26 SEPTEMBER 2017: BALTIMORE, MARYLAND

Anila Daulatzai, a 46-year-old college professor was forcefully removed from a Southwest flight to Los Angeles after she told crew that she had a ‘deadly allergy’ to dogs upon learning that two dogs – a pet and a service animal – would be travelling in the cabin. Daulatzai asked for the animals to be removed and then requested an allergy relief injection after her first request was denied. The woman, however, was not carrying a medical certificate so the injection could not be administered. Daulatzai was told that the airline’s policy is not to allow boarding to any passenger who cannot safely travel with dogs on board, and was therefore asked to deplane. She refused and law enforcement was called to remove her.
