Mask policies are always a problem on flights.
An entire Southwest Airlines flight to Nashville was forced to disembark Tuesday morning after a passenger allegedly refused to wear a mask and would not leave the plane, the airline told Fox News.
The passenger took the 9:20 am flight to Las Vegas, where she was reportedly asked to wear a mask, but she refused. The aircraft returned to the boarding gate and officers were called to the scene to attend to the passenger.

The woman was taken to the southwest gate for a ticket refund and then taken to an unsecured side of the airport, the outlet shared. She was not arrested.
