Genuinely asking in mild of this… a flight was held up and an elected consultant stated “first class is my right”.
Was she placed on any no-fly record for inflicting a delay? We’re co-passengers who requested her persistent questions banned ? Does ANYONE have extra data? https://t.co/kbEB2XgzEa pic.twitter.com/uXhbBZXzsC
