Woman Says United Airlines Overreacted to Autistic Daughter

24 12.05.2015 Инфо

An Oregon woman says United Airlines overreacted when it diverted a flight and removed her family from a plane after she and the crew had problems finding her autistic 15-year-old daughter something to eat. Donna Beegle said the teen, Juliette, can be a picky eater and sometimes lashes out if she doesn't get what she wants. Beegle is calling for training for airline employees on dealing with people who have autism. United, however, said flight crews did make special concessions for the girl but ultimately made the best decision for the safety and comfort of the rest of its customers. United added that the family of four was booked on another flight to Portland with a different another carrier.
