Savannah Chrisley says she was barred from taking a Southwest Airlines flight after a heated argument with an employee … and it all stemmed from an unchecked bag.
The “Chrisley Knows Best” star took to Instagram Thursday to detail on video what happened, explaining that she was about to board the plane from New York to Tennessee when the Southwest worker at the gate said she needed to check her bag.
Chrisley responded that she wanted to take her luggage on the flight to see if it would fit in the overhead bin, but the employee said she couldn’t.
After she pushed back a bit, Chrisley says the employee labeled her an “unruly passenger” and a pilot — who was standing nearby — came over to try to calm the situation.
But the employee turned to the pilot and stated, “Stay out of it … ma’am you’re not flying on this flight,’” meaning Chrisley.
Pissed, Chrisley says she called the worker an asshole, and then tried to reason with him by pointing out that she had to get home to be with her 10-year-old niece Chloe.
But the worker was undeterred, saying, “I don’t care,” according to Chrisley, who added, “So Southwest, you’re awful but not going to lie … your pilot was kinda hot.”
Chrisley says she finally boarded a late flight and arrived home in Tennessee around 2 am.
As you probably know, Chrisley’s parents — Todd and Julie — were convicted last June of tax evasion and defrauding community banks to the tune of $30 million. Both are currently serving a combined 19 years in seperate federal prisons.
