At first the pilot seemed friendly, said Reiss, but things took an awkward turn when she pointed out an interracial couple sitting in first class.
The pilot acknowledged that some people on the plane appeared to be nervous in a video taken by a passenger.
‘Okay, if you don’t feel safe get off the plane, but otherwise we can go’, she said.
It was at this point that Reiss grabbed his bag and asked to be let off the plane.
‘Being a pilot is a tough and stressful job, she was just not equipped today to do it’, said Reiss.
‘She seemed in an emotionally tough space, so I hope she finds the help she probably needs’.
