Another day, another person
in the news being removed (often forcibly) from an airplane. Usually it's pretty easy to pick a side; however this time it gets a little messy.
Passengers had already boarded when a woman approached airline staff to ask if two dogs could be removed because she has a life-threatening allergy.
One animal was on board as an "emotional support animal," the other is a pet and according to the airline's policy, they could not be removed from the flight along with their owners. The woman then said she would like to stay on the flight but with her allergy which was a huge liability. So, the airline explained the situation and asked her to deplane but she refused.
A series of events ended with the woman being forcibly picked up and moved by police who then told her to "walk" to which she responded with putting up a fight and screaming "don't touch me!"
Other passengers had mixed feelings about the situation, some saying the woman was "not trying" to walk and the man who took a video of the whole debacle said, "It was a no-win situation, for sure."
Another woman agreed with the airline's decision but said it was unfortunate it had to become such a violent encounter for the woman.
In the end, we're not sure how to feel either!
