A woman and her boyfriend have criticized airline company Emirates for removing them from a flight to Dubai after the woman complained of menstrual pain.
Beth Evans, 24, and her boyfriend Joshua Moran, 26, were travelling from Birmingham to Dubai aboard the A380 jet of Emirates. The couple said that a flight crew overheard Evans say that she was suffering from menstrual pain and began questioning her.
A couple of minutes later, the crew asked the couple to leave the plane; stating that Evans needed medical assessment for the seven-hour journey.
She had described her pain as “one out of ten”, according to reports, and she felt she would able to endure the seven hour flight. However, without a doctor present to make a decision, the airline couldn’t take the risk of carrying the woman on the lengthy flight.
A spokesman for Emirates said that they would not want to endanger Evans health by delaying medical help had she worsened during the flight.
