Oh oh. I thought we were all through with airline issues. Alaska Airlines
ought to know better.

Hi Marci, just wanted you to know that I was asked to leave the Alaska
Airlines flight 667 from Dallas to Seattle this evening because of the NFB
I had stored away the cane by the window seat but before the plane would
take off, one of the crew member, Byron, asked me to hand over the cane for
I gave him the cane but asked for his name. He gave me his name but it
bothered him and he brought a second staff member to speak to me. I told him
that I have already given the cane. He told me that I had asked for their
names; therefore, they are going to take me off the plane. I assume that
they were looking for an apology from me for having asked their names.
After I got off the plane with my two younger boys, Byron followed me to
the gate and told me that he would like to resolve the issue. I told him
that I want to get home this evening but now I can't because he has taken
me off the last flight of the day to Seattle.
He told me that he could book me on the American Airlines flight next
morning. I told him that I can take care of it myself.
I did later get seats on the morning American Airlines flight for
tomorrow, and we are staying at Wyndham overnight.
Talk to you more when I get in tomorrow,
