Glad to hear everything turned out ok for mother and child, but I can't help but wonder, what would make her even come close to thinking stepping on a plane when you're that close to full term is a good idea?

Some much needed good PR for AA, too. Let's just hope the F/As don't cite this as a reason to give them a pay raise.   

Cheers,
Cameron

How on earth did she board a flight when she was so close to her delivery?
Also, she was medically unfit to fly.
I hope some serious action is taken....flying when you are 8-9 months pregnant?
WTF?



Keep flying, because the sky is no limit!

Since the flight was inbound from PAP if the parent was Haitian I was wondering if the kid will be an American?

Quoting NBC Miami Article (Thread starter):
The baby boy and mother are healthy and, surprisingly, the woman was not charged an extra baggage fee.

If she was flying Spirit she would have been charged a carry-on fee of $45 for not purchasing it online or at the ticket counter.

What kind of action? You want to imprison the mother? Let's all calm down...

I was never angry, just surprised...

And not to imprison her, but to inquire what were you doing on on the flight when you are medically unfit.

Of course the kid will be an American and of course that's why the Mother was on the plane in the first place. It happens everyday in this screwed up country. The laws need to change nationwide ASAP. If you are not a US citizen or are here illegally and you have a child, then your child keeps YOUR status.

Amendment 14- Section 1 of the United States Constitution-

No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

But I suppose this is a topic for non-aviation....

Anchor Baby.......

I remember way back when the airlines used to refuse passage to someone in their 8th or 9th month of pregnancy. Has this changed?

The United Nations considers a child born in-flight to have been born in the airplane's registered country. Some countries point to the city where the child first disembarked the plane as the place of birth, and to the airplane's registered country as the place of citizenship.

A very screwed up country indeed, when its citizens don't have the slightest idea of what is a constitutional right and what is a law!! But let's go back to the topic!

Flying is not advisable, but they legally can't force you to not fly.

Of course, my mom flew a couple weeks before I was born, flying between air bases in Korea and the mainland U.S., on a U.S. military transport aircraft (C-5.)

First of all, the poster to whom you replied was asking a hypothetical question. There was no need to jump to conclusions; I don't recall any part of that article explaining the mother's citizenship. The flight originated in PAP, but that doesn't mean every passenger onboard was a Haitian national.

Kudos to Ms Sund for a job well-done! It's refreshing to see that American (by nationality, not airline) FAs aren't always being portrayed by the public in a negative light. Cheers!

Lets cut the politically correct crap a 8 to 9 month pregnant women doesn't think its a good idea to go to a foreign country on vacation. If there is some complication or early birth, the place I do not want my wife or girlfriend to be is Haiti. There is a very good chance she is Haitian and was on that flight so that she could have her baby in the US.

You're right; but who's to say that she was on vacation in Haiti?

While I'm not disputing your theory, I think it's interesting that this is the only one you thought of. Did it never cross your mind that perhaps she was on her way back to the US from a visit with relatives or friends? She could very well be a legal resident/citizen of the US and was returning to have her baby at home.

It's not "politically correct" to simply look at something from a different angle, particularly since none of us have details about this passenger. In any event, the baby was delivered safely, and all is well, thanks to the F/A Ms. Sund - which was the original intent of this thread.
