Woman alleges she was kicked off flight for bfing - Page 2

post #21 of 172
I want to hear from Bullfrog! (that is who posted about this right?)
post #22 of 172
Well - there you have it folks - in full detail


My latest information is that the Vermont Human Rights Comission is backing her!!!!
I don't know exactly to what extent (don't blast me for not having all of the details please!).

Also - she's been interviewed by all of our local stations and it's all over the news here.

Also - she's going to be on Good Morning America tomorrow (Wednesday). If that changes I'll let you know.

Go Emily Go!

I just ran across a local write-up of this story in our NM news. Nothing there that wasn't said already, but it is nice to see they are covering it too (it had a link from the front page of the website)!

Sent my letter to both Freedom and Delta. UGH.

Delta also doesn't offer berevement flights for people going to a funeral. When FIL died in October I called all the airlines, and the operator for Delta told me that the ticket (for just dh) would be $1700 because we didn't book it in advance (he sounded Indian, does anyone know if they've outsourced?) I got mad and said, "I'm sorry that my FIL didn't give us a heads up as to when he was going to die!"

The discrete comment is bs! I also wouldn't use a blanket on an airplane, they're nasty! I think I read somewhere that the blankets are washed every 3-5 flights! They make that airborne stuff to take after getting off of ONE flight, how many of those pills would you have to take after using one of those blankets?

Total BS. It makes me livid.

Most call centers are in India and the Philippines.

Ok, I had GMA on all morning (except maybe the last 15 minutes when I took a shower...) and I didn't see any spot on this. Did they interview her?

You're probably right. I nurse my baby on airplanes all the time. I'm not even all that discreet, I know parts of my breast show. I've Never had anyone say anything to me...That's just crazy.

I think Delta needs a nationwide nurse-in

I just started watching at 8 (central) and no mention yet, but they did mention the picture of Elizabeth Vargas, and they'll be talking about it soon they said.

Actually this women clearly had issues period. I have nursed both my children past two in airplanes, trains, museums, etc. Never had a problem at all. Some folks just have their own issues with breasts no matter the age :

I am most outraged that she abused her "power" (flight attendants now have more power than ever) because of her OWN agenda :

I saw the Elizabeth Vargas pic. She said it was her head on someone else's body and that she did breastfeed (past tense and her babe is an infant still) but that she did not appreciate her head being used. She did, however, say it was a good article. At least she did not say anything negative about breastfeeding.
