Emilie de Ravin calls for airline employee's firing over breast pump

It's probably not a good idea to antagonize an airline passenger who got famous by playing a pregnant woman involved in a dramatic plane crash.

That's the lesson one American Airlines employee is finding out the hard way after Lost star Emilie de Ravin says the breast pump bag she was bringing on board her Thursday flight out of LAX was ripped from her hand by one of their workers.

The actress, who now stars on ABC's Once Upon a Time, tweeted the saga to American, which responded apologetically, asking for more details.

"Please kindly dismiss this woman from @americanair employment," she requested.

De Ravin did thank the pilot for being apologetic and helping her obtain the name of the person who took her bag and to whom she should report the incident, as well as making the flight "smooth and safe" apart from that encounter.

But she said that doesn't make up for the woman's actions.

"There is NO excuse (for) physical force being used on someone trying to take her breast pump carry on. NOT OK."

De Ravin and  her writer/director fiancé Eric Bilitch are the parents of a five-month-old daughter named Vera Audrey.
