NH Family Forced Off Flight for Unmasked Toddler

A Portsmouth woman is demanding an apology from American Airlines after she said she was forced off her flight home because her 2-year-old son would not wear his mask.

Rachel Starr Davis said she was in tears as she tried to get her son Lyon to wear a mask while the airline staff threatened to remove her from her flight to Manchester from Charlotte, North Carolina, last week. She said airline staff and the captain had passengers get off the plane and then re-board without Davis, her son and her mother April when Lyon would not wear the mask.

“I tried repeatedly, begged him, bribed him, pleaded with him, did everything I could while he was screaming,” Davis, 34, wrote on Instagram in a post that garnered more than 180,000 likes.
