Chiu ended his thread with a sarcastic recommendation: “If you’re sick before a flight, wait.”

Her problems continued after Chiu said she was rushed off the plane, realizing she had left her money on board with the people she was traveling with.

A WestJet supervisor refused to give him money for a taxi. He posted a photo of the supervisor looking upset and said he “burst into tears” after they became aggressive, calling him an “asshole.”

Chiu claimed he was recording their interaction.

“This @WestJet supervisor said unless I deleted the video I wouldn’t be able to get on a flight tomorrow.”

A “nicer” employee then spoke to her but “refused to give her a booking reference for my booked flight.”

“She told me to go back to the airport tomorrow and ask at the counter,” Chiu added, saying she was “legitimately worried about being arrested.”

Finally, he claimed that WestJet sent him a direct message with his reservation reference number.

Chiu said she was quickly taken off the plane and realized she had left her money on board with the people she was traveling with.

Chiu announced Sunday that he had finally arrived home to Vancouver and warned travelers to “check if your destination is known for stomach viruses.”

“The passenger was sick and as such should not have flown,” said one social media user.

‘It appears that this issue may have resulted in the passenger having to occupy the bathroom for the entire return flight, or at times when “in the seat” is required for safety. Good call, poorly communicated.’

She said they immediately contacted Chiu after her X thread to provide her with more accommodation.
