Airline Ruthlessness

A friend of mine is planning, with his family (wife and two kids) a trip to Disney World this summer.

After the recent unpleasantness on an ATA flight from Orlando to Boston, my friend wanted to make sure his kids, especially his young son, understood the importance of behaving on the airplane.

He explained to his son how this family's child, of similar age, was misbehaving so badly that the whole family got thrown off the flight.

This hit home harder than my friend thought it would. His son was wide-eyed and speechless.

My friend asked if he understood now why he should behave on the place.

His son nodded, then asked in a quiet voice, "But they got parachutes, didn't they?"
