Apologies if already posted, sometimes news doesn't get in the search.

Cary (WTVD) "An American Eagle flight taxiing to a Raleigh-Durham Airport runway was turned around Monday, but not because of a terrorist threat.

The crew was kicking an autistic Cary toddler and his mother off the plane."

Full story

Well if the child was truly unruly then the pilots would be under an obligation to kick the kid off.
My cousin is profoundly autistic, so I am truly understanding of this issue, but at the same time, when he was a toddler, my aunt and uncle just didn't fly with him. No way possible. Now how diplomatic the flight crew was is the rub.


I may be ugly. I may be an American. But don't call me an ugly American.

Autistic or not, a person cannot fly if they are going to be disruptiv or not obey the rules. Too many people these days are playing the race, disability or age card in an attempt for sympathy. If the kid flew and injured himself, I promise you the parents would be at the lawyer's office ASAP.

One of the pilots came back to the cabin with a stern warning and Farrell says the frustration level escalated.

I thought pilots in the USA were never supposed to come out of the cockpit for these kinds of things anymore?

Funny how the mother never said anything about her attempts to calm her child, perhaps because there wasn't any attempt on her part?

Sympathies to the mother and child - but all passengers regardless of age, disability, mental or physical condition, injury, emotional state, etc, etc are subject to the same basic rules regarding safety and disruption onboard. Unfortunately, that may mean some people (including young children) simply cannot fly on regular commercial air transport.
