U.S. reality television personality Savannah Crisley was barred from taking a Southwest Airlines flight after she had a heated argument with an employee about an unchecked bag. She said on her Instagram that she was about to board the plane from New York to Tennessee when the Southwest worker at the gate said she needed to check her bag. Crisley refused and got loud, swearing at the gate agent. A pilot who had been waiting at the gate came over to mediate. The gate agent refused to allow her to board the flight.
