Emilie De Ravin Does Not Play When It Comes To Touching Her Breast Pump

September 2, 2016 / Posted by:

Everything I’ve ever learned about flying while breastfeeding comes from two people: Alyssa Milano, who got mad at airport security at Heathrow in London for taking her breastmilk. And from the lady whose boobs were leaking while going through a pat-down in front of me on a midnight flight to Las Vegas and gave the TSA the best “deal with it” look. I know that flying and breastmilk are a combination that can sometimes end in drama, which is what happened to Emilie de Ravin.

E! News says that yesterday, Emilie (aka Claire from Lost or Belle from Once Upon a Time) was boarding an American Airlines flight from Los Angeles when an AA employee allegedly grabbed one of her carry-on bags. Emilie had a baby six months ago, and she brought a breast pump with her in her carry-on bag. Emilie decided to document the drama on Twitter, which doesn’t surprise me. I’m pretty sure 90% of Twitter is just frustrated passengers screaming their frustrations @ the airline who did them dirty.

Eventually one of the pilots of the flight intervened and Emilie was given back her bag with her pump in it and was allowed to board the plane. But Emilie is still extremely angry that her breast pump bag was manhandled like that, and she wants JUSTICE. Normally pissed-off airline passenger justice involves an airline stuffing discount flight vouchers or free sandwich coupons into the passengers hand until their anger goes away. But Emilie wants that AA employee fired.

TMZ adds a little more to this story. They say the drama started because Emilie tried to bring three carry-on bags on with her on an at-capacity flight, and the AA employee wanted to tag and check the one with her breast pump inside. Emilie wasn’t having it because a breast pump is considered a medical device. TMZ says that American Airlines has apologized to Emilie and are investigating the situation.

Emilie has a lot of say about this situation, and yet she never answers the most important question. Did this happen in First Class or Economy? Emilie is an actress on a network TV show, so you’d think she’s at that level where she’s now a board-first-and-get-a-blanket type. If this did happen in First Class, maybe that employee was just trying to upgrade her pump to something fancier and more First Class-appropriate? “Ma’am, we can’t have your cheap SoftSlurp up in the upscale world of First Class. Let me throw that trash out and get you a complimentary Petite Snob Extracteur du Lait.
