This scenario sounds extremely plausible to me:

Quote from: gabe_e12 February 5, 2018 8:24 pm at 8:24 pm[/size
I’m reading between the lines…..the writer was delaying her boarding as long as possible so as to allow time for her husband to make it. When her husband told her to go ahead and board she still wanted to try to drag it out long enough for her husband to make the flight. The gate attendants needed to board all traveling passengers before boarding the standbys. She was delaying boarding, finally the frustrated gate attendant decided she wouldn’t put up with her anymore and she started to fuss because she was now ready to board. Well she missed that opportunity, and the gate attendant went back to her job of boarding the stand by passengers, refusing to deal with this pain in the neck anymore. Once she saw she wasn’t getting anywhere she started making a ruckus and insisting on getting the gate attendant to meet her demands, leaving an already frustrated gate attendant to call security to extricate herself from a passenger who feels entitled, when there’s no reason for her to have to defend her actions. Granted she got a bad break with security, but the rest of the story smells like she’s blaming a gate attendant for not giving in to her shenanigans.

Story is horribly written, I couldn't get through half of it.

Can someone tell me what happened?

This story likely has some truths. There is an airline called Jetblue. This woman likely did go on vacation to Orlando with her family. Someone else did write about long security lines at MCO. And I'm assuming they do have relatives in Miami.

That's probably about it.

Jetblue is very clear that they close the door 15 minutes before, no "ifs, ands or buts". I learned the hard way on my Virgin/Jetblue Mileage run. Missed it by a minute because of "Even more Speed" TSA Pre line was slower than regular line. Thats life. You miss a flight you take the next one.

She wanted to travel as a "family", too bad. Its a 2 hour flight for goodness sakes.

Lesson: Dont book the closest flight to shabbos.
Lesson: Leave room for error.
Lesson: ...
I love the last minute $1145 OW tickets from Miami to NYC
...and learn how to book cheaper tickets.

Wow. Really puts a different spin on it. But like others said, the handling of the situation by the cops was horrible.also, even if this is the truth, the question is if she was ever actually told that "ma'am if you do not board now we will start standby boarding". According to her story they never said anything like that.
Also, what about the agents name being a secret and not being allowed to take pictures? That sounds like bs to me. Lawyers opine?
