Frontier Airlines passengers ‘voted’ off flight after argument
A passenger on a Frontier Airlines flight was “voted” off the plane by fellow passengers after a verbal altercation broke out before the plane took off.
A series of viral videos posted on social media described the altercation between a couple, another passenger and a flight attendant while the plane was on the ground at Trenton Mercer Airport in New Jersey last week. The flight, bound for Atlanta, reportedly started because the couple argued with a flight attendant over a seat.
However, another passenger reportedly got involved and started antagonizing the couple. It is unclear why the other passenger became involved.
Representatives for Frontier Airlines did not respond to FOX Business’ request for comment.

In the first of three videos, amassed nearly 16 million times on TikTok, a woman yells at another passenger, who is sitting a few rows behind her, telling her to mind her own business when asked to leave the plane.
The footage shows crew members standing by the couple waiting to escort them off the plane.
“The fact that you’re asking us to get off is ridiculous,” the woman told the flight attendant, according to the video. “He has literally done nothing wrong.”

“If you can hear me and want her removed from the plane, raise your hand. I’m not even kidding,” he said. “I have 40 hands up.”
The passenger was then seen grabbing her bag from the overhead bin and being escorted off the plane by a crew member.
