Many of the sick passengers became sick and felt nauseous. The illness became so intense that firefighters were called in to wait for the plane to land in Houston.

After landing, United Airlines pulled the plane and sent it to get a deep cleaning.


One unidentified was banned from a flight after having a bit of a temper tantrum. According to NBC News, the woman was asked to use an approved mask instead of her own, which was designed with fashion in mind and not health and safety. In addition, the woman was allegedly asked to replace her cloth mask with holes with an approved mask supplied by the airlines.
