New Garbage Disposal, sink won't drain

So I just put in a new garbage disposal (Frigidaire FGDI753DMS) and I cannot for the life of my figure out why the water won't drain from the sink. The I've punched the knockout for the dishwasher, I have an air gap on the dishwasher drain hose, there's nothing in the trap or piping as I've taken them apart multiple times to check. I'm out of ideas. The old garbage disposal would drain and that's the only thing that changed so I'm sure it's not the pipes. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If this is a double sink does the other side drain?

You are right, this doesn't makes sense.

Send picture of under sink connections.

Your airgap doesn't have anything to do with the normal draining, just your drain lines. I would set bucket under garbage disposal and remove drain line connected to it. If you get flow of water, the problems lies down stream. If not, there is a blockage in you garbage disposal.
