'Glee' actress blames airline for refusing to let pooch board plane

Kristin Chenoweth has blasted American Airlines after they refused to let her dog board a flight.

The Glee actress took to her Twitter account to complain about her trip "from hell" after she was told she didn't have the right paperwork to take her Maltese Maddie on the plane and was reduced to tears by a "verbally abusive" supervisor, according to gossip website TMZ.

Kristin tweeted: "American Airlines: Dallas flight attnt supservisor: Ms Kidwell. Abuse not ok. #tripfromhell (sic)."

After the company saw its error, they offered the actress their apologies and refunded the US $125 cabin pet charge.

A spokesperson said: "We hope she will consider flying American again in the future."

Last year Kristin was rushed to hospital after being injured on the set of The Good Wife.

The 44-year-old actress was hit by a piece of the lighting equipment while shooting a scene on Kent Avenue in the Williamsburg area of Brooklyn and taken to Bellevue Hospital for treatment.

Kristin's injuries prevented her from finishing her guest stint on the show.

She said: "It is with deep regret to inform everyone that due to my injuries, I am unable to return to The Good Wife. [I'm] getting better slowly, and thank you everyone for your concern."
