SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) -- Kids will be kids, but one cranky
2-year-old was acting too much his age for a Southwest Airlines
flight crew who kicked him off a plane getting ready to leave for
San Jose.
Pamela Root says she was confident her son Adam's screams of
"Go! Plane! Go!" and "I want Daddy!" would subside once the
plane took off Monday in Amarillo, Texas.
But she says the plane taxied back to the gate and the pair was
escorted off.
The 38-year-old stay-at-home mom wants an apology and
compensation for the portable crib and diapers she had to buy for
the extra night away from home.
Southwest spokeswoman Marilee McInnis says removing a crying
child from a flight is unusual, but crews have leeway to resolve
situations.
McInnis says the airline is looking into the incident.
