Addi375, Were you listening to ANYTHING that has been said?
Also the child should have noticed when they said....good evening welcome onboard flight 123 to Orlando.
The child and HP are both at fault here. Neither the child nor the agent were paying attention to what was going on. And dont tell me that a 11 year old deosnt know the difference between MCO and DTW.
Did you see what Go Canada! wrote???? This is from the article posted..
Woods' mother, Alacia Blake, who lives in Los Angeles, had paid AmericaWest a $60 fee for an airline chaperone to accompany her daughter to and from her connecting flights to Detroit. But the attendant put his daughter on the wrong connecting flight in Phoenix, McDaniel said.
"She brought it to the attention of the attendant. He told her this was the right gate. She recognized she was on the wrong flight when the plane landed and the pilot welcomed everyone to Orlando."
So you see, she DID point it out, only to be told she was on at the RIGHT gate, when clearly she was NOT.
And to blame the CHILD for what happened, are you
Also, from the same article:
Without parental consent, AmericaWest could not put Woods on another airline that had a direct flight to Detroit, Sabourin said. So Woods was flown on an AmericaWest flight that connected through Las Vegas. That flight arrived in Detroit at 7 a.m. EDT Sunday, more than 18 hours after her original flight left Los Angeles.
Sure, without parental consent. Sounds like a good exscuse
to me. Citing regulations saying why they couldn't bring the situation to a better ending.. BTW, doesn't NWA codeshare with HP? Seems to me HP should have done a better job trying to contact the parents. I.E.. Information, Internet phone books, even local (MCO and DTW) law enforcement working together to bring this to a happier ending. God. I feel sorry for her. I can see why she'd be in tears..
And to top it all off,
Sabourin said the airline has still been unable to contact McDaniel, but would like to refund the price of the child's ticket and give each of Woods' parents free tickets and a vacation package, in addition to the $400 ticket voucher.
Yeah.. Sounds like a "please don't sue us" move to me.
And before I forget, Thanks Charlieduke for the support.
I'm probably gonna get reamed for this, but if someone did this to my little brother or one of my cousins, (all between 7-12 years old) they would pay dearly.
