ASHEVILLE, N.C. - A Florida woman says an airline worker at a North Carolina airport refused to allow her to fly home with an oxygen tank because she didn't have the proper paperwork.
Seventy-eight-year-old Jane Graham-Bailey of Jensen Beach, Fla., told the Asheville Citizen-Times she hoped to board a flight in Asheville to go home in time for an Easter dinner with her family, after visiting her daughter in North Carolina.
Allegiant spokeswoman Jessica Wheeler said Graham-Bailey was denied passage because she didn't have a required physician consent form for the oxygen tank. Wheeler says the airline's rules are based on FAA regulations.
Graham-Bailey says no one asked for paperwork when she flew from Florida to North Carolina. She plans to fly home Sunday from a Tennessee airport and was awaiting a physician consent form.
