Abby Lee Miller is not too pleased with American Airlines.

On Sunday, the Dance Moms star shared that she had fallen out of her wheelchair at the Pittsburgh Airport after a flight on American Airlines. Miller shared the story via an Instagram photo that showed her lying on the floor and clinging to her wheelchair.

"Help! 'I’ve fallen and I can’t get up' isn’t that the truth? Let’s just say my transfer from the Isle [sic] Chair to my own chair didn’t go so well," Miller wrote in the caption of her photo. "The move should’ve happened on the bridge like usual and not in front of a hundred ppl waiting to board, I shouldn’t have had to ask for someone to call the paramedics and maybe the @americanair Gate Mgr should’ve at the very least asked if I was ok?"

Luckily, Miller was able to find the one bright spot in this terrifying ordeal: a hot fireman.

"Thank you to all the Pgh international Airport Escorts that were so very kind & the hot firemen who swiftly got me on my feet, into my chair & on my way," she wrote.

Following the post, Miller received an outpouring of well wishes and concerns from fans and former dancers, including Dance Moms season 8 cast members Elliana Walmsley and Brady Farrar.

In the comment section of her post, Miller wrote, "I'm stiff and my body aches. My right hip & knee banged up. Right shoulder is sore."

In a statement to Landcruisers, a rep from American Airlines apologized to Miller.

"We are concerned by the issues raised by Ms. Miller regarding her recent experience at Pittsburgh International Airport and are working with our team at PIT and our contracted special assistance vendor to review the incident. We have been in touch with Ms. Miller to apologize and are providing her a full refund as a result of her experience."

Miller didn't let the experience keep her down. On Tuesday, the 52-year-old shared via InstaStory that she was embarking on another flight: this time with United Airlines. Though she left the flight without any bumps and bruises, Miller shared that her wheelchair broke during the trip.

"So United didn’t break me,” she wrote, adding a praying hand emoji. “Thank goodness, they just broke my wheelchair!"

Luckily, as Miller shared in a separate post, an United Airlines worker was able to fix the chair with no problem.
