  • Culp said she wanted to travel home to visit her COVID sick mom and dad
  • Claims dog was pre-approved to fly, then suddenly wasn’t despite taking the dog on two separate JetBlue flights in May

Olivia Culpo has hit out at JetBlue after the airline banned her dog from her flight home, forcing the former Miss USA to cancel her flight home to see her COVID-19 infected parents. 

Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover model Culpo posted a video to Instagram of herself crying over the incident, alongside her dog, Oliver. 

‘I’m sure I’m not the only one who ran away crying at the airport, but it’s the worst experience I’ve ever had,’ she said. ‘I just want to be able to go home.’ 

‘When both your parents have COVID and you’re trying to get home to help them but suddenly your dog who was already pre approved is not allowed to fly with you.

‘I have never wanted to be this person and I have always been the hugest @jetblue fan but I am just soooo so so upset right now. He has flown on this airline so many times and it’s never been an issue,’ Culpo wrote on her Instagram post.

She also shared photos of her and her dog flying on two separate JetBlue flights in May. 

Culpo later appeared back at her home and was seen practicing the cello. 

Jet Blue has not explained why the dog was unable to board the flight like before, but suggested it may have had to do with the fact that the dog is not a trained service animal, Fox Business reports.  

The airline said in a statement: ‘At any time while traveling, our crewmembers may ask legally allowed questions and confirm the qualifications of a trained service animal. We work to consistently enforce these policies, however, a customer may be stopped from proceeding with travel at any point if it is determined an animal does not meet the required qualifications.’

Culpo said she unwound after the JetBlue incident by playing the cello in her room. Fans were quick to notice the model was bothered by what had happened
