Woman dragged off Southwest Airlines Flight After Alerting Crew Of A Life-Threatening Pet Allergy

Please do not think negative to Southwest Airlines just for no reason. This happened last night (9-26-17) on a BWI-LAX flight on Southwest Airlines after passengers had already boarded. What is your opinion on this and should this have been treated better? Story linked below:

Also, I have linked a Youtube video by Southwest Airlines about the incident:

Please be honest, kind, and respectful to others regarding this topic.

From what I understand, Southwest (and most other airlines) ask their passengers to report allergies before the flight so proper accommodations can be made. From what I understand, she neglected to report this until they had already boarded, so I understand why they asked her to remove herself.

Again, it is sad that it had to come down to forcing her off, and the officers were a bit excessive, but I understand the decision.

Oh no…now the news is going to create a huge riot…please let the media not know about this. We don’t need a whole nother “united” incident. No no no.


On the flip side, I love Frontier. Get it? Flip? Flip the Dolphin? Haha oh hey a door

I think this incident is big enough to have a right to be posted. Pretty sure that is what you mostly comment on a lot of people’s #real-world-aviation incident reports.

Thank you lol. But in all seriousness I think this is an incidents to let blow over. The media better not make a big deal out of this. I truly cannot believe I’d be saying that about an airline I’ve never loved, but no airline, no matter how bad, deserves that type of negative media attention.

Just let it go man. It creates thought and conversation. If you don’t like it, flag it, or private message the author. No need to go off topic.

Wake me up in three months when the media is done with it.
