What would your complaint have been if your grandmother had become even more ill during the flight? That Alaska should then not have allowed such an obviously sick person on the flight?

The decision not to board your grandmother was made by Med-Link. They are the medical experts that the airlines (not just Alaska) listen to. Med-Link, not the airlines, and certainly not you, have the medical training. They made the decision. However, since you cannot complain to Med-Link, you are venting on Alaska for following their decision, and doing what was right.

Ill people should not fly in my opinion, unless it is a situation where medical personnel are with them. People spread the flu to people on flights, some people can die from that. You don't KNOW what would have happened to your grandmother in flight. It's not worth risking a person's life, though you seem to think otherwise.
