Mark Yanchak, son, 3, kicked off flight after his son wouldn't wear seatbelt
SEATTLE (AP) - A 3-year-old boy who refused to use his seatbelt never got off the ground when he and his father boarded an Alaska Airlines flight at an airport in Seattle.
The pilot returned to the gate at Sea-Tac Airport on Saturday and asked the father and the boy to get off.
Alaska Airlines says it was a matter of safety and the pilot would rather deal with it on the ground than in mid-flight.
The father, Mark Yanchak of Everett, told KIRO-FM the crew overreacted.
