Long story short, the two parents could not control their two children before the flight could take off. The pilot found that two kids who could not sit down and be calm on the plane as a liability for the flight and decided to kick the family off the flight. They had to stay an extra night in their vacation destination and buy a new set of plane tickets.
Frankly, I'm sorry for the family but I don't think JetBlue was in the wrong for doing what they did. If someone is causing an issue on a plane then the decision as to what to do with them goes to the airline in question. As for children it's up to the parents to control their kids, not their fault that they're kids were having a tantrum but still their problem. What do you all think?

Lesson. Drug your kids before flying.

There's also this thing going around that will allow restaurants to ban families (with babies/toddlers) on certain nights. Of course, they're high class restaurants. Or if a family can't control their kid the restaurant is allowed to kick them out because of the noise. I think that's perfectly okay too. No one wants to hear a loud baby crying while they're eating a pricey meal.

Tough all around. Needless to say if I was out 2,000 dollars because my kid decided to drop a tantrum at a very inopportune moment, I would not be a happy camper. But that's a child for you, unfortunately. They're sweet and wonderful and adorable and rewarding...and messy and horrible and inconvenient and expensive all in one package.
