I still think it has more to do with the passengers than with the FAs - not in this case, but in general, i have seen people with kids having a hard time controlling them (and themselves) to keep their mask on. I dont blame them for it, I dont think worse of them etc. just thats how it is
FTFY. Makes one wonder why non visibly looking Jews arenít singled out when traveling with 2 YO who arenít masked.

This is full story as it happened
I don't get it. 2 year olds need to have a mask on. The rules are super dumb ridiculous, but those are the rules.
You can't make a migo to get your way on a plane ;D

What did the FA do wrong?

Plenty of stories with non-Jews as well.

The video shows her eating, no?

Anyone, does no one here have any contact with anyone from the administration to raise the age of mask wearing on public transportation to ages 8-10 as in Europe?

Didn't watch. I had seen another video of her without a mask and father was saying he could have lied about her age to get a free seat, but he was honest that she turned 2 already.

Gotcha. That's different then.
But what about the older kid? Were they given an exception to the mask rule due to health reasons?

Special needs. Actually had a seizure after we deplaned and needed medical attention.

Oh c'mon. For every story of issues with a Jewish 2 year old kicked off, are probably 100 that FAs didn't enforce with a Jewish 2 year old.
It's just luck of the draw. Some FAs enforce every rule to the T, while most have empathy.

Agreed. We donít know what happened Initially with the steward ( who allegedly was taken off the flight.)

Oh come on, in a week of awful takes on this forum generalizing and stereotyping Jews, this may be the worst  yet

I didn't watch all the videos. Was there something egregious?
