Karlie Kloss, the international model declared by Vogue to be one of the top models of the 2000s, is also usually identified as one of the calmest, coolest, and most collected among the world of supermodels. Recently, though, she lost her cool when the most unexpected of reasons tested her patience.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Karlie Kloss took her followers and fans by surprise when she called out Philippine Airlines on her social media accounts.
According to Karlie Kloss, no one flies Philippine Airlines, and the supermodel claims to know why. She took a selfie in front of the check-in desk, which she uploaded to Snapchat, with her strongly worded message in red font. Kloss added that Philippine Airlines is the most budget airline of all and the rudest and most disrespectful one too. The situation that sparked the strong remarks from Karlie stemmed from the supermodel missing her flight home after arriving at the check-in gate 25 minutes after the desk had closed.

Philippine Airlines’ policy is to close check-in counters at JFK Airport in New York one hour before the estimated time of departure. Kloss’ flight was due to depart at 12:15 a.m. on June 7, so, pursuant to the airline’s policy, the check-in counters closed at 11:15 p.m.
Karlie Kloss attempted to check in at 11:40 p.m. The airline reached out to Karlie Kloss on Twitter and offered a sincere apology, however, not before Karlie’s post had been retweeted more than 3,000 times.
Philippine Airlines also issued an official statement to Karlie Kloss.
“To show the heart of the Filipino, we are extending her assistance to facilitate the refund of her unused ticket or to facilitate the rebooking of her flight. PAL will be pleased to serve Ms. Kloss’ travel needs in the future.”

According to the Daily Mail, Karlie Kloss responded favorably to the apology of the company to her and thanked them for reaching out to her.
It also appears that the supermodel was able to catch an alternative flight as she ultimately made it to New York on Tuesday anyway. And to support this, she was seen walking around the West Village area by herself.
One of the reasons why she was walking around alone could be because of her current frustration with her boyfriend, Joshua Kushner. According to another Daily Mail article, Kloss and Kushner have just celebrated their fourth anniversary, but despite having reason to celebrate, the pair were spotted having a heated argument on June 11 on the streets of New York. Kloss and Kushner were captured by a photographer who was at the scene when the two were having a public disagreement.

Even though Karlie Kloss was noticeably angry at the time of the argument, the couple ultimately seems to have worked things out as they walked through the city’s West Village. Karlie Kloss was seen wearing a gray Adidas shirt with a black and white Adidas jacket tied around her waist. She also wore white sneakers and black leggings. Luckily for the supermodel, she was able to let off some steam by going for a jog while listening to music on her phone, and it was when she was jogging that Karlie Kloss seemed much happier.
In other news, it was recently announced that Karlie Kloss will be the newest face of Swarovski and will appear in the company’s digital, outdoor, and television campaigns, according to Vogue.
Karlie Kloss spoke on how she feels about joining the Swarovski family.
“It’s an honor to join the Swarovski family and to be part of the brand’s long history of bringing elegance to women through brilliant, unique designs. It’s a brand that I’ve worn on the runway or on red carpets for years and also before I was a model.”
