Tensions are always high when people are crammed into small spaces, especially when those small spaces are airplanes.
We all feel like sardines when we’re packed tightly together, and some days are worse than others. On one United flight, when a fight broke out, the pilot knew he had to come on the intercom and say something.
The racially charged incident involved a black woman who felt threatened by another passenger and began to cry, according to CBS. The pilot knew he had to get the flight to Puerto Vallarta back on track and get everyone there safely.
The inspiring pilot reminded his passengers that it’s important to respect everyone we meet. We’re in this together.
He goes on to say that he believes cooler heads will always prevail, and the passengers break out in applause. By all accounts, the rest of the flight went smoothly.
