flight attendant, who’s pulling his mask down below his nose to address the passenger.
Spirit Airlines was blasted within the comments under passenger “‘Michael’s” tweet.
After a Twitter user (John V) called them out, Spirit responded by saying “the CDC cautions that will gators may not be effective.” The CDC doesn’t say they are not acceptable, nor does This kind of say they shouldn’t be worn on a flight. They certainly don’t recommend arresting passengers who wear bandanas on their faces.
Spirit Airlines’ reply to “John V”: Safety is usually Spirit Airlines’ first priority. The CDC cautions that will gaiters may not be effective, as well as we require Guests to double up gaiters so they’re dual-layered. We welcome Guests who wants to show their pride with an American flag on a face covering that will meets with our policy.

This kind of Twitter user asks why they require face coverings at all when they’re packing their flights, with no social distancing?
Why even force people to wear masks when spirit airlines are filling every single seat on a flight. Absolutely, no social distancing at all. Kind of defeats the purpose. 🙄

Did the Spirit flight attendant have any right to tell the passenger to take off his mask as well as replace This kind of with one of his choosing?
Was the Spirit flight attendant upset over the patriotic face covering, because the CDC website does not prohibit the use of a bandana to cover your face on an airplane?
