A blind woman claims she and her guide dog were asked to leave an American Airlines plane after an employee called her "a danger to the flight."
According to the Portland Press-Herald and WLBZ, Sue Martin, 61, of Franklin, Maine, was traveling to San Diego earlier this month when she tried to take a connecting flight with her husband and service dog from Washington, D.C., to Dallas.
Martin told the Press-Herald that the trouble began when she realized there was no room for her dog, a German shepherd named Quan, near her seat. She then asked a flight attendant and ticketing agent about switching seats or upgrading to first-class but was denied, the Press-Herald reported.
