American Airlines sold Iggy Azalea’s seats because she ‘arrived to airport 30 minutes before flight’

Iggy Azalea ‘arrived at airport a HALF HOUR before her flight’ and that’s why American Airlines sold her seats

Four-time Grammy nominee Iggy Azalea blasted American Airlines for allegedly stranding herself and her child without luggage in Florida last Monday.

But according to staff working at the Miami International Airport, the Australian 31-year-old arrived late to the terminal at 5:30pm for a 6pm flight to Los Angeles.

‘She was able to check her bags and go through security, but someone in her party got held up going through TSA,’ a source told TMZ on Sunday.

‘Boarding ended 15 minutes before departure, which left Iggy and co. only 15 minutes to check baggage, get through security, and get to the gate. And, when she finally reached the gate, the door had already closed.’

Iggy (born Amethyst Kelly) had insisted that ‘the airplane was still boarding when we got to the gate’ but they still ‘sold our seats’ and ‘refused to take our bags off the plane.’

‘I feel this was handled very unprofessionally and without any care or compassion,’ Azalea – who boasts 45.6M social media followers – wrote.

‘I explained why stranding me is one thing but taking a [baby’s] luggage is pretty s***. There’s stuff he really needs. They do not care.
