PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – The crew of a Skywest-operated Alaska Airlines plane asked Port of Portland police to meet their incoming flight from Long Beach, Calif., after two young children refused to stay in their seats and buckle their seat belts.
Airline spokeswoman Marianne Lindsey says port police talked with the family of two adults and two children, aged 3 and 8, after the flight landed Tuesday night at Portland International Airport. Lindsey says an Alaska Airlines supervisor then talked to the family about the need to comply with federal air regulations that children must remain buckled in their seats for safety.
The spokeswoman says the supervisor then escorted the family to make their connecting Alaska Airlines flight from Portland to Seattle. Lindsey says that flight was uneventful.
She declined to release any additional information about the family, citing privacy concerns.
