American Airlines expects summer travel to be near pre-pandemic levels
Boyd Group International president Mike Boyd weighs in on ‘FOX Business Tonight’
The FAA is investigating the Bahamas-bound American Airlines flight delayed on Monday by rowdy teens who refused wear masks — as the Boston-area group’s program provider claimed most of the kids did nothing wrong.
The recent high school grads from Winthrop, Massachusetts, made "smart mouth" comments to flight attendants when asked to mask-up, according to witnesses — but program organizer Breakaway Beach claims the airline falsely blamed the entire group for a single student’s refusal to mask-up.
"The group was treated in an improper and overly harsh manner, causing unnecessary stress and aggravation to the travelers and their parents from afar," Winer said in a statement to CNN on Wednesday.
"The act of one individual is not the responsibility of others, and the students that were abiding by the rules should not have had to endure this type of treatment."
