...who was thrilled to see a couple and their uncontrollable (she put the troll back in uncontrollable!) bratty daughter bounced off a plane as she refused to take her seat before take-off and was hitting the parents? Though I may look pregnant, I can't actually bear children, but I know from my sister's offspring what a committment they can be. As in a non-stop committment for 13 years--at least! I know that there are going to be occasional flare-ups wich even Bose noise-cancelling headphones and a Valium can't extinguish, but if your brat is prone to fits, sedate the little monster! Don't you think there should be mandatory sedation for proven wailers on any flight over two hours? Cuz if they ain't yelling, their kicking the back of your seat. So if you can't control your kid, slip them a vitamin V and show a little consideration for your fellow passengers. Or maybe they could check them with the rest of their luggage in one of those pet cages? Does anyone else think this is a good idea? Or will I once again be proven to be inhuman?

From yahoo.com:

ORLANDO, Fla. - AirTran Airways on Tuesday defended its decision to remove a Massachusetts couple from a flight after their crying 3-year-old daughter refused to take her seat before takeoff.

AirTran officials said they followed Federal Aviation Administration rules that children age 2 and above must have their own seat and be wearing a seat belt upon takeoff.

"The flight was already delayed 15 minutes and in fairness to the other 112 passengers on the plane, the crew made an operational decision to remove the family," AirTran spokeswoman Judy Graham-Weaver said.

Julie and Gerry Kulesza, who were headed home to Boston on Jan. 14 from Fort Myers, said they just needed a little more time to calm their daughter, Elly.

"We weren't given an opportunity to hold her, console her or anything," Julie Kulesza said in a telephone interview Tuesday.

The Kuleszas said they told a flight attendant they had paid for their daughter's seat, but asked whether she could sit in her mother's lap. The request was denied.

She was removed because "she was climbing under the seat and hitting the parents and wouldn't get in her seat" during boarding, Graham-Weaver said.

Julie and Gerry what a soft pair of bastards being ruled by their offspring lol. Parents today have no idea how to discipline their children they show no consideration to others what-so-ever. Yes, I know its frowned upon to smack your children in public and even illegal in some parts of the world.

So what should they do? Well nobody's talking about wrapping the little fuckers in a carpet and chucking them in a canal. No, in this day and age it's just as simple to administer a lethal injection, and there are other cases where similar measures might apply. If you've an ugly daughter, perhaps, or a son born with ginger hair, a syringe full of diamorphine might just do the trick. It's like those pregnant horrors I see in town, sitting on bollards outside Victoria Wine House with one bottle of Hooch between them, talking about boys, what sort of life are their kiddies going to have with a parent like that. If I had my way I'd get one of them back to my house and turn my hairdryer on full heat onto her privates. That would teach her a lesson or at least it would stop them riding their bikes two abreast on the pavement whem I'm struggling with my shopping.

I just love how the parents said "we just needed more time to calm our daughter."

How much time do they need?? The plane has to take off on schedule, and it's not going to wait around for their suburban, SUV-driving asses to soothe their little bitch and take her to her "safe place." The self-entitlement of these folks never ceases to amaze...

And then they said they'd never fly AirTrans again. No problem--I doubt they'd be allowed back on!

I think it was a great idea to remove them.........and I would take it a bit further - I'll take the husband and do whatever the hell I want to him and the authorities can force the mother and dopey daughter to join the church of scientology, let them learn to behave via L Ron's laws.
that'l teach em.

Hopefully this will set a precedent and other airlines will begin forcing parents to control these types of berserk kids.

Perhaps its Heathcliff from Withering Heights looking for his Kathy.

Aaron, move to Scotland the place is absolutely inundated with them! I'm more tolerent to them than I make out to be, after all, my sister married a ginger and has bred from him too! and out of the litter two are ginger! We all have fetishes for something or other, I adore natural blonde haired men with small turned up noses, I just go weak at the knees for them, my friend Carmen loves those African "Looky Looky" men that sell tat on the beaches abroad, she's convinced that they are trannies because they wear long flowing gowns with a floral print that resemble 1960's wallpaper, my mother likes Julie Andrews and my gran use to boil her "smalls" on the hob! or in her case "Larges"

All these idiots. The brat would not be seated; a federal requirement before take-off. Parents had over 15 minutes after boarding to calm the brat, they were not successful.

The kid is a brat. Listen to the background on news video interviews of the parents, she never shuts up. Mom also comes off like a rich brat. Losers!
