A spokesperson for the airline told Newsweek: “One of the passengers exhibited concerning behavior during the pre-boarding process and was asked to exit the aircraft due to safety concerns. After resolving our concerns, we booked the passenger on the next scheduled flight to their intended destination.

“At Alaska, safety is our top priority. We train and empower our crews to make decisions that ensure the safety of all on board the aircraft. Part of keeping a flight safe is making sure all guests are fit to fly,” the spokesperson added. (Read more from “Alaska Airlines Defends Decision to Kick Woman off Plane amid Viral Video” HERE)
