DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – A Southwest Airlines flight from Dallas Love Field on Wednesday, March 30, was delayed after a passenger on board refused to wear a mask.
Before she was taken off the plane, she compared herself to Rosa Parks and Anne Frank.
“It probably didn’t make sense for Rosa either. It probably didn’t make sense for Anne Frank either. We have to take a stand.”

Passengers bound for Long Beach eventually arrived nearly two hours late.
Earlier this month, the Southwest flight attendant union called on the White House to drop the mask mandate, saying enforcing mask compliance is one of the toughest jobs they’ve ever faced.
The federal mask mandate on airplanes and airports will remain in effect at least until April 18.
