That's odd. I wonder how it played out and what exactly happened. Something tells me there’s more to this story. Who knows, people can be strange!

Cute kid!!!!

I read the story and according to the article, the airline admitted to it.

I think if the child is suffering any sort of emotional problems; its because his mother is crazy and he's missing his "estranged" dad. Of course, he calls out mum, mum, mum ..... because his dad is gone and 'mum' is all he has left.

If the flight attendant did it as a joke he should have been terminated. I don't know how much "emotional trauma" the kid would have suffered for being in there for ten seconds. I know my son, at that age, and my grandson would have loved it. But I can understand where it would be very scary to some kids.

Regardless of "the rest of the story" doing this was unprofessional and just thoughtless.

Take care,
Mike

The woman spoke via phone on the Gayle King Show, this am, that's where I heard about this. She vehemently denies, a hide and seek game was involved,and does not want any free anything. I can't imagine the kid would remember a thing..traumatized, I am not buying.

But, the minute the attendant, would have lifted my kid up, towards the bin, my hand would have been on his arm, saying, I don't think so buddy.
Enough poor judgement to go around....
