LAS VEGAS, NEVADA - MAY 25: A bird flies by in the foreground as a Southwest Airlines jet comes in for a landing at McCarran International Airport on May 25, 2020 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The nation's 10th busiest airport recorded a 53% decrease in arriving and departing passengers for March compared to the same month in 2019, a drop of more than 2.3 million travelers, as the COVID-19 pandemic impacts the travel industry.

Jodi Degyansky, 34, was kicked off of a Southwest Airlines flight on Saturday.

The reason… her child wasn’t wearing a mask while eating snacks.

On multiple occasions the staff had asked Degyansky to have her child put on the mask, but he was in the middle of eating. They had already left the gate but turned around and returned to the gate to have staff members remove them from the flight. Even though the child had put his mask back on, they were still kicked off.

One of the flight attendants had reportedly told her that parents were using snacks and drinks as an excuse for their child to not wear masks.

Degyansky said, “I’m sure other parents are going through this, I want people to either do their homework before they choose to fly or find an airline that has more leniency.”

She was forced to buy another ticket for $600 through American Airlines in order to get home because the next available flight to Chicago wasn’t until Monday.

Southwest Airlines said that they would refund her ticket.
