MIAMI (AP) — A spokesman for the family of an 18-month-old girl who was pulled off a flight because airline employees thought her name was on the U.S. no-fly list says the girl's parents do not plan to take any legal action.
Rick Abbott told The Associated Press Friday that the family is looking for an apology or an explanation from JetBlue, which blamed the problem on a computer glitch.
An airline employee boarded the Newark, N.J.-bound flight before it departed Tuesday evening from Fort Lauderdale, telling the family their toddler was on the federal list that includes thousands of known or suspected terrorists.
JetBlue says employees were following proper protocol. The U.S. Transportation Security Administration says the girl never was flagged by the agency.
