British Boxer Amir Khan Kicked Off From Flight Over Improper Use of Face Mask
Former world champion Amir Khan revealed that he has been kicked off from his flight over complaints about the improper use of a face mask.
According to the British boxer’s social media post, the airport authorities forcibly deported his squad to the United States owing to inappropriate facemask use. “I was removed off the plane today when I was headed to training camp in Colorado Springs by police,” Khan, who is slated to face rival Kell Brook in what will likely be his final bout, said.
This came after some passengers complained that they were not properly wearing facial makeup. Before he and Khan were hauled off the plane, he said he was told his colleague’s mask was not pulled up high enough on his face.
“A complaint was made by American Airlines staff, they said my colleague’s mask was not high enough and not up, that they had to stop the plane and take me and my friend off when I did nothing wrong,” he added.
Khan’s group’s flight from Newark Airport to Dallas-Fort Worth was delayed as a result of the incident. Due to their harassment, the former light-welterweight world champion was claimed to be irritated by the occurrence.
“They kicked us both off. I was sat at 1A and he was sat in 1B. I find it disgusting and disrespectful, I was supposed to go to Colorado Springs for a training camp and now I’m back in New York for another day and I have to reschedule another plane to travel back to training camp,” the former champion stated.
Khan stated that he was flying from New York to Colorado Springs to start his training camp for his upcoming fight. He described his alleged treatment as “disgusted.”
Meanwhile, the airline said that two passengers “refused to comply with crew demands” on a flight from Newark Airport to Dallas-Fort Worth. It denied that the cops were involved.
A spokesman for the airline said: “Our customer relations team is reaching out to Mr Khan to learn more about his experience and reinforce the importance of policies implemented for the safety of our customers and crew.”
