Two Kelowna Residents Sue Swoop Airline, Claiming Racism And Defamation
On August 10, 2022, Batiste and Henry were all set to fly home to Kelowna. Initially, the couple were not seated beside one another until someone offered to switch seats. A flight attendant, only named as Hannah, took issue with the switch, claiming that switching seats before take-off wasn’t permitted due to weight and balance issues.
She went on to explain that Batiste would be charged for switching seats to which Batiste agreed she would pay. The lawsuit went on to explain that despite this, the flight attendant’s supervisor was called. Hannah had allegedly accused Batiste of giving her attitude.
