While a spokeswoman for Frontier Airlines has said the seat belt sign was off and no passengers were in danger, the FAA is reportedly looking into the incident.
"They are still looking into it, it's still open," Tony Molinero, a spokesman for the FAA told The Catalyst this week. " I don't know where the [investigators] were told about it, but when they saw the video they just decided to look into it because it is better to be safe than sorry."
