Arguing with United airlines can result in missing teeth so it seems the mom decided not to make a fuss.
Anyone who believes claim this is stupid.
A Hawaii teacher says she was forced to hold her 27-month-old son on her lap for three and a half hours after United Airlines gave the toddler's seat to a standby passenger.
Shirley Yamauchi says she bought the airline tickets for a teacher conference in Boston three months ago. Because children over the age of 2 are required to have their own seat, she purchased a ticket for her son, Taizo -- paying almost $1,000 each ticket.
Yamauchi said her son was clearly in his seat, but another passenger still showed up, claiming the seat was his.
"I told him that I bought both of these tickets and he tells me that he got the ticket on standby. Then he proceeds to sit in the center," she said.
The company said, "We deeply apologize to Ms. Yamauchi and her son for this experience. ....We are also working with our gate staff to prevent this from happening again."
