Airline Refuses To Let Dad And Newborn On Flight. Elderly Woman Says ‘You’re Coming With Me’

I love stories like this one. A woman opened her heart and home to a complete stranger and a newborn child when they had nowhere to turn.

Ruben Swift lives in Cleveland. He flew to Phoenix to pick up his infant daughter, Ru-Andrea who was just four days old. Ruben had been granted custody of his baby girl, but a policy stipulated by Frontier Airlines says that an infant must be at least seven days old before they will be approved to fly.

Ru-Andrea was released from the hospital; he had a note to verify this, but the airline wouldn’t budge. They would need to wait three days before returning to Cleveland. This left the new father with a problem: they had no accommodations arranged.

Joy Ringhofer is a volunteer at Banner University Medical center where Ru-Andrea was born. Joy and  Ruben met when Ruben arrived to pick up his little one.

“I was rocking her when her father came in, and we sort of made a connection right away,” Joy told  CBS Phoenix affiliate KPHO.
