A California couple were told they’d be sent to jail if they did not give up their two-year-old son’s seat on a Delta flight, they have claimed.
Brian and Brittany Schear allege they were also told their children would be taken from them, and have now demanded an apology.
It is the latest controversy around overbooked flights in the US.
Mr Schear claims a member of airline staff told him: ‘You have to give up the seat or you’re going to jail, your wife is going to jail and they’ll take your kids from you.’
Seriously, why would they sell something they don’t have? Would you patronize a business that sold you something, waited until you had it in your hands and then said “Whoops, somebody more important to us than you needs that. Give it back or we’re going to take it back and then you’re going to jail”?
