I wonder if the family requested McDonalds or if the airline was just too cheap.
I`m betting on the former :)
even if CP itself isnt geneticly-linked, its possible whatever caused it is...
Doesn`t it scream inbred middle-american 1st cousin marriage stereotype to anybody else?
On a more serious note:
"F*ck those kids and every family that has kids like em."
Im pretty sure Adolf Hitler had a view not dissimilar to yours, you elitist thug.
what the hell? those kids must be unco to get kicked off a plane!
Who the hell travels without any money? With a family no less? Retards.
either way, i feel bad for them.
just a thought.
I wouldn`t have even allowed them on my plane to begin with if I owned the airline.Show some respect for yourself if you expect it from others.
Should have kicked them off the plane while it was still in flight. It when losers breed.
Also, no one mentioned anything about the other two, non-impared kids. If they had explained to the flight crew that two of their children had autism and CP, then fine, but I`m betting the other two were being brats.
People nowadays let their kids get away with anything. I work as a cashier at Wal-mart through college, and if I did half the stuff those kids do, I wouldn`t be able to sit down for a month. Don`t breed if you suck at parenting.
you disgust me.
This had everything. A lesbian, an obese woman, annoying children, `The Slaughter Family`. My gosh, we`re going to see this at the box office in a few years.
Alright, come and gone has my failed attempt at humour. Kids are kids, but if you know they can`t behave, try to teach them first and if you can`t do that, don`t take `em on an airplane k?
Maybe they should have their own section..."
OK, I`m done being a b*tch now.
I do agree that stupid SW airlines should`ve given them travel vouchers, cuz leaving them stranded is friggin ridiculous.
First, I MUST say that the Southwest was correct in removing them from the flight. For those that have never flown, the coach sections of commercial aircraft are normally VERY confined spaces. ANYONE continually getting up and walking around the aircraft is going to be a nuisance. If the person doing it is an unruly child, it`s that much worse. Other passengers are usually quite tolerant of MINOR issues BECAUSE it is such a confined space. For the cabin crew that no longer had to deal with them to make the decision to recommend that they not be allowed to continue their journey tells me that these kids were WAY out of line.
Second, for those that have never flown Southwest, let me tell you that as an airline, Southwest is comparable to the seventh level of hell. Yes, they had the right to interrupt their travel if the kids were uncontrollable. At the very least they should have fed them, and placed them on the next possible flight.
I bet the parents let the kid stand up in the front seat of the car as well.
Sedcoond, at least TRY to conrol them
Third, since when are kids with disabilities a tghreat?
Besides, I`ve been on planes with crying babies and all that such. Not the best thinbg ever to listen to screaming babies...and having your seat kicked by a three tewar old...but unfortunetly we have to deal with it.
The thing is, the three year olds- they don`t really know better so for the whole flight you have to deal with it.
Otherwise, I like flying. I just wish I had a summer vscation this summer...so bored
I don`t feel bad for them whatsoever. If you are taking your kids out into public, be a PARENT and discipline them when they are acting out. When I was little, my parents told me that if I didn`t behave the next time the family went out to eat, I`d be at home with a babysitter.
It all comes down to the parent actually being a parent and having a backbone.
-yes I would accept their removal from the plane.
This is why it`s not a good idea for cousins to marry.
and yes they should have been kicked off the flight, the problem with people these days is they think they have way more rights than they do. You do not have the right to not be kicked off a flight no matter how much you drat around.
You can just tell that these people are low class, the adults probably did nothing to control the kids. They probably just sat around yakking and eating while the kids terrorized the rest of the passengers. I`m so glad the airline took action and made them get off.
My kids have flown and they`re never like that. They get a little restless but they don`t bother other passengers.
That arguement doesn`t wash with me. Sure, she`s huge, and sure you can be obese without being a retard, but that was a family of fat retards. The kids aren`t the problem. The adults are the ones who should be responsible, and teach their kids to behave. Well, they learned that there are consiquences for their actions - and I applaud the airline for kicking those fat morons off the plane. I mean think of the environmental impact - the fuel consumption on that flight must have been halved for the rest of the flight.
Besides all of that, would you want to sit beside them? The public has a right to be protected from exposure to stupid, rude, ignorant, entitled and genetically disadvantaged hillbilly types.
Maybe they should have their own section...
I`m guessing it ranked right up there with that time she got hit in the face with a shovel."
Best comment ever :D
bmachine82: Who mentioned Down`s syndrome?
I agree with the company, if they`re disruly they shouldn`t be on the plane. Parents need to learn to control their kids, and if they can`t that`s their problem
Me: What is this Hillbilly option of which you speak?
AA: Hillbilly is our lowest cost seating, made available to meet the growing demand for extra wide seating for our inbred passengers. We`re proud to offer free dental service in-flight, but I should warn you that the body odor can be a bit of a problem. Pets and farm animals are permitted, provided you share your seat with them. The in-flight movie is always Deliverance.
Me: How much extra do I have to pay to be as far from there as possible?
Also, Not having enough money to buy food, another plane ticket(s) (Honestly I`d just ditch the family if I was travelling with them)or other necessities is just plain neglectful. The family should have at LEAST a few hundred dollars or a credit card. IF they didn`t have enough money to pay for such things, they shouldn`t be on a plane in the first place.
Also, the Mcdonalds thing didn`t really help with their health.
I can`t stand people who complain and disrupt travels and then complain when they get asked to leave.
It`s like when I went on a train to Manchester. An extremely overweight man (could only just fit down the aisle) complained that there wasn`t enough room, it was too hot, the meal was bad, etc.
So I told him straight "Why don`t you lose some weight you fat **** and stop harrassing the workers for your own **** problem".
In short, he left
And secondly, if your kids have all of these conditions that prohibit them from sitting still for too long, then what the f*ck were you doing taking them on an airplane in the first place, when you admitted that you KNEW they couldn`t behave there?
I am personally glad that Southwest stepped up and removed this family from the flight.
- Their son was sitting calmy during the interview, which leads me to believe he is fairly easly managed. Many autistics kids I know would not sit still even for a couple of moments without showing some level of `behaviors`.
2 - Parents of autistic kids KNOW how to handle their kids and know what things are likely to set them off.
3 - Consider, if you are on a flight and someone has a panic attack, you would accept their removal from the flight. This is no different.
- I have never had good experiences with Southwest. I think their customer service and operating procedures suck. I will not fly them if it is at all possible to fly another carrier.
- If I were on that plane I would have cheered when they were removed. A plane is one place where parents MUST keep control of their kids. There are somethings you cannot control (screeming, etc), but she could have found some way to keep them in their seats, especially with two adults in the party. Most parents travel with toys and activities to keep their kids occupied.
- I think the airline did the right thing in removing them from the flight. They must consider both the safety and comfort of the other 200 people on the flight. The ONLY mistake the airline made was not to offer them any support once they were removed. They should have offered them another flight, a refund so they could get a flight on another airline, etc.
On another note, I think that if you DO have children with "disabilities" that could possibly affect their behavior on an airplane, that it would be best to drive to your destination. Yes, it takes longer, but at least you won`t be stranded when you`re kicked off the plane. And if you can afford an airline ticket, you can afford the gas to drive an automobile instead.
Yeah..thats cause your a stupid cow who obviously thinks doping a kid up with Autism solves the problem. I feel sorry for your kids if you`d turn them into a vegtable at the drop of a hat!
"Ma`am, your children are disruptive and behaving inappopriatley, please throw them out of the nearest emergeny exit! ( Cha!)
drat you you dumb mean person. I have four kids, and I drating GUARANTEE if we were on a flight no one would even notice them. It`s called being a good parent, and it`s NOT a drating option. Do it or face the consequences.
That first image of her waddling toward someone with her mouth open is indelibly burned into my memory right next to that image of goatse.cx
Plus, they did get free McDonalds and lodging, they make it sound liked they were left in a godforsaken desert without any means of survival -.-;
I`m guessing it ranked right up there with that time she got hit in the face with a shovel.
As a former Wal-Mart employee I fully understand that statement.
I feel sorry for her because it`s only two of them, and four kids. If it were my kids, I`d strap them down to the seat, look them square in the eye, make some threatening comment, and leave it at that. I`m not afraid to be strict with my kids.
Her Sister: (the lady that made the comment about "no heart")
Needs to quit smoking, and for crap`s sake, VISIT A DENTIST!
I`d be furious about what happened. I`ve had an issue with an airline before. Letting someone cancel my flight who has no right to.
...errmm..that was mean, im sorry, that wont happen again
Side note: that woman was huge.
