NK doesn’t get love in this board because they are a ULCC, but they have been steadily growing and have been an important game changer of aviation in the USA. They were the first ULCC in the USA, and have done a 360 job in regards to their public image.

I don't like the spin on this. NK would likely have been fined and been responsible for their removal costs if it did not come get this family. Glad the little girl is okay.

Why would they have been fined?.. the young girl needed medical assistance and that was probably the closest diversion point
