Teen daughter removed from front of Spirit Airlines plane while uninformed mother sat in back, lawsuit claims


A 15-year-old girl is removed from a Spirit Airlines flight due to overbooking, while her unbeknownst mother and brother sit in the back of the plane — and don’t realize until halfway through the flight.

While it may sound like the scene out of a movie like Flightplan or Home Alone 2, a Michigan woman claims it happened to her.

Stacy Giordano says she was flying with her daughter and son from Fort Lauderdale, Fla. to Detroit, Mich., in April of 2018, when the family had to switch planes in Tampa, ABC 15 reports.

NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) — The Latest on the Ethiopian plane crash (all times local):

7:15 p.m.

Ethiopian Airlines says its pilots went through all the extra training required by Boeing and the U.S. aviation regulator to fly the 737 Max 8 jet that crashed this month, killing all 157 passengers.

CEO Tewolde Gebremariam said Thursday that the airline’s pilots completed the training meant to help them shift from an older model to the newer 737 Max 8.

He said the pilots were also made aware of an emergency directive issued by the U.S. regulator, the FAA, following the crash of a Boeing 737 Max 8 owned by Indonesia’s Lion Air last year.

Jet Blue pilots accused of drugging and raping female crew members in new lawsuit

HP Commission

Two female JetBlue crew members claim they and a third women were drugged by two pilots for the airline, and that one of those pilots also raped them and intentionally passed on a sexually transmitted disease, according to a lawsuit filed Monday.

The plaintiffs, referred to in the suit as Jane Doe 1, of Riverton, Utah, and Jane Doe 2, of Fort Worth, Texas, say the incident occurred in San Juan, Puerto Rico in May 2018. The women had just completed their shift on a flight from Washington, D.C., to Puerto Rico, and checked into the Intercontinental Hotel in San Juan. They then headed to the beach together, where they met Eric Johnson and Dan Watson, the defendants. After a brief chat, they learned the men were JetBlue pilots.

As Hawaii faces a ‘tipping point’ in tourism, Southwest Airlines could bring relief

 

Search Hawaii Flights and Hotels

HONOLULU — As Dallas-based Southwest Airlines ramps up its service to Hawaii with 28 daily flights by the end of May, the state is facing a problem in managing the growing number of visitors to the island who spend less money here every year.

“We’re not at a crisis point yet. We’re at a tipping point. We have so many visitors, we need to get serious about creating management programs,” said Frank Haas, a travel industry veteran who is the former marketing director at the Hawaii Tourism Authority and formerly served as an Assistant Dean at the University of Hawaii.

Haas joined James Mak, a professor emeritus at the University of Hawaii and Paul Brewbaker, a longtime economist who worked for the Bank of Hawaii, to write a nine-page white paper last month which details how Hawaii has failed to manage tourism.

“Yeah, I would even say we struck a nerve so to speak. We wrote about what a lot of (local) people are already thinking,” Brewbaker said.

Pilot who hitched a ride in cockpit saved doomed Lion Air Boeing 737 Max day before it crashed

MSC Cruises

As the Lion Air crew fought to control their diving Boeing 737 Max 8, they got help from an unexpected source: an off-duty pilot who happened to be riding in the cockpit.

That extra pilot, who was seated in the cockpit jumpseat, correctly diagnosed the problem and told the crew how to disable a malfunctioning flight-control system and save the plane, two people familiar with Indonesia’s investigation told Bloomberg.

CHICAGO (AP) — A woman who’s been dubbed a serial stowaway was sentenced Tuesday to 18 months of probation after pleading guilty to sneaking past Chicago airport security last year, boarding a plane and flying to London without a ticket.

As part of her plea deal, Marilyn Hartman, 67, can’t go to Chicago’s O’Hare or Midway airports without a ticket. She entered the plea to a criminal trespassing charge but had originally faced counts of felony theft, burglary and other charges.

“I do apologize for the airport and … causing problems for them,” Hartman told Cook County Judge Peggy Chiampas.
