Maribel Martinez must have been distraught when she was presented with the wrong child at JFK airport.
Martinez had flown with her son to the Dominican Republic, spent the week there, then left the boy with family for the summer. The NYC mother had paid extra to have her son escorted onto the JetBlue plane, but as she later discovered, he was escorted onto the wrong flight. Her son, 5 year old Andy Martinez, was flown over 200 miles away to Boston, while a different boy was sent to her… and you thought it was upsetting when they lost your luggage!
The mother told NBC: “When I went to pick up my son, my son wasn’t there […] I was given another boy.”
$2,100 in credit for future flights and a $475 refund was given to Ms Martinez from the airline, but she told NBC she would probably never use the airline again.
