Now they have to give her a 300 dollar voucher and the mother wants money for extra diapers or something. Maybe it's just me cause I hate flying but Screaming babies are the worst thing on a plane outside of screaming adults.

FLYING IS NOT A RIGHT IT's A PRIVILEGE


I would like to meet the stewards who threw them off and shake their hands, good job.
I loathe slack parenting in public - I kinda swore at a woman whose kid was kicking my seat on the way home from USA while I was trying to sleep. Whoops. Worked though. ;-7 O:-)

such a disciplinarian but he's consistent every time. i give you that mad. btw, you would make an awesome martial arts instructor. i'd send my kids (if i had any) to your dojo.


:-b

For me, this is one of those "common sense" situations. I mean you're on a plane, surrounded by 40-60 other people, and you can't get your kid to shut up and behave. You should expect the airline to threaten to remove you and your kid from the flight if you don't get the kid under control, and you should expect them to toss you off the plane if you don't comply. The other 40-60 people didn't pay money to be forced to listen to your kid, and those passengers will never fly that airline again if they are forced to do so. So this really is "common sense" that you are the problem and in the wrong, so fix it or deal with the ramifications.

But yeah, I'm pretty predictable, I pretty much always side against people with "self-entitlement" issues. :-b The kid can scream all he wants when they are alone in the car, but the minute that kid infringes on the rights of others, that kid has to be shut up.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

did you watch the video of the guy complaining? "I felt I was violated"

I guess he's never been to prison. Or a proctologist, for that matter.

While I agree with the airline's decision, pretty much everything else about your post is wrong.
She couldn't console her kid, so she's a terrible mother?
If she got kicked off the plane for something she couldn't control, she should be entitled to a refund.
And since she paid for the tickets, it is her right to fly.
With you being a liberal, I find it ironic, like rain on your wedding day, that you would complain about the media.


I'm not sure why I can't complain about the media. The media is garbage and more conservative then liberal. Mostly though the media puts out for whoever they think will buy their garbage.

And she's a terrible mother because I'm on the internet and I say so
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment
