Yesterday I wrote about a family booted off a JetBlue flight.
At the time of writing, the story was based on the account of the family. The flight attendants involved and airline did not make any comments.
This certainly makes for a one-sided story and it would’ve been nice to hear the flight attendant’s version too.
Well now JetBlue has responded to what happened with the family kicked off of the plane.
JetBlue told ABC News,
“If a customer is unable to follow federally-mandated safety regulations, it is our crew’s responsibility to put safety first and may accommodate those customers on a future flight”.
The article goes on to say that the mother involved, Mona Doshi, declined to comment to ABC News.
While it’s good to see that JetBlue acknowledged the situation, it seems to me that they offered ABC News a pretty generic response to what went down.
If Doshi really was buckling her son into his seat after being told to do so, then why was there a need to turn the plane around and cause the flight to be delayed? Was she not following the safety regulations?
It has got to make you wonder if there is more to the story.
