(FIRSTCOASTNEWS) — JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Suzanne Hays, 72, is soft spoken but don’t be fooled by her demeanor. On August 5 Hays was traveling from Akron, Ohio to Orlando.

Hays had a flight change in Detroit and that change has become an experience she would like to forget.

“I was begging them not to throw me off the plane,” said Hays.

Before Flight 19 would depart from Detroit to Orlando there was a problem. Hays said a passenger who was next to her decided to talk to the airline crew about her looking tired and drowsy.

“Then she came back and said they’ve moved us because I might be contagious,” said Hays. “Contagious with what?” she wondered.
