A mother and her two-year-old baby suffering from asthma were booted from an American Airlines flight thanks to a power-tripping flight attendant.
“He had the plane turned around and had us escorted off to be met by police officers: Why? Wait for it… because my 2 year old was not properly wearing a mask,” Amanda Pendarvis wrote on an Instagram story.
Pendarvis, who was wearing a face mask, explained that it was difficult for her baby to breathe with a mask over his face.
“I was not refusing a mask. Nor did I even say I wouldn’t try to keep a mask on my son,” Pendarvis said. “We were escorted off the plane as I was holding a mask over his little face. I genuinely don’t have words.”
The flight, which was bound for Colorado, turned around and returned to the gate where several police officers were waiting for mother and child.
“On Sept. 13, American Airlines flight 1284 returned to the gate prior to departure from Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) to deplane a party on board,” an American Airlines spokesman told Daily Dot. “Initial reports indicate the party refused to comply with crew member instructions to remain seated and wear a face mask securely over their nose and mouth. After agreeing to adhere to federal face-covering requirements, all individuals were rebooked for travel on the next flight to Colorado Springs (COS).”
I hope you remember this story the next time the airline industry comes with hat in hand to the American people asking for yet another billion dollar bailout.
Wow. American Airlines kicked a 2 year old boy with asthma off a plane and had police waiting for him + his mom because a power tripping flight attendant Carl lost his humanity. The last thing you’d do to a child suffering from an asthma attack is force a mask on them. pic.twitter.com/pWuVXJrFps— Robby Starbuck (@robbystarbuck) September 15, 2021
Hello, maybe we get flight attendant fired from @AmericanAir today?— Tiger Lily (@yogarespecter) September 14, 2021
My sweet friend’s 2 year old son was having an asthma attack and wouldn’t keep mask on (because he couldn’t breathe) – and they turned plane around and had police waiting to escort them off. A 2 year old. pic.twitter.com/Ks2VbnNASW
