Passenger Takes ‘Home Of The Bare Fare’ A Little Too Literally
Bruce Parkinson, Open Jaw
Budget carrier Spirit Airlines calls itself “the home of the bare fare,” so it probably got what was coming when a male passenger stripped naked as he boarded the plane.
Customers on an NK flight from Las Vegas (where else?) witnessed the unusual scene.
"He removed his clothes and then approached a flight attendant," airport spokesman Chris Jones. "Metro officers were called and he was given medical attention." It’s not clear why he was given medical attention, though we can likely assume it was mental rather than physical.
The incident happened Saturday on a flight bound for OAK. The passenger was held for observation by authorities and medical personnel after what local media outlets described as a “medical episode," according to The Associated Press.
