    The plane can fit 210 to 250 passengers. Boeing says how many seats it fits is up to the airline.

    Spirit Airlines booted a man off a flight at O’Hare International Airport over the weekend for being “verbally abusive” to flight attendants after they asked him to pull up his pants, airline officials said.

    The man reportedly had “excessively low” pants and was asked to pull them up when he and a woman he was with began threatening flight attendants on the Orlando-bound flight, according to the Chicago Tribune.

    The man and woman deplaned once law enforcement arrived and were booked on the next Spirit flight to their destination, delaying the original flight by five minutes.

    Spirit’s code requires customers to wear “adequate” clothing,” and allows staff to ask customers to comply with their requests if they are in the “best interest” of other customers, the Tribune reported.
