    hm. This is interesting, considering the fact that I am going to become a flight attendant for Delta Airlines one day. :) I mean, I`m sure, by FAA laws, that there must be atleast 1 FA for every 50 passengers. I`m not sure as to why these children would have become of a great concern to the safety of the flight, unless, after offering activities and refreshments to them, they would simply not settle down. Running down the hills is unacceptable in an airplane at 30,000 feet, of course. Unfortunately, the parent couldn`t keep their children under control. I would be a bit more understanding and try to be as caring to their needs as possible, especially since the young boy has a condition of Autiusm, but in my opinion, there MUST have been a better way to deal with this particular situation.
    However, what I am not sure about are the laws regarding the supervision of one`s children. Does anyone know if there is a law that states that those, children, who are behaving in a manner that

    (continued) may be hazardous to the safety of the flight and its passengers are unable to board, because I think that there is. I mean, I`m sure that they wouldn`t let a hysterical, frightened person fly on the plane, no matter what the circumstances. If I was Southwest, I would immediately offer them free travel vouchers and my sincerest apologies if I had not believed that the company acted in the best interest of its customers.

    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.

    I think that if the children were being that restless, then it wasn`t the worst decision to kick them off the flight. However, I think that they should at least offer them a flight at a later date to the city that they were closer to.

    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.

    People are too sensitive about disabilities. I have HFA and was very misbehaved as a child, but with hard work my parents got me to behave as best as I could... I even sat still on occasion (lol). No one should use that as an excuse. It gives everyone a bad name. The parents need to try harder....

    I traveled with my kids once when they were little.
    No way were my kids going to act up on an airplane.
    Running around having a good time is for the back yard not a plane full of other people. The mother is at fault completely! If her children have medical conditions that would aid them being unruly and obnoxious, she should have gotten medication from their doctor to keep them calm!!!
    I don`t feel sorry for that woman at all!!!

    You know, it sounds `sad` and all. But guess what, we never get the real story. The real thing is typically played down, just like everything else. I`m willing to bet the kids were out of control, and extremely obnoxious. When you have kid`s who have disabilities you need to know how to control them. If you can`t control them, which it seems they couldn`t, then you have no right disrupting a flight and possibly putting others in danger. If this was the case, the flight company doesn`t owe them isht, they need to wake up and smell the F`ing coffee.
    While not the same thing, but when I go to my local motorcycle dealer, I`m outraged when I see 5 year olds roaming around, pushing one bikes (possibly tipping them over and causing damage to multiple bikes)
    People need to learn to control their kids, they`re responsible, Other people are NOT responsible for keeping their kids in line.

    Because of course they aren`t telling us the full story, I mean they wouldn`t kick people of a plane if they were just being `somewhat` unruly.
    No I bet six were being complete obnoxious pains in the ass.

    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 -.-;

    As a parent of an Autistic daughter, some of you make me sick. When a Autistic child is upset, it is nearly impossible to calm them down, while they may or may not have not made the best choices on dealing with the kids, one can not assume that they are bad parents because of the problems. If you were not there. I fear for my daughter because mfers like you!

    I`m guessing that if MOM says they were not completely under control ( and isn`t that an oxymoron? You are out of control or you are NOT under control.... ) then they were probably very out of control. If you can`t get your kids to settle down on a plane, well, it`s not like you can just take them outside.

    You people make me sick. As someone with a form of Autism, Asperger`s Syndrome, I can say, Autism is NOT a "disability", nor should "medication" be taken for it. In fact, medication coming from fixing Autism has a slew of side effects that not even YOU`D want. My childhood was ruined because of it. If you people think that "quick fixes" are going to fix the child, you`re quite wrong. Usually, not even medicine works if the kid is being unruly, what`s a better fix is to find an outlet for it. I will admit, that woman was quite stupid though. =\

    Ok..part of me says "the mother + her sister look like trash"...but c`mon. 1 kid is autistic, the other has cerebal palsy? Anyone who knows anything about either condition knows its not as simple as "controling your kids". Simply because I do know, I`m siding with the family..though obviously I have no idea exactly what happened and how much she ignored!

    Everyone is talking about the "disabled" children...but the family had two more kids as well. Who`s to say they weren`t causing trouble, too?

    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.

    My thoughts...

    - 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.

    I worked for 2 years with autistic children. I don`t think you can use that as an `excuse`.

    - 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.

    There were three grown people with the children right? You would think three adults would be able to control that amount of kids weather they are disabled or not. Even if it was their first flight that`s no excuse if you have a decent amount of control over your child you should be able to keep them calm.
    As for the money thing, Who travels without having at least some form of backup money in case something happens? I mean they didn`t look like the type of people with a lot of money, but seriously if you`re going to travel be prepared.

    I agree completely with Wundt. I know plenty of autistic kids that have been taught to sit and behave. Yes, it is harder for them than other children, but it`s not impossible.

    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.

    I`d have kicked them off mid-flight.

    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

    "What does it matter what a person looks like? My God, is it any of anyone`s business? We`re just living inside shells, what matters is the person on the inside"

    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...

    Ayull, if they had that section, it would be overcrowded.
    While I see the familys point of view, it seems as if they really didn`t do anything. I mean, 3 grown adults versus 4 kids? Honestly, either it`s horrible parenting, the kids are unruly even WITH good parenting, or maybe some other third source that caused the kids to behave so badly. The adults really should learn to control their kids a little more. Such as bringing stuff to do on the flight, like a coloring book or whatever. At least it would keep them entertained.

    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.

    Airline Agent: Sir will you be flying First Class, Coach, or Hillbilly?

    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?

    All arguments aside, waa waaa waa her kids were this or that, "white trash poster family" whether or not she deserved that treatment. I know for one had I been on that plane I would`ve shoved them out the door myself. I can only imagine what that nightmare was like, I would love to hear from the passengers I am sure half of them are in Critical incident stress debriefing and on medication as I write this.

    GOOD! It`s about time the airlines do something about annoying people like that. I don`t feel sorry for them at all. The only "exception" was the autistic child. But she should`ve taken steps to make sure he`d be able to deal with the experience. Cerebral Palsey isn`t an excuse for unruly behavior and the other kids had no excuse either.

    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.

    And this is what happens when parents are more concerned with being their kids` best friends rather than parents. Working in a restaurant, I see some unbelievable things when kids come in--from the parents allowing the kids to throw food, scream, and in one case the kid left the table entirely and walked around unsupervised.

    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.

    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

    You have to consider the children`s safety as well. If they are incapable of staying seated (and belted in) what happens when the plane hits turbulence and they start flying around the cabin into hard objects or other passengers? Who wants a kid with his head split open or a broken spine?

    I bet the parents let the kid stand up in the front seat of the car as well.

    Wow... lots more discussion since last night...

    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 have no sympathy for this family. It`s incredibly rude to let your children wander all around the plane and be as loud as they want to be. If I ever do get up the guts to travel by plane (highly unlikely - one of my biggest fears), I know which airline to take.

    I am so sick of hearing people say "i have a disability, i should be treated special" and in the same breath "i just want to be treated like everyone else". Grow up, be a responsible parent, and if your children don`t behave, smack `em. There is no reason to treat anyone with ANY kind of disability differently than everyone else. They should`ve been kicked off. That`s one reason I will not fly, too many crazy people out there and their unruly kids.

    I have an autistic cousin who has quite a short attention span too, but he knows when it`s time to play and when it`s time to sit down and be quiet. Quit using this as an excuse... you CAN control your child if he or she has autism, it`s just harder to get them to learn.

    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.

    Good for Southwest. I`ve flown ALOT and I`ve been on flights with horrendous, undisciplined children AND adults. If you`ve ever been crammed on a plane for 4 or 5 hours with screaming banshees, you will agree with Southwest`s decision. And quit using "ailments" as an excuse for bad behavior. I had ADD as a child (and still have it as an adult to a degree) and you know how my dad solved it? He beat it out of me. MADE me learn to sit still and be quiet. It`s all about self discipline. And yes, the concept of self discipline applies to a grossly overweight white trash mother, idiot children, and a pregnant sister. Learn to accept responsibility for yourself and your actions. And on a side note, who was desperate enought to knock up THAT sister up and did they do it with the lights off?

    I cannot believe how many people are focusing on the fact that the mother is overweight instead of the real issue...she should have given the flight attendants a `heads up` about the autistic boy and the girl with CP and that this was the first plane ride for all of the kids. Maybe the FA`s would have been a little more understanding. Also would probably have helped ALOT if the mother had brought things for the kids to keep busy with...we always did that with ours. Crayons, coloring books, comics, whatever. I don`t know how much discipline was going on with the mom and the aunt but that IS the job of a parent...not the flight attendants...and the kids should have been talked to by mom before the flight about what was expected of them and how to behave! If you have no control over your kids then you should strap those brats in their seats and tell them that if they get out of their seat to do anything other than use the restroom (once or twice) then there will be hell to pay!

    I`ve been on flights where a little kid is either sitting apart from his parents (why?) or the parent just doesn`t pay attention. One kid kept pushing on the back of my seat with his feet and then rolling his tonka truck on top of my head...not for long though. I waited for his mom to say something and when she didn`t, I did...I told him if he didn`t stop misbehaving that I was going to have the pilot land the plane and take him off and spank him! His mother never blinked an eye and the kid left me alone.

    Parents need to start beating their kids and making them go outside and play. Those kids were all way too fat - in fact, the whole family (save the skinny crackhead sister/mom/whatever were chunkers, lazy, stupid, inbred, and plain ignorant.

    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.

    Ugh what a nasty bitch. Stop having kids, obviously you`re not meant to produce any. Learn toothless hick of a sister off the news. I`m so glad they got kicked off.

    Who the hell travels without any money? With a family no less? Retards.

    I think the flight crew were right in what they did. They were being disruptive and bothering other passengers. The fat ass should have brought something for the kids to do or kept them straped in the seats. If you cant control your kids then dont take them anywhere.

    More and more parents just let their b@stard kids run amok with zero supervision and could care less if they disturb everyone in their vicinity. F*ck those kids and every family that has kids like em. This needs to happen more often on airlines.

    one kid with CP and another with autism?

    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.

    lol I love that the airlines (worth billions of dollars) bought the family McDonalds.

    I wonder if the family requested McDonalds or if the airline was just too cheap.

    I`m betting on the former :)

    That woman should teach her children manners. Thankfully being booted off the plane was a good lesson for the youngsters, one that their parents who are too busy eating KFC to teach.

    ya if i was in that family i would die. they practically scream "i`m lovin` it." i like real food, thanks.
    i believe that perhaps the parents should have tried harder to control their children, and the airline should have not been so harsh. they both have their responsibilities. lol. slaughter.
