HMM, THIS MIGHT JUST BE NEW MATERIAL FOR A COMMERCIAL, WANNA GET AWAY … OOPS, WRONG AIRLINE.
Jet Blue screws up royally as two unaccompanied 5-year-olds minors were put on the wrong flights. Each child flying from Santiago, Dominican Republic, one child sent to JFK and the other to Boston. The problem, their respective parents were at the opposite airports. How is this even possible? Are you telling me that no one checked the two children’s identification before they boarded the plane? Really?
A distraught New York mother says airliner JetBlue sent her 5-year-old son on the wrong flight last month as the airline company said it was investigating the incident that ended with two children in the wrong cities.
Maribel Martinez was presented with the wrong child after waiting for her son Andy to return from a family vacation in the Dominican Republic on August 17, she told the New York Daily News on Thursday.
“I thought he was kidnapped,” Martinez told the paper. “I thought I would never see him again.”
Martinez said she was greeted at John F. Kennedy airport by a child she did not recognize — but who was carrying her son’s passport.
Jet Blue said in a statement Thursday that “two unaccompanied children of the same age traveling separately from Santiago, Dominican Republic — one to New York JFK and one to Boston — each boarded a flight to the incorrect destination.”
