Jet Blue Kicks Passenger Off Flight Because of Emotional Support Animal, Traveler Claims
On Tuesday, Jet Blue apparently kicked a passenger off their flight after the traveler’s help animal touched the seat. The accusation got here from a Twitter person Jon Schneider, who took to social media after he was reportedly faraway from Flight 224, touring from Los Angeles to New York.
“@JetBlue JUST KICKED US OFF OUR FLIGHT BECAUSE OUR EMOTIONAL SUPPORT ANIMAL WAS IN OUR LAP AND HIS PAW WAS BARELY TOUCHING THE SEAT! WORST AIRLINE OUT THERE DO NOT FLY!” he wrote. “Flight attendants Mark and Nancy on flight 224 need to be fired.”
Jet Blue responded to Schneider’s tweet, writing, “Sorry to hear. Please use this link to DM your confirmation code.”
Newsweek reached out to Schneider, although he didn’t instantly reply. Doug McGraw, company communications director at Jet Blue, stated they had been having a look and would “loop back.”
Schneider’s tweet got here on the heels of a Florida lady claiming Spirit Airlines compelled her to flush her pet hamster down the bathroom on Thursday. According to Belen Aldecosea, the airline initially stated she may deliver the animal, however then wouldn’t enable the hamster on the aircraft. Aldecosea didn’t know what to do with the pet, so she flushed it down the bathroom.
The airline denied it was their concept to have the hamster put in the bathroom. “That at no point did any of our agents suggest this guest (or any other for that matter) should flush or otherwise injure an animal,” they stated in an announcement. “Unfortunately [a reservation representative] did misinform the guest that a hamster was permitted to fly as an emotional support animal.”
