Passenger suspended for abusive note over mask

An example of the attitudes flighties on the front line have to face

A passenger has been banned from flying with American Airlines after writing an abusive note to a flight attendant on a sick bag. 


In the derogatory note, the flyer calls the cabin crewmember a 'glorified maid' and ‘mask nazi’, among other insulting language. The note was shared on Twitter by user @hibiscuslacroix. 


“Today a passenger handed this to a flight attendant upon deplaning,” read the tweet. “The flight attendant had asked her to wear her mask over her nose. Incredibly done with the general public.”

Handwritten, the note is signed by “a person who hates your guts”.   


“You mean s--t in life,” the passenger scribed. “You are nothing but a glorified maid who needs to jump down off her high horse and learn how to speak to ppl [sic]. Nobody cares about your stupid seat policies or your nose issues. We pay your salary and your attitude is unnecessary.” 


“The very fact that we have to listen & kowtow [sic] to a nobody who does s--- except collect our trash and serve crappy food makes me absolutely ill.  


“You are a mask nazi and a 4 eyed c--- and if it wasn’t for this job, you would be cleaning motel rooms for $2 tips and meth.


“I made sure to write this on a bag labeled as to what I think your life actually is … A WASTE.”


A statement to Fox News confirmed the incident and suspension of the passenger.


“American Airlines is investigating an incident involving a customer passing an offensive and derogatory note to one of our flight attendants, and this customer’s ability to travel on American has been suspended,” the airline said in the statement. 


“Our flight attendants are professionals who play a critical role in ensuring the health and safety of our passengers, and we will not tolerate mistreatment of them.”
