Acting up and yelling on a plane can be grounds for getting kicked off. But tweeting? Well, yeah. Now that's a thing.
One family from the Twin Cities was asked to leave a Southwest Airlines flight to Minneapolis from Denver, because the dad tweeted a complaint about one of the gate agents.
With priority seating, Duff Watson was told he would either have to board Flight 2347 separately from his 6-year-old and 9-year-old children (who didn't have the same elite flight status as their dad), or wait to all board together later.
After arguing with a staff member, Watson posted an angry tweet: "Something to the effect of, ‘Wow, rudest agent in Denver. Kimberly S, gate C39, not happy @SWA’”, he told CBS Minnesota.
Once the Watsons had taken their seats, they were removed from the plane by the agent involved in the argument, who allegedly told Watson: "You can’t board the plane unless you delete that tweet", adding that she felt "threatened" by his social media post.
