A US woman Jenna Longoria, travelling from San Francisco to Austin, was removed from a United Airlines flight along with her 16-month-old toddler after a pronoun mix-up. Longoria recounted on social media that she mistakenly used the wrong pronoun for a flight attendant, leading to an escalated situation. "They are now forbidding us from boarding the plane," she shared, expressing feelings of being singled out and humiliated. Despite her immediate apology and explanation, she, her son, and her mother were denied boarding. United Airlines have refuted her claims and said that Longoria's family was barred due to exceeding the carry-on baggage limit, a claim Longoria disputed on Instagram. The incident began when she accidentally misgendered a flight attendant while thanking them for boarding passes. United Airlines later stated that the matter was resolved and the family took a subsequent flight. United's policy allows one carry-on and one personal item per passenger, within size restrictions.
