An American Airlines passenger thought it would be really funny if he boarded his flight from Dallas to Houston with a full-blown gas mask on his face. Nobody on the flight was laughing.
The flight was delayed an hour because the unidentified man refused to take off the mask, causing passengers to panic. Many thought he might have snuck something dangerous on the flight. He was eventually escorted off the plane.
A spokesperson for American Airlines said that the passenger was later rebooked on the next flight to Houston on Thursday night and flew without the mask.
