More Airline Madness

Have you heard about this?

This is so outrageous that I can't even believe it happened. A mother and her 19-month-old son got kicked off a flight because the little boy was saying "bye bye plane" over and over. The flight attendant even asked the mother to drug her son with Benadryl to keep him quiet. What????

Apparently, this flight attendant has never been around children. Apparently, she has no moral conscience. Apparently, she doesn't care that the whole world will now think she's a bitch. And apparently, she doesn't value her job because (hopefully) she's about to be fired.

Sucks for her.

What a bitch!

(Don't tell anyone but I totally used Benadryl on my two year old when we drove 13 hours to go on vacation. But only once. Stop looking at me like that! Her doctor recommended it. For real!)

Part of my amazement was that the flight attendant had the say-so to have the plane turn back to make them get off the plane. Wouldn't/shouldn't the pilots have asked some questions?

Oh. My. Fucking. God!!!!!!!!!!!!
(sorry about the language)
But seriously, I can't believe that happened....that airhostess should be hunted down by all who know her and bitch-slapped with a dead codfish!!!!
Did she think she owned the plane???
Who says to a mother, you have to shut your child up....I mean, move her to Glasgow airport..let her be on a flight I'm on, and WATCH her attempt to tell me that............grrrrrrr.
That poor poor woman with the baby, she must've felt like a criminal being taken off the plane (AND BECAUSE SHE REFUSED TO DRUG HER CHILD!). I'm thinking compensation for the loss of her and her childs flight and the emotional trauma.....somebody call that woman a lawyer!!!!!

That's so silly. What did they think, the kid has a semi-automatic strapped to his back???

Oh for crying out loud! At the least that flight attendant bitch should lose her job, and the airline should publicly apologize to the woman and her son. How fucking rude!

We're flying in about 4 weeks and I'm interested to see if anything of the sort happens to us. It seems that stories about mistreatment of families traveling with small children on airlines have been increasing in frequency. I'm hoping it's a smooth flight, but really, I'm already dreading it, not because of fear of Gabe acting up, but fear of how we'll be treated if he gets upset or scared on the plane.

I know, right?!?!? KayTar talks non-stop. God help us if toddlers are no longer allowed to speak on airplanes.

He wasn't even throwing a fit!! Just saying "Bye bye airplane!" WTF? I don't get that at all. I do hope she gets fired.

WTF? Someone needs to give that flight attendant a Valium.

This is shocking. She has no understanding of children. If everyone took seriously the comments my 3 year innocently makes we'd never be able to go anywhere!
PS I've blogrolled you!

Apparently, the pilot was the one who called the shots regarding turning the airplane around -- the flight attendant just "alerted" him to the situation.

Either way, I think a bad call was definitely made.

Now, I am not against providing my kids with a little pharmaceutical help on an airplane if they need it, but to be told to do so by a rude stewardess in such a demanding tone would piss me off.

I smell a lawsuit. A big one.

This story still amazes me. It's just so...not necessary, you know? I read a comment about it on another blog somewhere; someone said they hope the flight attendant gets pregnant with triplets and has to travel with them, alone, at feeding time, or something like that. Bwahahaha. Sounds good to me.

Now I'm REALLY starting to get nervous about taking Lance on an international flight next year. Oh dear, oh dear.
