Welcome to Mom to Mom's Tuesday Coffee Break!

There's a family going to Disney World to celebrate the birthday of the
5 year old daughter. The family paid for their tickets 7 months in advance to
ensure they would be seated together. But American Airlines changed the
flight schedule and separated the child from her family. To "fix" this there is an additonal $60 Premium Seating fee (aka you-get-to-sit-with-your-child fee).

1. What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you read this story?

2. Does this change how you feel about commerical flying?

3. Would you pay the fee upfront and move on or would you demand that
they keep your family together and not pay the fee?



While you share your thoughts with us be sure to let us know what you
would like us to serve you!!

We hope you have fun and enjoy your time with us!!

 1)The first thing was what a terrible company American Airlines is.

 2) No just American Airlines

 3) Demand they kept us together.

This is just another reason why I hate to fly. All these "bendover fees" are ridiculous. I would request seats together at the gate, and if the situation wasn't resolved to my satisfaction, I'd swap seats with my child so that at least she could sit with one of her parents.

There's no WAY I'd pay $60!

And good for the parent for contacting the media about it!
