So a Boston family gets tossed from an AirTran flight from Ft. Myers, Florida when their 3-year-old daughter freaks out and won't sit in her paid-for seat. After holding the flight for 15 minutes, and refusing to let the too-old kid sit on her mom's lap, flight attendants removed the family. But wait, that's not all they did.
AirTran refunded their money--a mere $595 for three tickets--and flew them home the next day and offered them free roundtrips on a future flight. The family's response? "The father said his family would never fly AirTran again."
Funny, I said the same thing when I had to fly AirTran once in 1999 for work. Only the reason I quit was because the passengers were clueless, noob idiots who acted like they'd never been on a plane before. I'm going with Team AirTran on this one.
