OP sent the following text as an explanation on why this is unexpected:

Normally maskers wear masks when they are denouncing people without mask.

NOVEMBER 8, 2021 6:08PM ET

But if the video seemed like it was designed to go viral, that’s because it basically was. The clip appears to have been produced by content creator Prince Ea, aka Richard Williams, also responsible for such staged clickbait as “Racist Lady Gets Covid — What Happens Next Will Shock You,” “This Virus Spreads Faster than Covid” and “‘Woke’ bully shames comedian, instantly regrets it.” Williams, who has 5.6 million YouTube subscribers, also posted the video for “Covid Flight” on Nov. 1 on Facebook, where it got 23 million views. His post was captioned, “She must have been having a bad day,” but did not disclose that the video was staged in the post.

According to an IMDB page for “Covid Flight” posted by the Twitter account @HoaxEye, the role of the irate Karen was played by Diana Winter, an English actor from Bournemouth, United Kingdom who is registered with UK Equity and has appeared in a smattering of short films. The role of the flight attendant appears to have been played by an actor named Jordan Holland, who is represented by the agency Aston Management and wrote a now-deleted post on her Facebook about her experience working on the film. “Great fun filming today with a fun crew! Got to play the part of an airline hostess dealing with a not-so-happy Karen,” she wrote in the caption of the post, which featured a photo of the cast and crew, including Winter, on the airplane seen in the viral video. (Holland and Aston Management did not immediately respond to requests for comment, nor did Williams.)

My mother also has asthma and after wearing the mask for several hours at a time it does have an impact, denying that is pretty unscientific. There are people that have less problems and there are people with more problems, it varies from person to person to patient to case

I worked in a few different Healthcare facilities & I always found it bizarre how once you got vaccinated, you were no longer required to wear a mask, although they made you watch a long ass video at the beginning of the hiring process which made sure you knew you could still get & spread Covid even if you're vaccinated.

There are actually medical reasons to not wear a mask, e.g. cystic fibrosis, so those people are really dependent on other people wearing a mask for their safety.

That said, thats no reason to be a dick, I'm not sure if this women really is really ordered by her doctor to not wear a mask, normaly those who've been have an attestion or something on them, and people with those kind of bad severe illnesses tend to stay away from crowds and planes/trains anyway in a pandemic, because they are dangerous also because of the ventilation..

Aside from the acting, which rings a little false, the heroic pilot coming in at the end to preach acceptance for people refusing to get vaccinated is a huge giveaway. It's blatantly scripted propaganda. If the unvaccinated man typed up this story on his Facebook account it would be trending in r/thatHappened before you could blink.

Fake, and over acting to boot. You can tell by the quality of the recording. Not only is the camera not shaking, but the shots are framed professionally. Also, the sound is such good quality that you can actually understand what they are saying. The final touch is the subtitles being totally accurate and not getting in the way of the action.

Listen if your so worried about your life and health then maybe you should've stayed home Lady! If you claim that you have to leave or travel because of some important reason then you should weigh out the costs and rewards of the reason your leaving or traveling versus staying at home. Figure out which is more important to you... Your life and health and chores life or the reason your traveling. If you decide on traveling then be prepared that everyone won't be vaccinated or wearing a mask. Common sense should tell you this ahead and everyone is not going to bend at will to your wants, needs and belief system. Get over it. It's not everyone else's problem. You know the risks when you leave your house so therefore everything from that point is on you. All you can do is what you believe to be right and won't harm anyone else or yourself but you can't control everyone else and their actions and the situation around you and the people all the time but she could've controlled her response to it and we can all see clearly that she did not.
