A 53-year-old North Carolina woman and her teenage daughter discovered vomit in their seating area on a recent Frontier Airlines flight, and the mother was later reportedly arrested after she “became disruptive” and refused to deplane and get on another flight.
Rosetta Swinney, of Durham, North Carolina, told WTVD that the flight was delayed so the plane could be cleaned, and that she was shocked to see the mess.
“(My daughter) jumped up to say mom! My hands are wet,” Swinney told the outlet. “She smelled it. She says ‘this is vomit, mom.’ So we went to look. It was on the bag, all over her shirt, her hands,” Swinney said.
The pair were flying from McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas to Raleigh-Durham International Airport in North Carolina last week. They told flight attendants about the vomit.
“The flight attendants apologized and immediately invited the mother and her teenage daughter to move to either end of the plane so that the seat area could be cleaned by a cleaning crew,” Frontier said in a statement. “The mother and daughter were also told that once boarding was complete they would be provided other seats if available. The daughter was also offered cleaning products for herself and invited to use the lavatory to wash up.”
Swinney contends the flight attendant in question didn’t try to clean up the mess or reassign their seats.
Other passengers recounted the incident on Facebook. “Keep in mind there is an entire row (3) of empty seats in front of us. The attendant could have simply switched their seats and asked someone to come cleanup the vomit,” a passenger wrote.
