AirTran Airways Complaint - Worse Airline Every - Air Travel
Airtran took off with my children without their parent in order to seat a standby pilot.
When I was seated on board, I discovered that my laptop was taken out of my bag by security, without my knowledge, and left at the security desk. The PILOT on duty escorted me off the plane to retrieve my laptop and advised that I must make it back by 5:55; my kids 11 and 5 were on the plane and the PILOT said he would wait until 5:55. I returned to the gate at 5:53 (as my cell phone will indicate due to me recording my conversation with the gate agent on my phone), and the gate agent would not let me on and the plane took off with my kids. NEVER FLY THEM because if they do this, no telling what else they are capable of doing. The passengers on the plane later told me that a pilot, who could have sat in a jump seat, was seated in my seat. A stewardess on board will testify to this effect and I will report this to CNN and the Federal Attorney General's office.
