SEATAC — A 3-year-old boy who wouldn’t use his seat belt never got off the ground on an Alaska Airlines flight at Sea-Tac Airport.
The pilot returned to the gate Saturday and asked the father and the boy to get off.
The father, Mark Yanchuk of Everett, told KIRO-FM the crew overreacted.
Alaska Airlines says it was a matter of safety and the pilot would rather deal with it on the ground than in mid-flight.
The story was first reported by KIRO-TV.
