This week, American Airlines picked on a mum and baby who had a skin condition and chucked them off the flight they had booked.
In this miserable scenario, a South Carolina woman was removed from her flight because of the rare genetic skin disorder that affects both her and her baby.
An airline staffer apparently approached her about her “rash” caused by ichthyosis, which causes extremely dry, thick and scaly skin and was consequently told that she and her baby we wouldn’t be able to fly without a letter from her doctor and that they had to get off the plane. You can read more of this story on Fox News and on this poor lady’s facebook page.
American has since apologised, refunded her trips and have “upgraded them on their American flights” so they did the right thing in the end.. but the whole situation was pretty unforgivable in the first place!
