New Jersey Family Allegedly Kicked Off JetBlue Flight Over A Birthday Cake (Video)

New Jersey Family Allegedly Kicked Off JetBlue Flight Over A Birthday Cake (Video)

Another day, another airline incident.

This time it involved JetBlue when a family of four was allegedly kicked off a plane over a birthday cake while traveling from New York City to Las Vegas.

Minta Burke and her husband Cameron Burke were reportedly asked to move the cake from from the overhead bin to under a seat.

That’s when the flight attendants allegedly began arguing over where to store the pastry.

“I had approached them, and I said everything was fine, and she said, ‘Sir, this does not involve you,” Cameron told ABC News 7. “When she told me I had been non-compliant, then I said, ‘Ma’am, had you been drinking?’ because her behavior was not normal.”

Law enforcement were eventually brought onto the airplane and the whole thing was recorded.

“We were just so happy. Couldn’t wait to get to Las Vegas, and all of a sudden this occurred, and my two children are screaming, crying,” Minta said. “They’re confused not knowing what’s going on – they were traumatized.”

According to the New York Daily News, all of the passengers had to deplane and the family’s tickets were refunded. The rest of the passengers were allowed back on the flight.

“Federal regulations require that the emergency equipment remain unobstructed during the flight. The customers became agitated, cursed and yelled at the crew, and made false accusations about a crewmember’s fitness to fly,” the airline said in a statement (via People). “After the customers refused to speak with a team leader about the situation, the Port Authority Police Department was called and the entire aircraft deplaned. The Captain determined the customers’ behavior demonstrated a risk for additional escalation in air and would not be allowed to fly.”

The family told the Daily News that they intend to file a lawsuit against JetBlue.
