Let me start by saying I have cel phone video of this whole event! I was blocked from boarding a plane. I had been stranded in Atlanta overnight. Next day when i got to Denver I asked to board the plane priority because I felt exhausted and hadnt slept. She called police and doctor to check me out. Got my blood pressure tested and missed my flight. They said i could board on next plane but refused and told me to get another carrier after i told them i was gonna sue for humiliating me. I was told to lawyer up and excorted out of the airport. Obviously I incured massive cost with last minute ticket and big time. humiliation.
