    Default Baby's Recurring 'Bye Bye, Plane' Comment Got Them Kicked Off Airplane

    ATLANTA — The mother of a 19-month-old boy says she and her son were kicked off a plane after she refused a stewardess' request to medicate her son to keep him from talking.

    The mother says she wants answers and action after she and her baby were kicked off a plane.

    Kate Penland said she was glad to board the plane in Houston after an 11-hour delay to visit her father in Oklahoma. But she said a rude and aggressive flight attendant caused her to get to Oklahoma a day late.

    Penland thinks her 19-month-old son, Garren, has a bubbly personality. But Penland said when they were aboard a Continental Express plane, a flight attendant became annoyed by Garren’s personality when he kept saying three words.

    “As we started taxiing, he started saying ‘Bye, bye plane,’ said Penland. “At the end of her speech, she leaned over the gentleman beside me and said, ‘It’s not funny anymore. You need to shut your baby up.’

    In disbelief, Penland asked the woman if she was kidding. It was then, Penland said, the flight attendant went too far.

    “She then said, ‘You know, it’s called baby Benadryl. And I said, 'Well, I'm not going to drug my child so you have a pleasant flight.'

    Penland said when the other passengers began speaking up on her behalf, the flight attendant got angrier and soon announced they were turning around and that Penland and Garren were going to be taken off the plane.

    “I was crying, I was upset and I was thinking, ‘What am I going to do? I don’t have anything with me, I don’t have anymore diapers for the baby, no juice, no milk,” said Penland.

    The young mother said she later learned the flight attendant told the pilot that she had threatened her. Penland said that never happened.

    Express Jet Airlines released a statement that said, "We received Ms. Penland’s letter expressing her concerns and intend to investigate its contents."

    A fellow passenger told Channel 2's Rachel Kim none of the other passengers had problems with Garren and that Penland never threatened the flight attendant.

    I wonder what that 19-month old knows. You know the terrorists prefer to begin development at a young age so something like this doesn't surprise me. I hope they send this kid down to Guantanamo, hook him up with some electrodes and do a fierce interrogation. Yeah, who's laughing now, kid? "Bye, bye, baby"




    ..in all seriousness, what a ridiculous story.

    That stewardess needs to look for another job, one where she doesn't have to deal with people. I hope she gets fired.

    Utterly fucking ridiculous...

    is wrong with people today?! How exactly did our society go from 9/11 to thinking a 19-month old has 'knowledge' of a terrorist plot?! Jeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeezzzzzzzz...

    Before we start demanding some person lose their ability to pay their bills by being fired, might we stop to consider that we have ONE side of this story, supported by some nosy busybody who desparately wanted to jump in front of a reporter to get some attention, and who may not have even seen the actual incident that got her booted?

    Frankly, this one stinks of being true, but I've seen enough of this shit twisted around until it barely resembles anything remotely accurate that I'm willing to wait and see. Not that we'll ever hear about this story again, since either the airline will cough up some dough to avoid further publicity, or the woman will go away because she wasn't being truthful about what happened, and God forbid the press print THAT story...

    Agreed. With barely a handful of "facts", a news story hits the wire and presto: Instant indignation by the rightously offended.

    However, I will aknowledge the general unease many folk feel in regard to travel, particularlly plane travel, since 9/11. One must admit, a small, inocent child repeating the words "Bye, Bye plane" is a tad too "Stephen King", even for me.

    While asking to drug the child is an over-reaction, a simple "For the comfort of your fellow passengers, would you please address your child" would have sufficed, and most certainly was called for.

    A stressed out flight attendant made a poor decision. A woman traveling with a 19 month old child no doubt was equally on edge. Sadly, no-one with a cooler head intervened, leading to the plane being turned around and everyone inconvenienced, obviously not the first time this year an airline has miss-served it's passengers.

    Heh, when my family and I went to Chicago the follwoing Summer after 9/11, my young boy who was about 3 at the time kept saying "we're all gonna die" before we took off. Totally out of character for him as he loved flying. Nothing happened although we got some wierd looks from other passengers and we managed to get him quieted down before takeoff but *I* wanted to get off the plane! I felt like I was in an out take from "Final Destination" or something.

    sounds like the good guys foiled another plain hijacking to me...Follow me here...
    the terrorists recruit a young white woman to take over a plain and fly it into something. They do this because they know that Muslim men aren't allowed on airplanes anymore. To give her even more cover, they give her a baby. A few minutes after take off she was to unleash the plan but the baby ruined it because it was so excited at the prospect of blowing up a building with the plain that it kept saying "bye bye plain." As in...bye bye motherfuckers, we ALL GONNA DIE! OOOH YEAH!"

    I say give that stewardess a fucking medal and a trip to the Lincoln bedroom! Goooooodddd Blesssss America!! Stand beside her and guide her bitches!!!

    An 8-year-old boy expecting to catch a plane home is denied entry for appearing on a terrorist no-fly list, reported http://MyFoxKansasCity.com.

    Bryan Moore was set to catch his first plane trip when he arrived at an airport in Cortez, Colorado to fly home after visiting his sister, said the report.

    "They almost got me scheduled in and then the lady just bowed her head and said, 'We can't get you on this plane, you're a terrorist,'" Moore said.

    The soon-to-be third grader was red flagged as a threat to national security because his name popped up on the national watch list.

    According to the Transportation Security Administration, no children are on the terrorist watch list. The TSA said if a child's name matches up, it's up the airline to make the necessary changes and let them board the plane.

    "It's not really fair that I couldn't get home because another man in the world was a terrorist," Moore said.

    Great Lake Airlines eventually cleared up the situation, but the plane had already left, making him wait another day to come home.
