Female Pilot for Trip Airlines Kicks Male Passenger Off Flight

One of Trip Airlines’ Embraer aircraft upon departure.

Many of us learned from our parents, “if you can’t say anything nice, then don’t say anything at all.”  This is also true when it comes to sexist comments and one man found that to be true earlier this week.

In San Paulo, Brazil, a female pilot for Trip Airlines kicked a male passenger off her flight after he made loud sexist remarks about females flying planes.  She had him kicked off and escorted away by police.

Trip released a statement regarding the incident and also included that “it won’t tolerate disparaging remarks made about any of the 1,400 women working for the airline.”

I just have to throw my two cents in here as I think the pilot did a wonderful thing and I hope that more individuals stand up to people like this when negative comments are made towards them.  Good for her.
