Airline Passenger With First Class Ticket Says She Was Bumped for Congresswoman

The airline passenger who says she was bumped from her seat to make room for a congresswoman is giving her side of the story. Teacher Jean-Marie Simon says she booked a first class seat on a flight from Houston to Washington, D.C. She showed Inside Edition a boarding pass that read “First Class, Seat 1A.” But when she went to board, a United gate agent told her, “You've been wiped from the system, I can't even find your reservation,” Simon told Inside Edition.
