Woman Claims She Was Forced Off An Emirates Flight For Complaining About Period Pains


A 24-year-old woman has claimed she and her boyfriend were removed from an Emirates flight barely minutes before it taxied down the strip because she had cramps following the visit of her monthly period..
Beth Evans and her boyfriend, who were headed for Dubai, said they were talking about it, when a flight attendant overheard their discussion and made sure they were ordered off the $560 flight.
However, Emirates, in its statement, said that Beth was "offloaded" due to "a medical emergency" after she "alerted the crew onboard" about suffering pain and "mentioned that she was feeling unwell"
"The passenger alerted the crew onboard that she was suffering from discomfort and pain and mentioned that she was feeling unwell.
"The captain made the decision to request medical support and offload Ms. Evans so she could access medical assistance as needed.
However, Beth was not amused with that explanation as she said the pains she felt were mild.
Her boyfriend, while speaking to the Sun, said that they were forced to pay extra USD700 (RM2,738) to book themselves on another flight out to Dubai.
He said: "To be kicked off for period pains, it was madness. Beth was in tears and getting upset when the hostess was asking her questions.
"It's embarrassing to have to explain about period pains when it's being overheard.
"They didn't have anyone look her over. They just contacted a medical team in the US and they said Beth couldn't fly," the boyfriend was quoted as saying by the Sun.
