“Real Housewives of Atlanta” fans got a major shock this week when Kandi Burruss revealed online that she and her husband, Todd Tucker, were kicked off their flight to Hawaii for allegedly causing a disturbance. Now, the airline has finally responded to Burruss’ claims and is partially admitting their fault in the fiasco.
As previously reported, Burruss posted an Instagram video yesterday in which she explained that she and Tucker and their two friends were kicked off their Hawaiian Airlines flight from Honolulu to Maui after a gate ticketer claimed their was an issue with their ticket.
“#HawaiianAirlines just kicked us off for no reason. This was so crazy & random! We were sitting in our seat & the gate ticketer came on & asked to see my ticket because it wasn’t showing up in their system. I gave him my ticket but it had our baggage claim checks on the back. He never brought it back & the plane started rolling off. I asked the flight attendant where was my ticket & told him I needed the baggage claim ticket just in case my bags didn’t make the flight. The flight attendant left & came back & said the pilot was calling to check & then the next thing I know this lady comes on the plane & said she needed Todd & I to get off the plane because we caused some sort of commotion. Really???? I barely said a word to that flight attendant. Everybody sitting around us was like what are they talking about! This s–t is crazy,” Burruss captioned the photo.
Not surprisingly, fans were in an uproar over the matter and blasted Hawaiian Airlines for kicking Burruss and Tucker off the flight for no apparent reason.
Well, according to recent reports, Hawaiian Airlines spokeswoman Alison Croyle recently opened up about the incident and claimed that Burruss and her husband weren’t kicked off the flight. Croyle claims that not too long after Burruss and Tucker boarded flight 526, the ticketer noticed a technical issue with their boarding pass in the system.
An employee came over to the reality TV couple and asked to check their boarding passes. However, Croyle claims that the employee forgot to return their boarding passes and baggage claim tickets.
However, as Burruss previously stated, the plane eventually began take off but Croyle claims that flight attendants reassured Burruss and Tucker that they wouldn’t have any issue claiming their luggage.
However, this is where things get sticky because Croyle claims that someone in Burruss’ crew got irate and demanded that they be let off the plane. However, Burruss claims that they were ordered to deplane because of an alleged commotion. In the end, Burruss and her crew got off the plane. Thankfully, though, they boarded another plane 45 minutes later.
Who do you believe? Croyle or Burruss? Let us know in the comments.
