It's starting to seem like airlines don't even want passengers. Just two months after JetBlue kicked a Brooklyn family off a flight because of a birthday cake (yes, a birthday cake), another Brooklyn family says they were kicked off a flight because their child kicked the seat in front of her (an annoying thing children often do). And JetBlue is defending its crew members' decision to kick the family of five off the flight after an "unfortunate incident" on July 2nd, People reports.
Here's the family's story, according to a press release sent to People by the couple’s lawyer David Templer: Tamir Raanan and Mandy Ifrah were returning to New York from Fort Lauderdale with their three kids when their 1-year-old daughter Eden became "agitated" and kicked the seat in front of her.
Ifrah apologized to the woman whose seat her daughter kicked, and "exchanged a few words" with her, before moving to an empty seat in another part of the plane, the statement claims. The family says that a flight attendant then asked the pilot to return to the gate and they were then asked to disembark the plane.
