Hasn’t the staff of American Airlines seen Four Weddings and a Funeral? Groundhog Day? St. Elmo’s Fire?
Clearly not, otherwise how could they have bumped Andie MacDowell from First Class?
McDowell expressed her displeasure with American on Friday afternoon after the airline placed her in what she referred to as “tourist” class, even though she paid for a first-class seat.
The actress, who took selfies with fans in “tourist” class, claimed that she was placed in the economy section because she brought her dog, who she pre-booked and paid for.
MacDowell insisted that she be reimbursed for the flight.
When critics on Twitter mocked the actress for her First World problems, she retorted that she did not book First Class for her, rather for her rescue dog.
While it is admirable to want her dog to have free champagne and adequate food service, any dog that is flying in the human cabin of a plane is typically at ease. I’ve never encountered a dog who minded “tourist class.”
MacDowell also promised that if she were reimbursed by the airline, the money would go to charity.
