Mother Is Told To Get Off The Flight For Having Twins
Kids can be quite a handful. No one is going to challenge that. Parents often dread going on long journeys, especially a flight, for fear of their kids misbehaving.
Traveling with kids in a car is bad enough, traveling with kids in a flight is a nightmare!
Smaller kids always need to be kept occupied so they won’t be a nuisance. Infants need constant attention. And in addition to that, if you’re boarding a flight you also have all your papers and luggage to handle!
However, matters can get so much worse when twins are involved.
One mom brought along a car seat with her twins on a flight, and she was told that the airplane didn’t have room for the seats..
As a result she had to board the flight with her twins cradled in her arms, and then she was told something even more horrifying!
Mackenzie Murphy a fellow passenger in the flight saw everything that happened and communicated the story in Love What Matters.
Her post read:
Well, yesterday’s supposed-to-be easy day of travel turned into an incredibly long day of travel home.
This restored my faith in humanity.
Yesterday, this woman on my flight had twin babies, probably under 6 months, not so sure of the age.
It was a very packed flight so they started taking carry on luggage to store under the plane.
A gate worker took this woman’s car seat, meaning she would now have to hold both babies since they weren’t old enough to sit up on their own in a seat.
When she sat down on the plane, a flight attendant immediately told her she couldn’t hold both babies, and would have to leave the flight.
A mother sitting in front of me, with permission from the other mother, volunteered to hold one of her babies for the entire flight.
Keep in mind this was a flight that was supposed to be a quick 45 minutes.
We ended up sitting on the tarmac for 2 1/2 hours!
Without a complaint this woman fed the other woman’s baby and burped him.
Her own daughter started crying.
This mom, so calmly, went on to explain to her young daughter that ‘our job is to help other people.
This mom is all by herself with no help, and really needs another mom to help.’
She then went on to hold him, sing him songs, and then he slept the entire flight without even a cry.
My heart still feels fuzzy.
Moral of the story is when you see people needing help, do the right thing and help them.
