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.

    They should have gotten kicked off the plane the parents should know how to discipline their children. I know she was white a black mother would have slapped that child in the mouth and he would have been quite until we got where we were going

    I agree with the airlines. I had the misfortune fly back from Nova Scotia with a screaming child for a complete non-stop 1.5 hours. Come to find out, the kid had an ear infection and the parents flew with it anyway. Child abuse for sure. It sure ruined my trip.
