It’s unclear why the fight started – Fox News reported that the fight broke out when a customer refused to comply with the face mask policy, and CTV News reported that Ross’s husband Jack, who recorded the video, said the brawl was over seating assignments.
Ross’s husband said that police were called and one woman was escorted off the plane, according to CTV News.
