The old “pretend you’re sleeping” trick may work with four-year-olds, but it won’t work for grown adults who tried to turn thier aggression back around toward the airline and their fellow passengers on a Frontier Airlines flight.
“Tired” Couple “Bum-Rushed” Onto Frontier Airlines Flight Then Refused To Get Off When Confronted
In a video first posted on TikTok entitled, “This couple bum-rushed through bag measuring and boarding pass scanning and ran onboard,” a commotion is observed onboard. Apparently, the two boarded the flight without scanning their boarding pass or letting gate agents inspect their carry-on items.
Two gate agents from Frontier Airlines are speaking to the couple, who first seems to defend themselves, then begin ignoring the ground staff by pretending they are sleeping.
One gate agent warns, “You guys need to come out or we’re gonna need to deplane the entire plane.”
The response from these two? “If we get off, y’all getting off with us too.”
Fellow passengers erupt in anger and begin cursing out the couple and admonishing them to get off the plane. They refuse.
Law enforcement boards the aircraft and here’s where the story takes an odd turn.
Responding to repeated calls to get off the aircraft, the couple finally “wake up” in a fit of anger, yelling:
“We paid for our ticket just like y’all. We paid just like y’all. I’m not getting off the plane.
“You understand? We’re tired! We’ve been flying for 20 mother***ing hours with our money. You don’t know what the **** we’ve been through.
“And we got to this airport two hours early. We’re tired. We’re not going nowhere.”
All other passengers were escorted off the plane and then the couple was removed. The flight departed two hours late.
Here’s the video and there is bad language in it:
I realize that tempers get frayed, especially during the holidays, but it seems to me this couple has no defense for rushing onboard, ostensibly to avoid carry-on fees. You cannot get more childish than pretending to be sleeping.
This, folks, is why I won’t buy a Frontier Pass. It may be good for the blogging business, but I have no desire to deal with stuff like that when I fly. And as for this couple, I hope their selfish action will result in some painful financial consequences and a ban from ever setting foot on a Frontier Airlines flight again.
