10:25 AM Pt – United Airlines responded to the incident by saying, “The health and safety of our employees and customers is our highest priority, so we have multi-layered policies that should be worn by everyone aged two and over.” “
They continued, “We are investigating this particular incident and have been in contact with the family. We also refunded their tickets and returned their car seat and bags.”
One last thing … the sources affiliated with the airline tell us, the family did not forbid traveling with them. We have been told that the UAE is far from the only airline with this approach … based on the CDC Rex it is pretty much across the board here in the US.
It was insane … a family was evicted from a United Airlines jet and banned for life … all because their daughter refused to wear a mask … and she was 2!
Eliz Orban And her husband boarded a jet from Denver to Newark with their little girl. The parents tried desperately to get their daughter to wear the mask, but she did not have it. Watch the video … Elise’s husband did everything he could very well … to no avail.
A flight attendant came up to them and announced that they were booting from the jet. Eliz’s husband tried to explain that he had done his part, and he did not want to cover his daughter’s face, but the flight attendant did not budge. They had to go.
Get it now … United will not remove their luggage from the cargo hold and it will include their daughter’s car seat. And, on top of that, Elise said United banned them from flying permanently.
These are mixed messages Driving them crazy. Governors keep pre-schools open because they say young children are not at high risk, though. The CDC recommends that children 2 or older wear face masks, but this child is only 2 years old.
