Olivia Culpo hit JetBlue after the airline banned her dog from taking her return flight, forcing the former Miss USA to cancel her return flight to see her parents infected with COVID-19.
Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Culpo model posted a video on Instagram of herself crying over the incident, alongside her dog, Oliver.
“I’m sure I’m not the only one who ran away crying at the airport, but it was the worst experience I’ve ever had,” she said. “I just want to be able to go home. ”
“When both of your parents have COVID and you try to get home to help them, but all of a sudden your dog who was already pre-approved isn’t allowed to fly with you.
“I never wanted to be that person and have always been the biggest @jetblue fan but I’m so so upset right now. He has flown this airline so many times and that has never been a problem, ”Culpo wrote on his Instagram post.

Jet Blue did not explain why the dog was not able to board the flight as before, but suggested that this may have been because the dog was not a trained service animal, Fox reports Business.
The airline said in a statement: “At any time during a trip, our crew members can ask legally permitted questions and confirm the qualifications of a trained service animal. We are working to consistently enforce these policies, however, a client may be prevented from traveling at any time if it is determined that an animal does not meet the required qualifications. ‘
