AIR­LINES APOL­O­GIZES FOR CLASH OVER STROLLER

Metro USA (Boston) - - NEWS -

Amer­i­can Air­lines apol­o­gized to a pas­sen­ger and sus­pended an em­ployee af­ter a video show­ing an on­board clash over a baby stroller went vi­ral, in the lat­est em­bar­rass­ment for a U.S. car­rier over how it treated a cus­tomer.The clip, posted on Face­book on Fri­day by a by­stander aboard the flight, shows a woman in tears with a young child in her arms, and a man emerging from his seat to con­front a male flight at­ten­dant who ap­par­ently wrested the stroller from the woman. Face­book user Su­rain Adyan­thaya, who posted the video, wrote that the flight at­ten­dant had force­fully taken the stroller, hit­ting the woman with it and just miss­ing her child. That se­quence of events did not ap­pear on the clip. What it shows is the uniden­ti­fied man stand­ing up and yelling at the flight at­ten­dant: “You do that to me and I’ll knock you flat.”
