On a flight from San Francisco (SFO) to Puerto Vallarta (PVR), an argument between passengers over the election forced a United pilot to get on the intercom to request that passengers keep their political views to themselves.
“I understand everybody has their opinions, that’s fine. If you support him, great. If you don’t, I understand. However, we’re out here to go to Puerto Vallarta, supposed to be having a good time, and what I do ask is that as people we have the common decency to respect each others’ decisions and to get along on this 3 hour and 13 minute flight so that we can have a good time when we get down there.”
The announcement was captured on YouTube and had this caption:
On my friend’s @wirelessness flight from SFO to Mexico, some kinda scuffle broke out where an individual with a “plaid shirt and a camo cap” said something racist (about being “glad to have kept his guns”) to an African American lady, and she began to cry and freak out. They separated the two of them, and then the Captain of the flight got on the PA and made this announcement.
