FORT LAUDERDALE, FL - MAY 09: A Spirit Airlines plane lands at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport on May 9, 2017 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Yesterday a chaotic scene erupted at the Spirit Airlines counter after flights were canceled which led to passengers getting irate and the police had to move in to restore order. Spirit blamed the delays on its pilots, who are negotiating for a new contract. (Photo by Joe Raedle/Getty Images)

Spirit Airlines airline has reportedly banned a TikTok user who altered his digital boarding pass, making it appear as if he had paid to board with a large carry-on bag, without actually doing so. TikTok user RobKAllDay, who identifies himself only as Rob K. on the video-sharing platform, first uploaded a video of his so-called “hack” in September.

In the clip, he can be seen manipulating what appears to be the “carry-on bag” section of his digital boarding pass to read “1” instead of the “0” that was previously printed on his ticket. In the caption, however, Rob K. claims he “didn’t actually” go through with the scheme, despite demonstrating it for his 180,000-plus followers.

Nevertheless, Rob K. later claimed that Spirit sent him a letter confirming that he was banned from flying with the carrier for at least two years. For his alleged infractions, Rob K. had not only been banned from flying with the airline but also banned from entering any of “Spirit’s facilities,” with Spirit promising to call law enforcement if he should try to trespass. The letter also indicated that if Rob K. were to try and buy a Spirit Airlines ticket, it would be canceled and he would not be refunded.
