JetBlue Passengers Kicked Off Flight Over A Birthday Cake
It appears airline troubles are becoming a trend nowadays as hardly any week goes by without somebody being kicked off a plane for a ridiculous reason. In the latest instance, a family was asked to deplane a JetBlue flight for allegedly “improperly storing” a birthday cake.
According to a report published by British paper the Daily Mail, Cameron and Minta Burke and their two children were aboard a JetBlue flight bound for Las Vegas to celebrate Minta’s 40th birthday when the couple had a disagreement with flight attendants as to where the cake should be stored.
According to the couple, they received conflicting advice from different flight employees. They said that one flight attendant asked them to move the cake from the overhead bin to the floor, while another flight employee came to reprimand her colleague and the Burkes for improper placement of the birthday cake.
After a disagreement started between the Burkes and the employee, the airline staff asked the family to get off the plane. Port Authority officers were called to the scene and questioned the family.
In a video recorded by Cameron and posted on Twitter by local ABC New York reporter CeFaan Kim, it can be heard that one of the officers is telling an airline employee that he sees “no wrongdoing” on the part of the Burke family.
Airline staff, nonetheless, made all the passengers on the full flight to exit the plane just so they could remove the Burke family from the plane.
According to the report, the family’s tickets, as well as rewards points, were refunded, although their luggage was still sent to Las Vegas, where it was collected by Minta’s mother.
The Burkes said they are planning to sue the airline and want the “flight attendant fired.”
JetBlue spokesman Doug McGraw, on the other hand, held firm that the Burkes “became agitated, cursed, and yelled at the crew, and made false accusations about a crew member’s fitness to fly.”
