The mask did not have a filter which confused passengers.. “This then panicked people on the plane and we had to wait for him to be escorted off”..said passenger Joseph.
The man said he was trying to protect himself from the Coronavirus, but he was escorted off the plane.
The flight continued on to Houston after he was escorted off the plane.
American Airline representatives acknowledged the incident on Twitter.
