A captain on a United Airlines flight from San Francisco to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico has discouraged passengers from engaging in further political arguments on the plane, according to various passengers' tweets late this week.
A video was recorded of the captain on the United flight 1212 during his speech by a passenger, and was released on Jon Bauer's YouTube account on Friday.
To stop the passengers' clashing over politics in plane, the pilot said that "I understand that everybody has their opinions. That's fine. If you support him [president-elect Donald Trump], great. If you don't, I understand,"
He continued, "And what I do ask is that as people we have the common decency to respect each other's decisions and to get along,"
He continued, "Nobody is going to change their minds by arguing. And let's keep our opinions to ourselves, on this particular matter, at this particular time. When cooler heads prevail and we can talk and realize we're all human beings and we call can stick together and we can all pull for this country in our own way, then that's what we should do."
United Airlines spokeswoman Megan McCarthy confirmed that the incident had occurred on their flight, saying that the pilot had worked to stop an argument and get the flight safely to its destination.
