JetBlue Flight

A JetBlue pilot refused to fly because a family’s 2-year-old threw a temper tantrum! The airline kicked the family of four off the flight!

When Dr. Colette Vieau‘s 2-year-old daughter Natalie threw a fuss on a Boston-bound JetBlue flight from the Turks and Caicos, her mom did everything she could to calm the little one. Natalie’s parents managed to get her seat belt fastened and held in place, but the pilot and a flight attended decided they were unable to take off until the family left, according to The Daily Mail.

The parents were forced to take Natalie and their 3-year-old Cecilia off the flight.

“We weren’t belligerent, drunk, angry, screaming,” Colette says. “We were just having a hard time struggling with our children.”

After being kicked off, the family was forced to stay another night on the island because there were no more flights that day. They had to book a hotel for the night and more flights to get home, which cost them an more than $2,000.

“Flight 850 had customers that did not comply with crew member instructions for a prolonged time period,” JetBlue said in a statement. “The Captain elected to remove the customers involved for the safety of all customers and crew members on board.”

Do YOU think it’s fair this family was kicked off their flight?
