Philadelphia ABC affiliate WPVI reports three flyers were removed off a recent Frontier Airlines flight – with one of them deplaned at the request of the cabin.
Argument Results in Multiple Flyers Escorted Off Aircraft
The incident began shortly after boarding of a Frontier flight between New Jersey’s Trenton-Mercer Airport (TTN) and Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL). In a series of TikTok videos uploaded by user lanaisli, the argument was between a couple and another flyer several rows away. At one point, the male of the couple escalated the incident by throwing money at the person they were arguing with.
The couple was eventually asked to leave the aircraft, but that wasn’t enough for one flyer. After going on a diatribe about the “American mindset,” another male passenger called for a vote to remove the third antagonist.

“Raise your hand if want her removed!” the flyer asked of the cabin. Immediately, several hands raised among the travelers.
After the impromptu vote, the third passenger was escorted off the flight by airport personnel. According to reports, no charges were filed against any of the parties. It is unclear if they are further banned from flying Frontier.
Incidents Come as Congress Mulls Banned Flyer List
Data from the Federal Aviation Administration shows there have been 586 unruly passenger incidents through April 30, 2023. This latest incident comes as Congress is considering a bill to create a national unruly passenger database banning certain flyers, which could potentially be managed by the Transportation Security Administration.
