January 22, 2013 JetBlue boots Huffington Post blogger over a seat assignment.
hmmm not sure what to make of this.
The tl;dr version goes like this, mother is in the aisle, kid in the middle, writer in the window. Writer asks mother twice to switch with autistic kid so he can sleep on the 8 hour flight (which I assume was a connecting or direct through Orlando as B6 only operates MCO-BOG). Mother refuses, the FA’s get involved and the writer is booted off the airplane. Reading between the lines it looks like maybe the writer got into it with the JetBlue FA’s which would certainly justify kicking him off the plane. I am interested in what JetBlue’s FAs have to say about what happened, but it doesn’t look like we’ll be hearing from them.
What do you ya’ll think happened?
