Passenger banned for lifetime for vaping on a Spirit Airlines flight

Published on : Tuesday, June 11, 2019

A passenger flying from Detroit to New Orleans on June 4 was given a lifetime ban by Spirit Airlines for vaping on board a plane that set off the smoke alarm.



The flight attendant saw him taking a drag on an e-cigarette before exhaling into his bag. The 30-year-old Florida resident was spotted heading to the aircraft toilet and was told that he could smoke or vape on board the plane.



He was able to set off the plane’s smoke alarm which was heard in the cockpit and the pilot had to descend to 35,000ft in order to shut off the alarm.



The man was caught drinking from several bottles of alcohol hidden under his jacket. This is prohibited under the Federal Aviation Administration rules which restricts drinking alcohol only if it is served to them by the ‘certificate holder operating the plane.’



At the Louis Armstrong International Airport a deputy sheriff met flight NK985 after it landed. He reported that the passenger was highly intoxicated.



The man said that he was not aware that smoking was banned on aircraft and denied vaping in the toilets.


He was banned from flying with the U.S. domestic airline for life and wasn’t charged anything.
