When You've Got To Go, You've Got To Go

When You've Got To Go, You've Got To Go

By Jeff Wagner. CREATED Jun 16, 2014

Last week, a mom and her 3-year-old daughter were flying from New York to Boston.  After sitting on the tarmac for about a half hour waiting to take, the child needed to use the restroom.  

A flight attendant refused to allow the mother to leave her seat - and as a result, the child "had an accident".  As the mother stood up to try to clean the mess, the same flight attendant ordered her to sit down.  When she refused, the pilot threatened to turn the plane around because of a "non-compliant passenger on board".

FAA regulations, of course, require passengers to remain seated while the plane is on the taxi way.

Some are defending the airline suggesting that the mother should have made sure her daughter had taken care of her needs before getting on the plane.

During the 12 p.m. hour of Monday's show, we'll discuss whether the flight attendant mishandled the situation - or whether the mom's negligence caused the problem in the first place?

Please feel free to share your thoughts in the Comments section - and be sure to check back later to hear a replay of the segment.
