Delta Air Lines apologizes to Busy Philipps after actress slams them for booking her and her daughter on separate flights
After Philipps' tweet, Delta Air explained that the pair was originally booked under separate itineraries - the exact reason why they were rebooked on two different routes.
There ain't no wrath like a mommy's wrath and the mommy in actress Busy Philipps is visibly outraged. On the receiving end of her anger is Delta Air Lines who have now apologized to the star after she called them out on Friday for reportedly trying to separate her from her young child on a flight to Minnesota.
As per Philipps, the carrier had canceled her and her nine-year-old - Birdie Leigh's - flights and then rebooked the two on two separate planes. And that's not all - both the planes were lying to two different locations!
“Hey @Delta! Thanks for canceling my flight and then rerouting us and separating my MINOR child onto a different flight than mine and having a 2 HR call time wait! You are terrible!” Philipps shared on her Twitter in a post that has been since deleted, as People reported.
Post Philipps' tweet, Delta airlines explained that the pair was originally booked under separate itineraries - the exact reason why they were rebooked on two different routes. “We apologize for the inconvenience this caused Ms. Philipps. Delta worked quickly to resolve the rebooking issue and coordinated directly with the customer to adjust their travel,” read Delta's statement to Fox News.
In her Instagram story, Philipps also shared that she “got a text that our other flight was canceled and they had rerouted us and put us on different planes to different places.” She followed it up stating that she was scheduled to go to St. Paul, Minnesota, while her daughter, “B was going to Detroit,” People reported.
The 39-year-old "Freaks and Geeks" actress, who also had her 4-year-old daughter, Cricket Pearl, in tow on her journey, was never actually separated from her daughter, but at the same time, she was reportedly unable to get a flight for the entire family until 2:30 in the morning. As per the airliner's statement, Delta refunded the unused portion of the family's travel arrangement.
Philipps - who is quite well known for her incredibly entertaining Instagram feed - had also made headlines earlier last month for sharing her views on body image/confidence.
Speaking to Health magazine about the one thing she hardly shares with her one million Instagram followers, Philipps said: "I get so angry that I’m always hard on myself, and the things that I fundamentally hold to be true as a feminist somehow do not apply to me. This is me being very honest, because I would love to tell you, like, 'Oh my God, I love my body, and I’m so happy all the time with the way I look.' But...I don’t."
Giving some interesting opinions on how to deal with negative thoughts, she added: "Well, I really hate what I call 'my ruined stomach' from [giving birth to] my two daughters.... I’m so unbelievably lucky. I’ve had so many friends who have gone through fertility issues and have struggled to carry their own children—and here I am pregnant right away both times, with two beautiful, healthy kids. And so what that they ruined my lower stomach?! Like, I’ll live, you know? I’m gonna wear this wrinkly skin with a lot of pride."
