Emilie de Ravin Asks American Airlines To Fire Rude Employee

Emilie de Ravin, who plays “Belle” on Once Upon A Time, is asking American Airlines to fire a rude employee she recently encountered.

On Thursday afternoon, Emilie went on Twitter to explain the situation. The 34-year-old actress said that a female employee became physical when she tried to take her breast pump on the flight.

American Airlines sent a statement to Us Weekly:

We saw the tweets and we are looking into the issue, and we do apologize to the customer for the inconvenience. Just to clarify the policy, we absolutely welcome breast pumps on board the aircraft. In fact, they do not count against your carry on baggage. So normally you’re allowed one bag and a personal item aboard the aircraft, but a breast pump we consider a medical device so that is allowed in addition. We will have our Customer Relations reach out to [Emilie de Ravin].

American Airlines also responded to Emilie through Twitter:

Emilie welcomed her first child, Vera Audrey, in March, with her boyfriend Eric Bilitch. The couple confirmed their engagement this summer.

The actress will reprise her role as “Belle,” when Once Upon A Time returns this fall on September 25.
