Woman, 72, kicked off Delta plane for looking sick


ORLANDO, Fla. - A 72-year-old woman hopes she never has to fly Delta again after she said she was kicked off her flight because she looked sick.

Suzanne Hays was ready to take off on her connecting flight from Detroit to Orlando when a passenger complained about her to the crew.

She said they asked her to move, fearing she was contagious, but then she was eventually asked to get off the plane.

“They were acting like I had leprosy. It was awful. I have never been treated like that in my life,” Hays said.

Hays has white mass disease, a neurological disorder which makes her skin look very pale.

Delta officials said they weren’t aware of the incident until recently and are currently investigating.
