Family says they were kicked off Delta flight after argument over child’s seat

LOS ANGELES — An Orange County couple says they were kicked off a Los Angeles-bound Delta flight last month after airline staff insisted their 2-year-old son could not sit by himself, even though the family had already paid for the seat.
Brian and Brittany Schear of Huntington Beach told KABC-TV’s “Eyewitness News” they were removed from the flight with their two toddlers and had to scramble to find a hotel room. They wound up paying $2,000 for another flight home the next day, according to the report.
A video of the family’s April 23 clash with airline staff was uploaded to YouTube on Wednesday. In the clip, employees of either the airline or the airport can be heard threatening the family with arrest if they don’t immediately leave the cabin.
