JetBlue Flight Attendant On Power Trip Embarrasses Family

Keren Kimchy and her family, which included five adults and four children under the age of 4, were on a flight to the Dominican Republic from New York on Oct. 27 when they were reportedly escorted off a JetBlue flight.

A flight attendant first confronted Kimchy's brother-in-law as he was attempting to place a bag in the overhead compartment, Kimchy wrote in a Facebook post Oct. 27. The whole family was excited as this was Kimchy's first vacation since having her two children.

Kimchy wrote, “As we were setting down all our stuff in the overhead bins, she had asked my brother in law, with an attitude, if he could move out of the way that other passengers could go through. His responds ‘ok, could I just put my bags down.’ Immediately, she started shouting very loudly ‘this is my plan, this is my show, are we going to have a problem, if so I could move you to the next flight with no problem!’”

The attendant returned later and reportedly continued harassing the family for no reason. Finally, she claimed that the entire family was unfit to fly because of their behavior and had them escorted off the plane by police officers.

Kimchy also wrote, “I don’t think my four-year-old daughter needed to hear in the tunnel over the loud speaker a flight attendant saying now that we got the animals off we could continue our flight."

The flight attendant then left the plane to file a police report. Kimchy added that she will never fly JetBlue again. In a statement to ABC News, JetBlue explained that removing passengers from a flight is not a decision the company takes lightly.

Seems some JetBlue employees could use a refresher course on customer service.
