Glam rocker Dee Snider has slammed Avianca Airlines for sharing sensitive info & judging his daughter’s appearance. He tweeted saying:
“They refused to allow Cheyenne Snider to board her flight because her passport was “not on point” and was “too ‘wrinkled.'” He went on to accuse Avianca of “clearly exhibiting bias” toward his “very goth-looking daughter” because of her appearance.
In response, Avianca tweeted:
“About the case of the passenger Cheyenne Jean Snider, we report she was not allowed to board her flight because her passport, identity document to travel was deteriorated. Even the passenger admitted she had put it into the washing machine.
“As is stipulated in international regulations, it is necessary for the passengers to present their original documents, which has to be valid and in good condition to be able to travel. Otherwise, the airline is authorized to not allow the boarding.
“Avianca has always been rigorous and demanding with the presentation and the good conditions of travel documents. As an airline, we are regulated by international aeronautical authorities and any omission of this rule could bring on a fine by not complying with the regulations.”
Dee further responded saying:
