I just read this online. ABC News: Crying Child and Her Parents Removed From Flight I've had my son throw a tantrum on a plane when it was about to take off...fortunately I was allowed to hold him and restrain him and he fell asleep shortly after. I was totally frazzled and didn't know what set him off. He was probably tired after 14-15 hours of international flight. I drank two complimentary glasses of wine and that immediately made me feel better! Do any of you have war stories?
