DENVER -- A Denver woman claims she couldn’t board a flight from Wyoming to Denver because of her gender. Jennifer Winning makes the flight from the small airport of Rock Springs, WY to Denver often, but on January 29th it was different.
“They wouldn`t let me get on the plane because I`m female,” Winning said.
She said she checked in and arrived at security about 35 minutes before the scheduled departure of her United flight.
TSA is blaming Delta. This is a very small airport. They just saw here at the check-in desk. And they closed the flight without her? Other press coverage says Winning went outside and waited for her plane to land, thinking it would land and she would go inside. It landed, she went inside, and TSA is saying the flight was closed by Delta. Winning says she had a lengthly converstation with TSA agent who told her if she was a man he would screen her. She watched her fellow passengers board the plane. TB
