Have you read or heard this one?
This family had 6 people. They “thought” three of the kids should ride for free because kids under 2 ride for free. The children riding for free had to sit in their parents lap. These parents were going to put either one of the 2 year old twins or the 8 month old in the 3 year old’s lap. The other rule is the one riding for free has to be with a paying adult. So while two of the kids would have been okay, the three year old didn’t pay for a ticket.
It really is too bad that the person who checked them in was asleep at the switch because it could have been avoided that way. BUT….
According to the story, plenty of people offered to help. One lady said she’d hold one of the kids. Another offered to buy a ticket. They just wanted to take off. This flight was delayed over this for an hour.
I don’t know about you but there’s no way I’d travel like this. I’d never expect a 3 year old hold a 2 year old or a baby for an entire flight. Seriously???? Nor would I trouble a stranger nor would I want a stranger holding my child for a flight NOT TO MENTION the safely factor of a child holding a child. I sometimes wonder where people were when the good Lord was handing out brains!
What do you think? Would you travel like this?
