Early reports show the passenger in the video stated that she had a life-threatening pet allergy, but she was not able to provide the medical certificate essential to complete travel. There were one emotional support animal and one pet onboard the airplane. Our policy states that a Customer (without a medical certificate) may be deprived of boarding if they report a serious allergic reaction and cannot fly safely with an animal onboard.
Our Flight Crew made repeated efforts to explain the situation to the Customer, however, she refused to deplane and law enforcement became involved.”
