A passenger who vaped on a flight headed to New Orleans is being banned from flying Spirit Airlines for life.
On June 4th, the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office says a 30-year-old Florida man set off the plane's smoke alarm after deliberately ignoring a flight attendant's warning to stop smoking.
The flight attendant on the flight coming from Detroit said she saw the man take a drag from an electronic cigarette and exhale all the smoke into a bag. When the flight attendant told him to stop, he continued smoking in the plane's bathroom, triggering the alarm.
A passenger also reported that the man smuggled his own stash of alcohol onboard and seemed heavily intoxicated.
Despite all these offenses, the man was not arrested.
