  1. Bottom line don't act like an entitled ass on a plane. It you had a life threatening allergy you wouldn't be flying. Thank GOD those officers took her off before she died

  2. Well she said she had a life threatening dog allergy, they were trying to save her. I mean she did not really expect any dog to be removed from the flight, did she? You have to be very careful of what you say when you are boarding a plane.

  3. Another entitled person trying to put they importance above others. IF she had a life threatening allergy she should have a paper or medic alert bracelet. I bet it turns out her " life-threatening" allergy is phony.

  4. If she had life threatening allergies , it seems she would want to get off the plane. Thank god those officers saved her life.

  5. Ah, this is the first time I hear about this problem. I smell her bad more than a dog because the ISIS and Gang MS13 does not like a dog.

  6. If she had just gotten up and walked off there would not have been an incident. But, she can't do that. Need to be a pain for everyone. She got she deserved.

  7. Is this airplane for dogs or for people? My God, how could the woman expect that she will travel with dogs… And there was certainly more than one dog!
    Besides, I have the same problem with smokers. How can I avoid someone who sat for hours in smoke and whose mouth stink on moldy old smoked bacon?
    At such hardened smoker I would have for sure an attack of suffocation or vomiting!

  8. Support the Airline on this, if you have specific requirement on a flight it is our personal responsibility to report and be responsible for your own health and safety. Should she be removed forcefully? Yes, but I would prefer if some one tase her with a electric gun first, less screaming and fighting, Having consequential medical condition could cause mass hysteria and might even harm some of the flight attendant on board as you are tring to fight for your life.

  9. Hmm, don't know, seems like bullshit. I wish the police didn't have to force her off, but hell, they had to force her off, she was really not being sensible. I don't know man, seems like you would be more understanding if you had lived with this.

  10. I don't even think this warrants an apology.

    If you have a severe allergy, and your going to be in a confined space with said allergy, YOU SHOULD PROBABLY GET THE FUCK OUT OF THERE SO YOU DON'T DIE.

  11. Yeah, but the dog is more important than her. Wow, she paid. It's a shame. They need special flights for people with service animals. Our country.

  12. life threatening means just that. she brought it on herself and shouldn't have said anything if she wanted to risk life flying on that plane

  13. hope she sues airline and police for tonnes of money
    shit with the dog should be sued too along with the doctor who is pulling "comfort dog notice" trick (there is the place for pets on a plane – keep them there)

  14. "A service dog (ok) and another dog (wtf does that mean)"? "Failed to show a medical certificate" (really?). Out "privileged" by a rich person's dog.

  15. lmfao this is bogus, imagine paying that much and getting kicked off a plane bc of a fucking service dog which is catered to blind ppl probably ONE blind person at that too. too bad she didnt have her medical documents, she's at a loss.

  16. America is such a shit pIt country this obnoxious cow will probably sue and win. Personally I would have kick her all the way off the plane!!

  17. AMERICA is now totally third world: Animals & people (sheeples, correctly) have to travel in the little metal tube together, like in central Africa, inhaling each other's gases & particles, and behaving like sheep are supposed to, or the cowboys with their electro-shockers come to discipline them. Who is so stupid to travel that way?

  18. Once people dressed & showered for travel, and made sure they don't annoy their fellow travelers. Now you travel in the locker room atmosphere, with dogs pissing & shitting all around you. And the uneducated overweight stinkers with their 7 day underwear hanging out dare to defend that.

  19. Southwest should no way apologise – and I applaud their actions. I bet this pathetic woman has no such life threatening allergy! Feel sorry for officers having had to physically force her off plane since she refused to budge. What did she want – the other passenger and dogs to be taken off – who would have no doubt advised airline in advance that they needed the dogs on board. Unfortunate the woman didn't disclose her "life threatening allergy" in advance!! Once she is proved to not have life threatening allergy, she should be banned from flying with them again.

  20. Just to serve she acted like a psychopath and she got what she deserved. Who does she think she is a queen that if she's allergic to a dog they should kick out people with dogs and keep her. She is an Indian woman and they hate dogs over there. She's not allergic to dogs she just hate dogs she can go back to India where they don't have dogs in the plane. The airline should have not apologized to the psychopath woman.

  21. This is what she's saying now … her 2 Months being pregnant, what does that got to do with anything other than to play the "Woman Pregnant Card" to up her Victimhood Points. She's trying to portray herself as vulnerable as she can, so to score those victim points. She's looking for a payday, (she's suing the airline) playing the race card.

  22. Unless You Want To End Up Like This Woman "Keep Your Mouth Shut" & Tough It Out & Deal With It!!!She Had To Learn This The Hard Way!!!

  23. I would say, people with allergies have a right to expect the cabin to be allergen free. The people that want to travel with emotional stability animals should have one of the breeds that do not cause allergic reactions in people. When these doctors prescribe an animal, an allergen-free breed should be specified. This was never a problem until recently. So, imagine the folks with allergies in a state of shock. No one wants to be sick for a week after being exposed to a dog or cat.

  24. She didn't even have any allergies. She's a Muslim college professor at Harvard. As a Muslim, she is not supposed to be around dogs, so she used allergies as her excuse. She should be charged for making false claims.

  25. Every time I see a dog in a store, restaurant, or plane, it makes me want to light a cigarette. Seriously, let's get consistent with our regulations… Some people are allergic to the pets. And even if you have no allergy to them, pets commonly carry fleas, ticks or have parasitic worms or worm eggs coming out of their butts. Not to mention they are shedding their fur and slobbering saliva. And they are a risk to bark and bite. But the worst part: EVERY epidemic known in human history was started by the mix of people and animals–us catching their diseases or the parasites that they carry. Not everyone is thrilled to be around your yapping and growling chihuahua named Napolean that alternates between scratching fleas and licking his butt and balls then drools on the seat. Sorry to break it to you. Meanwhile, second hand smoke is so dangerous, LOL, that we can no longer have a smoker lounge anywhere on a plane or in an entire airport that's the size of stadium. We have become so immature and really so stupid.

  26. Airlines need to STOP APOLOGIZING! This woman was a selfish bee-yatch who didn't think the rules applied to her. She tried to lie in order to get pets kicked out of the cabin, then freaked out when that lie backfired.
    She shouldn't be rewarded for that.
    She should be banned from flying with the airline.

  27. She didn’t have an allergic reaction…therefore she does not have an allergy. She lied and tried to make service animals seem as though they were the problem when in fact it was her. She was not “just walking” in fact she wouldn’t walk and kept holding onto the seats and dragging her feet. This woman deserves the backlash she is getting for her allergy claim.

  28. Dog allergies are not lifethreatening. Forcibly removing her was therefore uncalled for. Also just swapping seats would have been a good solution. Instead they decide to call the police and get a bad reputation. Plane dumb. /pun.
