Southwest Airlines Pilot Tells Passengers “Come On, Brandon” At Anti-Biden Excavation: Reporter

A Southwest Airlines pilot reportedly told passengers on the plane’s intercom on Friday, “Come on, Brandon” is a passphrase used to mean “to hell with Joe Biden.”

The line was spoken, and the passengers on the morning flight from Houston to Albuquerque, New Mexico heard a loud sigh. According to Associated Press reporter Colleen Long, who said she flew and heard the announcement.

She spoke for a long time unsuccessful attempt to get a comment from the pilot while on the plane. In a later statement, the airline told her that “the behavior of any person who causes disagreement or insult is not justified.”

Friday’s incident may not have been the first time a pilot made such a statement during a flight, as a video posted on TikTok on October 11 claims that it featured another Southwest Airlines pilot telling passengers, “Come on Brandon ”, Welcoming them on board.

People commenting on the video, whose identities could not be verified independently of HuffPost, said they had similar experiences with Southwest as well as Delta.

Biden’s upcoming mandate to vaccinate COVID-19 for federal employees, including airline employees, has caused dismay among Southwest Airline employees.

The airline’s pilots union unsuccessfully sought a temporary restraining order this month, arguing that the vaccine could have medical side effects that could jeopardize a pilot’s career.

On October 4, the airline initially said it was laying off non-compliant employees. He later reversed this threat by stating that he would work to help his non-vaccine workers get “accommodations.”

The decisions came amid massive flight disruptions blamed by the airline for bad weather and air traffic control problems, although the cancellations were thought to be related to a pilot strike over Biden’s vaccination demands. Southwest has denied this claim.
