The boy was just over 2-years old and was deemed to be out of control by the flight staff.

The boy’s mother, Janice Farrell, was not happy to say the least as they were escorted off the plane.

The mother stated that the crew was not very understanding of the boy and how he was acting.

During the flight, the pilot came on and stated that there was a woman with a child on the plane. He then said a child was out of control, and they would have to turn the plane around.

American Airlines, the parent company of American Eagle, has apologized to Farrell.
