United Airlines Blasted After What They Allegedly Did to a Mom and Her Toddler

I’ve only ever flown with a toddler once. It was more than 20 years ago and the only “fun” thing about it was being allowed to get on the airplane before everyone else. It was only a five-hour flight. I can’t imagine what it would be like to fly from Hawaii to Boston, on an 18-hour trip, with a 2-year-old.

That’s what Shirley Yamauchi had to do recently. But, despite paying $1,000 so her son Taizo could have his own seat, everything went horribly wrong and her story has ended up in the news.
