A mask or no mask at all is not a good idea to hit people.
A passenger on a flight from Miami to Atlanta recently hit a flight attendant in front of a plane full of shocked passengers – and, as with several other similarly destructive airlines, this appears to have been caused by the passenger’s refusal to comply with the carrier’s mask.
Another passenger on the plane filmed the incident, which was then uploaded to social networks. The rift occurred during a Delta flight on Monday, Yahoo News reports. A BBC reporter, Suzana Kianpur, shared the footage on Twitter and said she was in the field when the incident occurred.

The footage shows a flight attendant who appears to be having a tense conversation with a passenger who appears to have a mask attached to his neck. Another passenger is standing near the two women, but it is not clear if this man is involved in the situation.
The flight attendant and the woman continue their conversation, as the woman gets closer and closer to the flight attendant. Other passengers can be heard commenting on the woman̵
At that moment, the other passengers on the plane began to stand up and protest against the violent behavior.

Delta Air Lines did not immediately respond to Fox News’s request for comment.
Katie Kay, a BBC News reporter, appears to have been on the same flight and later said the woman was escorted off the plane by police after the entire plane returned to the gate.
“Police boarded the plane. The passenger appears to be leaving. The @Delta flight attendants managed with remarkable patience and good mood,” she wrote.

The controversy over face masks is nothing new for the airline, with several such confrontations occurring after all major carriers have announced mandates for masks for non-exempt passengers.
Most recently, Fox News reported that an Allegiant Air flight to Utah became the scene of a brawl after a passenger allegedly refused to wear a mask covering his nose and mouth. Another passenger on the plane, Riley Lansford, shared footage of the fight, which was reported shortly after boarding the plane.
