AceShowbiz - Savannah Chrisley called out Southwest Airlines for allegedly forcing her to get off a flight. Making use of her social media account on Thursday, April 20, the daughter of Todd Chrisley told her side of the story.
Breaking down the alleged incident that took place at New York City's John F. Kennedy airport, Savannah revealed that she was on her way to head home to Tennessee. At one point, the reality star got into an argument with an airline attendant when the staff member was checking her carry-on bag.
"Alright guys, so I officially know why everyone hates Southwest so much. I mean absolutely hates it - the worst thing in the entire world," the "Chrisley Knows Best" star said on Instagram Story before zooming in on a Southwest employee. "This man right here - awful. I went to board my flight and he told me that I had to check my bag. I was like, 'OK, if you wouldn't mind, I'm going to take my bag on the flight, see if I can't make it fit and if not, I'll check it.' "
Savannah claimed that she was told that she couldn't take her luggage with her. When she asked the attendant about the decision, she was dubbed an "unruly passenger" before a pilot came in to help.
The "Growing Up Chrisley" alum explained, "The Southwest attendant literally looked at the pilot - the man who was flying our plane and is responsible for our safety - and said stay out of it." The "Unlocked" podcast host added, "Now, I'm not going to lie, when this Southwest attendant told the pilot to calm down, I told him that there was no need for him to be an a**hole today and then he threw me off the flight."
When she told the attendant that she "absolutely" needed to get home to look after her 10-year-old niece Chloe, Savannah claimed that the Southwest attendant told her, "I don't care." Savannah continued, "I told him that I hope he finds a better purpose for his life. Maybe I shouldn't have said it, but the devil came over me and Jesus did not come out."
Before concluding her lengthy message, Savannah praised the "good looking" pilot who defended her, "Southwest you're awful, but to the pilot who stood up for me and was a real good-looking guy - my hat goes off to you. You're great. Maybe switch airlines," adding that the airline "sucks" though their pilot was "kinda hot." Savannah eventually got to go home via a connecting flight through Baltimore.
Southwest Airlines has yet to comment on the drama.
