Screaming, standing, without a mask, drinking alcohol and even smoking. This is how a group of Canadian ‘influencers’ traveled by plane on December 30 from Montreal to Cancun.
In the videos posted on social networks you can see how the group, of about 40 people, dances and behaves completely oblivious to the pandemic that plagues the world.
The Canadian authorities have launched an investigation into what happened on the Sunwing company flight and the ‘influencers’, participants of a reality show, could face heavy fines for breaking aviation rules, according to Canadian journalists.
The Canadian Prime Minister, Justin trudeau, has spoken and has assured “to be very frustrated” with the videos, which were deleted from social networks when the controversy broke out. Trudeau assures that with these attitudes, “totally irresponsible”, put airline staff “in danger”.
No return flight
The business owner, James William Awad, was in charge of renting the plane to transfer the group of ‘influencers’ to Cancun.
He has denied that safety norms or covid-19 regulations were violated and qualifies what happened as “a simple party on an airplane.”
The company canceled the flight back from the group, which is still in Cancun. Other Canadian airlines they have also refused to accept the group on their planes back to Canada.
