When Arielle Noa Charnas, a fashion blogger for SomethingNavy brought her daughter onto a Delta flight, she thought that she was prepared.
Her husband purchased a first-class ticket for the six-hour flight, hoping that the extra space would give Arielle and their daughter Ruby room to relax.
But, when her baby daughter began to cry, Arielle just couldn't console her. Soon, other first-class passengers were giving her dirty looks and shaking their head.
That's when a flight attendant approached her and asked her to vacate her seat and move to the back of the plane. According to Arielle's Instagram post, the complaints from first class passengers was the cause of this very rude request.
"On our way to LA a few days ago it was my first time flying with Ruby, I had a screaming crying sleepy baby who was so overwhelmed that she couldn't fall asleep."
"My husband and I paid for first class so that we'd have the extra space and could lay down with her - once we were boarded I was getting tons of eye rolls and head shakes from fellow passengers on @delta because my baby was crying (as if I could just look at Ruby and say okay now it's time to stop ?)."
"I tried to ignore the people until 10 minutes passed and a flight attendant came over to me and asked me and my baby to move to the back of the plane (as if the people in the back didn't matter). Give up our seats that we paid for and move."
"Apparently I was upsetting and getting a lot of complaints from the first class passengers. I started crying because I was so stressed and anxious and instead of the stewardess being helpful and compassionate she instead made the situation worse."
"I don't know what's right and wrong when it comes to flying with a baby but after telling a few people the story they were in shock."
"Thoughts? We're headed back to NYC today and we're hoping for a much better experience."
Thankfully, she stuck to her guns and did not give into the bullying attendant. She called Delta out on the treatment she received and the apparent disregard for the Economy class passengers.
Delta told People that they support all passengers. Charnas' post reached over 22,000 people and received more than 1,700 comments.
"Delta flight attendants are trained to provide safe transport and excellent customers service. We fully support all passengers traveling in the class of service for which they've paid."
