American Airlines employee boots passenger from flight: I’d suggest taking Spirit

01:14

An American Airlines passenger was booted off a Texas-to-Florida flight after allegedly refusing to wear a mask. The video was taken by another passenger and has gone viral on social media. In a statement, American Airlines said a customer was not allowed to travel after failing to comply with the federal mask mandate and addressing one of our team members using profane language. NBC News does not know what actually happened on the plane.
