Here's the statement I submitted to Delta. If I receive a response, I'll post it! Thanks everyone for your support!
One of the flight attendants tried to force me to take my baby out of a carrier while I was breastfeeding. At this time, the plane was NOT taking off, landing, or taxiing. In fact, the seat belt sign was off. She was rude, was disrespectful, bullied me, and had me escorted off the plane with my baby when we arrived at our gate. Separated from my husband and 2 year old, they had no idea what was happening and it scared my daughter. Then we almost missed our next flight and were not able to sit down to eat lunch, since I had to make a statement with the Memphis police and airport security.
I have shared this with my friends on Facebook and others have received similar treatment by a Delta attendant. Another Delta agent shared the FAA regulations with me and I learned that I had not violated it in anyway and was unjustly put through this situation.
I'd like to receive a response from Delta and to have this attendant held accountable for her actions, so she will not treat any other vulnerable mothers on future flights this way. It's hard enough to travel with children. This treatment was unacceptable.
