OldHickory's Comments

The child's autism is irrelevant to the story, since he wasn't removed from the plane because he was autistic. If the kid is running around in the aisles, for whatever reason, and is injured due to turbulence, the airline could be liable (or at least have to defend itself in court).

Safety regulations are applicable to all passengers, autism notwithstanding. Presumably, this mother doesn't let her child cross the street against a red light "because he's autisitic".

She and her son were dealt a bad hand and they'll have to adapt to it and not expect the rest of the world to adapt to them. I'm sure the child could be mildly sedated for future flights, and if not, I guess they can't fly. There are other ways to get around.

It's rare that an airline does anything with which I agree but on this occasion, the pilot did the right thing.
