Two sisters said they were humiliated when Allegiant Air kicked them off a flight, claiming they were a threat. While the plane was waiting to leave the tarmac, Hartman’s sister got a text message saying their father only had hours to live. Hartman said she started having a panic attack and the situation only escalated from there, when Baker confronted the flight attendant for not being compassionate. “She said, ‘You’re being very rude. My father is dying and I’m comforting her’ – and they said she needed to keep her personal problems off the plane,” Hartman said. Minutes later, the sisters said, the flight attendant called the captain, the plane turned around and airport security escorted them off the flight.
