Every time you’ve been on a plane with a screaming child you’ve probably thought to yourself, "Gee, couldn’t they just drag the little brat off the plane?" Well, it actually happened, and it wasn’t nearly as satisfying as you’d have hoped.
A 3-year old traveling with her parents from Ft. Myers to Boston was kicked off the flight by an AirTran employee after she threw a bit of a fit before takeoff. Really. That’s it. 3-year old throws tantrum, employee comes on board and says girl has to leave. AirTran realizes that this was not a particularly nice thing to do, as there’s not much you can do if your kid is screaming like that except wait it out, and has refunded the airfare to the family. They’ve also apologized. Which is nice.
