Family kicked off flight: Delta Airlines apologizes

Delta is the latest airline to face fallout from an on-plane dispute, after a family that was forced off an overnight flight from Maui to California posted video that saw the crew say agents would put the parents in jail and place their children in foster care.

The airline is offering compensation and an apology to Brian Schear and his family after Schear posted the eight-minute video on YouTube Wednesday. In it, Schear and crew members argue over whether the seat he bought for his 18-year-old son could instead be used by his 2-year-old. The airline wanted to put another passenger in the seat.

"I'm not trying to cause a problem," Schear is heard saying on the plane as it sat on the tarmac in late April. "I believe in standing up for what's right, and I paid for the seat."

Early in the Maui video, Schear is seen being told that if he doesn't abide by the crew's order to give up a seat occupied by his toddler (in a car seat), he and his family would be kicked off the plane. With armed security personnel standing in the aisle of the plane, Schear says the airline would need to remove them.

"Then it's going to be a federal offense," a crew member tells him. "I mean, you and your wife will be in jail and your kids will be put in foster care."

"Wait," Schear says. "So we're gonna be in jail, and my kids are gonna be what?"

"It's a federal offense if you don't abide ..." the crew member answers — as Schear cuts her off to say, "I bought that seat."

In his posting of the video that was filmed by his wife, Brittany, Schear wrote, "The end result was we were all kicked off the flight. They then filled our four seats with four customers that had tickets but no seats. They oversold the flight. When will this all stop?"
