“It’s important to note there is no evidence this incident has any connection to COVID-19, and none of the Guests and Spirit Team Members showed any symptoms of COVID-19,” Spirit Airlines said in a statement to WJZ. “Out of an abundance of caution, first responders transported four flight attendants for evaluation. None of the Guests needed medical attention.”

The plane will undergo maintenance checks and a deep cleaning.

Chopper video of the scene showed fire personnel responding to the scene. Two people in what looked like hazmat suits entered the Spirit plane that just arrived at the terminal.

The four flight attendants were transported to local hospitals for treatment.

    Aerotoxic is a high probability, and the passengers were never told. The wear additives are related to saran nerve gas, and cause developmental issues in babies. The organophosphate additive percentage in the jet oil is higher than what is regulated when aerial spraying for mosquitoes is performed.
