A furious plus-size model who said she wasstopped from boarding a Qatar Airways flight because she was too large was 'extremely rude and aggressive to check-in staff,' the airline has said.

Social media influencer Juliana Nehme, 38, accused the middle eastern airline of discriminating against her due to her size, saying that she was stopped from boarding a flight to her native Brazil because she was too 'fat' for her seat.

But the airline told MailOnline on Thursday that a member ofNehme's family, whom she was travelling with, failed to produce the required Covid-19 PRC test documentation to board a flight to Doha - en-route to her homeland.

At this point, the airline said, 'the passenger in question at Beirut Airport was initially extremely rude and aggressive to check-in staff,'an airline spokesman told MailOnline.'As a result, airport security was requested to intervene as staff and passengers were extremely concerned with her behaviour.'

In a post for her 118,000 Instagram followers, Juliana said she was not allowed to board her flight from Beirutto Doha on November 22 because of her size.
