A woman booked a short flight to Florida…but somehow ended up in Jamaica.

Beverly Ellis-Hebard flies regularly between her two homes in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and Jacksonville, Florida.

She was waiting at the gate of a Frontier Airlines flight to Jacksonville on November 6 last year when she decided to use the restroom.

“I fly once every six weeks.” “I chose Frontier flights because we flew so often,” she told ABC7.

Beverly made sure she had time due to her recent back surgery, meaning she couldn’t move quickly, and was told she had 20 minutes until boarding.

But she claims when she got back the flight was almost on board and the gate was closing.

As she boarded the plane, an employee asked if her bag was the right size, and she placed it in the baggage sizer.

Beverly said, “I put it in, and when I took it out, my arm was all busted here.” I was bleeding.’

She said she was then taken to board and was told by an attendant, “She said, ‘Come on, come on. Give me your boarding pass.'”

“I would say I took about ten steps and she said, ‘Are you Beverly Ellis-Hebard?’

“I said, ‘You just had my boarding pass. you just checked me in Yes.’ She said, ‘Okay, go. Go.’

As she took her seat, a staff member helped her with her arm injury and told her that she would soon be able to relax in Jamaica.

Beverly said: “I laughed. I said, “I’d like to go there, but I have a beach where I live.”

“She said, ‘Look at me. This plane is going to Jamaica.’ And I knew from the look on her face that she wasn’t kidding.’

Beverly then discovered that the gate had been changed at the last minute and said she was told, ‘You are entering another country without a passport.’ That’s bad.’

A flight from Philadelphia to Jamaica takes almost four hours non-stop, but a trip to Florida would have taken just over two hours.

She said she wanted an apology from Frontier Airlines for the incident.

She said, “It should never have happened because I didn’t have a passport.” “The woman at the gate wasn’t doing her job.”

Beverly was permitted by Jamaican authorities to wait on the airlift, and cabin crew stayed with her until the next flight to Philadelphia a few hours later.

Metro has reached out to Frontier Airlines for comment.
