Delta Takes Car Seat From Mother Of Twins Then Tries To Kick Her Off Of The Plane For Not Having One

Traveling with an airline will leave even the calmest person with an aggravating story, and this mom’s definitely takes the cake! When a plane gets too full, gate workers are instructed to stow carry-on luggage under the plane, but for some reason, they took this mother-of-twin’s car seat and told her that there was no room for carry-on items. She was planning to secure the car seat on the plane but thought that the staff must know what they were doing and didn’t protest…until she boarded the flight and was told by a flight attendant that she wasn’t allowed to hold two babies.

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.”

While there is no response from Delta at this time, it has a lot of parents wondering why this situation happened in the first place! Why does air travel always have to be so stressful? We’d love to know.
