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.
What happened when this mom flew with her toddler on United Airlines?
