That wasn't an infant, that was a 2 year old. Either way, the mother should have asked for a manager or gate agent. Never happened to me in over 100 flights with kids.
How many of them were in economy class?

If I was on the flight I would have pointed out the guilty parties right away.  :)

People, please put an end to this madness
You're telling this to DDF’ers who generally purchase lie-flats even for an unborn.

I have a problem with the original details.
If my boarding pass says my seat is 23B, then I go there and say, "Excuse me, you're in my seat."  Or I the flight attendant can do it for me.
Why the confusion on which seats were being used without the right to do so?

On  Southwest do the tickets say lap child or just infant?
Kids fly free, maybe in a seat...

A couple of times I've been approached at the gate before boarding starts for WN flights and been told it's full and my child will need to be on a lap (of course, they're extremely apologetic when I say the kid has a seat). This is obviously a common issue.

Before you say it, no, it has nothing to do with me looking obviously Jewish. These have been Midwest airports without many Chassidim flying.

I've been rudely approached and told I can't bring on my car seat and then when I explain that the baby has a ticket, they get ruder and make up a million stories about how there's still a problem

Having never been there yourself, how would you know what that's like?

Good question.

It was a WN flight....
Which means there is no assigned seating and therefore it's a first come first serve.

And there i would think...



1. I can get the seat for free.
2. Let someone else hold their kid for 3 hours until they come and force me.

Now I'm not trying to give a free pass and say they were 100% fine, what I am saying is that it can be understood and I don't see the big sin here, because if there would have been assigned seating this situation wouldn't happen so WN sort of has a part in this as well.

Okay okay I get it i should not turn this on WN they are a good airline but there is no perfect in this world.

P.s. in my WN flight recently I sat next to a 400 lb(i think, maybe KG) man, I guarantee that you had a better flight then me mister chillul hashem.

If u work for a living, why kill urself working?
