Prior to leaving town, she was able to squeeze in one last event —the Broward Republican Executive Community’s monthly meeting—before heading to the airport and checking in her luggage.
Nasrin arrived at the gate and was ready to board her flight at 9:25pm, which was scheduled to depart at 9:33pm.
The door to the jetway was open, and two Spirit Airlines ticketing agents had just let a man go through.
Wearing her MAGA hat and shirt, Nasrin showed them her ticket, and they told her that she would have to get another ticket. They would not allow her to board.
Her luggage was on the plane, a passenger had just entered the jetway, and yet the two agents stared at her clothes with obvious disdain as they informed her, “We can’t do anything for you. You’re too late.”
Nasrin then went to customer service, who told her, “You had to have been there before 9:30.”
She told them, “I was there at 9:25!” And then they were quiet.
Nearly in tears, Nasrin called her manager, Ben Bennett, and asked him to come and get her from the airport.
She was rebooked on a flight for the next day.
“Being in Florida has been like a dream for me, I have never been treated with so much kindness!” says Nasrin. “But going to the airport in my Trump clothes was another story. Some people were staring at me, and there were others who were actually shielding their eyes! A couple of men told me, ‘Good job,’ but most people looked angry. The Spirit employees were very unfriendly. I couldn’t believe that they wouldn’t let me on the plane when I was there on time!”
Nasrin Mohammadi met Israeli Pastor Steven Khoury and talked about the current problems in the Middle East.
