Best reason not to joke about #Ebola on a plane…. to avoid a Hazmat greeting party #video

A man who joked about being from Africa and having Ebola on a flight from Philadelphia to the Dominican Republic was removed from a USAirways plane upon arrival by officials in HAZMAT suits. Video below. More from CNN:

Ebola is no laughing matter, especially not at airports or on planes, where screenings have gotten tighter.

So, when a man on a flight on Wednesday may have joked that he had been to Africa and had the deadly disease, he received a special escort off the plane.

Four officials in blue plastic hazmat suits boarded U.S. Airways Flight 845 to retrieve him after it landed in Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic.
