A family in the U.S. has been removed from a United Airlines flight after their 2-year-old daughter refused to wear a mask
The airline has a strict policy that requires all passengers to wear protective masks – regardless of age ” According to www.usa.one. However, Elise Orban and her husband could not get their daughter to wear a mask before their flight from Denver to Newark left the runway.
According to LADbible, Orban’s husband tried to get the two-year-old girl to wear the mask, but she was extremely emotional and refused to obey her parents. The man told the flight attendant that he was willing to cover her mouth during the flight, but this did not comply with airline rules regarding COVID-19. As a result, the family was removed from the flight, and Orban posted a description of what happened on social media – and the story quickly went viral. “We feel like they didn’t even try to warn us, didn’t work with us, didn’t ask questions, didn’t do anything to help the situation. – said Elise in an interview with Fox News – It turned out to be about this: your two-year-old is not following the rules, that’s it, get off the plane.”
She also said United had banned them for life from the airline, but the airline later denied the claim. In a statement, a spokesperson told LADbible, “The health and safety of our employees and customers is our highest priority, so there are numerous rules, including the requirement that everyone on board ages 2 and older wear masks.” “These procedures are not only supported by CDC [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] recommendations and our partners at the Cleveland Clinic, but they are also uniform across all major airlines.”
