Porter Airlines Bullies Passengers with Arrest Threat.
Porter Airlines threatened passengers with arrest for recording its agent who was explaining about a delay at Boston Logan International Airport.
The Porter agent told people that were recording with their phones to delete the videos, and provide proof it was deleted from their trash, or they would be arrested.
Passengers sat on the tarmac in the plane that was headed for Toronto for approximately two hours before they were told the flight had to be cancelled because the latch door to a luggage compartment would not close. They were then ordered to deplane and move to the terminal building.
Toronto resident Kira Wegler said the crew explained after those two hours that they could not fly anymore or they “would turn into pumpkins.” The airline, however, later said the flight was canceled due to the severe winter weather.According to Wegler, most passengers agreed to delete their videos, but she decided to keep some on her phone.
It took three days for passengers to be placed on a different Toronto-bound Porter flight. The airline did provide hotel accommodations and some meal costs during the 3-day delay.
In the terminal, passengers were informed that the PA system was malfunctioning, so they would have to get information individually and directly from Porter personnel. That is when people started recording, and that is when Porter agents came out from behind the desk and began threatening passengers to delete their videos or they “were going to have us arrested.”
