Woman, 24, and her boyfriend are ordered off £400 Emirates flight to Dubai after an air hostess overheard her complain she had PERIOD PAINS

A WOMAN and her boyfriend have blasted airline Emirates for booting them off a plane because she had period pains.
Beth Evans, 24, and Joshua Moran, 26, were ordered to leave a £400 flight to Dubai just minutes before take-off.

The couple said a stewardess overheard teaching assistant Beth complain that she had stomach pains caused by a painful period.
Beth described the pain as “one out of ten” when sitting down, and was happy to make the seven-hour flight from Birmingham airport.
But without a doctor on the scene, Emirates crew decided the couple must unfasten their seatbealts and get off the A380 jet.
Furious Beth and Joshua had to spend £250 each to rebook their holiday flights.

Joshua said: “To be kicked off for period pains, it was madness.
“Beth was in tears and getting upset when the hostess was asking her questions.
"It’s embarrassing to have to explain about period pains when it’s being overheard.”
Barber Joshua, of Birmingham, added: “They didn’t have anyone look her over.
"They just contacted a medical team in the US and they said Beth couldn’t fly.”

A spokesman for the airline said of Saturday’s incident: “The passenger alerted crew that she was suffering from discomfort and pain and mentioned she was feeling unwell.
"The captain made the decision to request medical support and offload Ms Evans so she could access medical assistance.
“We would not have wanted to endanger Ms Evans by delaying medical help had she worsened during the flight.”
