Mayim Bialik didn’t exactly have an enjoyable experience attempting to fly the friendly skies.
The Big Bang Theory star called out an employee of United Airlines after the woman refused to let her on the plane. On Twitter Sunday, Bialik blasted the “flight attendant who shut the boarding gate” in her face after she “saw my carry on suitcase.” (Bialik likely meant to call out the gate agent, not flight attendant.)
To the @UnitedAirlines flight attendant who shut the boarding gate in my face. I made my connecting flight in Houston. it was a tight squeeze but You said there were plenty of open seats. when you saw my carry on suitcase you said there was no room and shut the door in my face.

The 43-year-old actress tagged United in a follow-up tweet, writing, “This is about humanity. She didn’t even say she was sorry. I’m sorry I flew your airline.” United replied, although it’s unclear if any direct messages were exchanged.
But Bialik continued to vent publicly wondering why her “little suitcase” couldn’t fit on the flight. Apparently, her first class ticket granted her no favors.
And also why couldn’t my little suitcase somehow fit? Maybe the first class seat I was supposed to sit in could have held it and I would have gladly sat in all of the open seats anywhere on that plane.
