Mei shared a video she recorded inside the plane before being evicted, showing her son in his seat and screaming. She was told that she was "non-compliant", she was given the most insulting answer. Seeing that I did not stop breastfeeding him promptly, they went back and at that point must have called the captain. Fellow passengers who saw the incident unfold said they were "disgusted" by how Spirit treated the family. According to Inc. a woman named Mei Rui was traveling with her elderly parents and her two-year-old child.
They were on their way to NY for her to participate in an assignment on behalf of the MD Anderson Cancer Center. As a result, Mei's father - who she said has an aortic aneurysm and several hypertension - was rushed to a hospital after collapsing.
But the day got worse, she says.
She added: 'My dad nearly had a heart attack and collapsed on the floor.
"It wouldn't happen to my family, I can assure you", he said.
That, she said, is when the flight attendants asked her to leave the plane. In April, United Airlines made headlines when a video surfaced of security agents dragging a passenger off a plane; in 2013, an easyJet passenger alleged he was initially prevented from boarding a flight after complaining about a delay on Twitter (easyJet issued an apology and allowed him on the flight). She asked Spirit reps why she could not get back on board and she was told because she was not compliant. Then one of them approached her and said that her baby was required to be in his seat during takeoff.
'I just want to know why we are getting kicked off the plane!' Rui, who is from Shanghai but has lived in the United States since attending college, said.
"My parents and my young son are completely traumatised from this experience".
Once she was feeding, an attendant asked her to stop and buckle her son into his seat before takeoff.
"Our records indicate a passenger was removed from Flight 712 after refusing to comply with crew instructions several times during taxi to runway and safety briefing".
"We apologise for any inconvenience to our guests".
Rui told KHOU that on top of having to cancel the trip to NY, the even bigger issue was the embarrassment of being forced to leave a plane in front of other passengers.
