Savannah Chrisley recently opened up about her experience being kicked off a Southwest Airlines flight last month. On Tuesday’s episode of her podcast, “Unlocked,” the “Chrisley Knows Best” alum, 25, gave further details about the incident.
Chrisley explained that she had gotten into a verbal altercation with an employee after he told her that she would need to check her bag because there was no overhead space left. She refused, telling him that she would like to see for herself first, before dubbing him “an a–hole.” After insulting him, she proceeded to get kicked off the plane. However, she tried to rectify the situation by apologizing. She said, “I told the attendant, ‘You know what? We all have tough days. Clearly, you’re in a mood. I’m in a mood. I apologize. I should not have called you an as–hole. Let’s check my bag.”
Chrisley noted that she had lost her cool because she wanted to get home to her niece, 10-year-old Chloe, whom she recently got custody of. Her parents, Todd and Julie Chrisley, originally had custody before being sentenced to a combined 19 years in prison for tax evasion and fraud. Despite admitting that she was late to board the plane and had asked an exception be made for her bag, Savannah said that she doesn’t feel like she’s “better than anyone else.”
A rep for Southwest Airlines told Page Six that Savannah “repeatedly insulted several employees.” The spokesperson also claimed that the former beauty queen “arrived at the gate late in the boarding process and was asked to gate-check her bag due [to] the overhead bins being full and to avoid delaying the more than 100 passengers already onboard the aircraft.” Southwest concluded that they were aware of Savannah’s Instagram videos and is “looking into the situation.”
Savannah Chrisley blamed her impatience for being kicked off a Southwest flight last month. She admitted that she wasn’t her “most patient self” and apologized for calling the attendant an “a–hole.” The reality star was not allowed to board her flight because she refused to check her carry-on bag.
