Dallas Cowboys Player Kicked Off American Airlines Flight
People get taken off planes and we’ve seen plenty of stories about it. This one, however, is a little different. Usually people are angry after getting taken off the plane, but it seems that Tyrone Crawford, a player for the NFL team Dallas Cowboys, was kicked off of a flight. Apparently, the whole situation unfolded after Crawford was told he had to check his bag because it was too big. Eventually, he checked the bag and then called the flight attendant a bum, at which point he refused to move from the aisle to let the flight attendant pass. He was later called up to the front of the plane, at which point he was asked to leave.
Thankfully, this ended better than a lot of stories where someone gets kicked off the plane. It seems Crawford was sent on his merry way home to Canada on the next flight and he showed his love for the airline once he was rebooked. Regardless, it is never a good idea to block any member of the flight crew from accessing an aisle, even if just for “a minute” like Crawford claimed.
@TCrawford98 We’d like to look into what happened. Please DM your record locator and share more of what happened.
