Woman Allegedly Kicked Off Plane After Breast-Feeding Her 2-Year-Old

Woman Allegedly Kicked Off Plane After Breast-Feeding Her 2-Year-Old

Mei Rui, a concert pianist and cancer researcher, was traveling from her home to Newark along with her elderly parents and 2-year-old son when they were all kicked off their Spirit Airlines flight after flight attendants asked her to stop breastfeeding. She's been performing classical piano since the age of 10 and received a Grammy nomination in 2015, according to her biography.

All this and she still managed to make it to a flight scheduled to leave at 6:30 am, so she could participate in a recording related to a cancer study in NY.

"It's not like I was resistant, I put him in the seat", she said.

"I said as soon as your plane doors are closed, I'll put him in his seat", Rui says.

Apparently, in the time it took her to finish breastfeeding and buckle her son back in his seat, the flight attendant informed the captain of the "situation" and was told to remove the mother from the plane. At that point, he started to cry as she predicted.

He refused to tell her exactly what she had done to break the rules, saying only that she did not "comply" with instructions. With her cellphone camera rolling, Rui asked why she was being asked to leave if the baby was strapped in.

'Because you were not compliant, ' was the answer she was given. When he started crying, the flight crew told Rui to get off the plane.

"You just don't have to treat people that way", she said in the video.

But the airline representative declined to give more details. I had never imagined something like this could happen to our family.

After leaving the plane and encountering waiting police officers, Rui asked the airline representative why she was kicked off the plane.

Ms Rui said the family's luggage was never returned and when they got home her father collapsed and had to be rushed to hospital.

Spirit Airlines stood by its decision to move Rui and her son in a statement provided to Houston's KHOU station. Deal with it. The stress of the day wasn't over either.

"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". To ensure the safety of our guests and crew, FAA regulations and airline policies require all passengers stay seated and buckled during takeoff and landing. We reviewed multiple accounts from the crew and other guests sitting nearby and we apologize for any inconvenience caused by this issue.

'As a courtesy, we've issued a full refund to the customer in question'.

Rui missed her chance to participate in the cancer study.
