Another Airline Drama? New Jersey Family Kicked Off a Plane Over a Birthday Cake

JetBlue is the latest airline to be involved in passenger-crew incident and this time, the issue reportedly started with a birthday cake.

Minta Burke and her husband Cameron Burke along with their 2 children were reportedly asked to move the cake from the overhead bin to under a seat, on a flight to Las Vegas, Nevada.

That was when the flight attendants and the family allegedly began arguing over where the cake should be kept.

Law enforcement were eventually brought onto the airplane and the whole thing was recorded.

We were just so happy. Couldn’t wait to get to Las Vegas, and all of a sudden this occurred, and my two children are screaming, crying,” Minta said. “They’re confused not knowing what’s going on, they were traumatized.”

According to the Just Jared, all of the passengers had to deplane and the family’s tickets were refunded. The rest of the passengers were allowed back on the flight.

The family said they intend to file a lawsuit against JetBlue Airline.

    In Wendy’ s voice….if i can’t bring my .25/fl.oz mouth wash and shampoo what makes you think you can bring a damn cake on a plane post 9/11? Chile get them off this plane now…no case here cos I’m sure the lawyers won’t be calling her.

      Lilo…..I didn’t insult you I simply expressed my genuine opinion about “your comment”. I’m sorry if you felt insulted.

      There is such a thing as sensible discretion ( if the family looked like they had an explosive in the cake then many Nigerians who are in a habit of carrying food to travel should be deplaned ) There is also something called conflict management…..in the video you heard the security guard repeatedly say ” you have done nothing wrong”……I’m sure you have carried food onto a plane before…many people have…..at most tell them nicely that the cake needs to go ( I don’t understand why but it’s still better than de planing them )…..if you felt the cake had an explosive and yet it passed through TSA is it the family that should pay for it or TSA? Can’t they recheck the cake? Or just remove it?

      Think about it reasonably….this is all drama. No need to traumatize an entire family with kids because of a cake…haba.

      And to those who are quick to judge them that they are looking for lawsuit money…..I hope you know that recording events is one of the best ways to prevent similar mishaps and to have an accurate account of what happened. Did they tell you they were going to sue?

      I can’t believe Osa even called them retarded….how mean and unnecessary.

    LILO your comment isn’t bright at all and even worse that you’re quoting Wendy. A birthday cake isn’t liquid or gel, it’s a cake! It must’ve passed through the security scanner anyway…..so if they (trained security) didn’t have a problem with it why should the air host/ hostess do?
    Thank God for Uniteds lesson they would’ve been meaner to this family……
    I wonder if the rebooking included taking the cake….it seems more like a dramatic power show to me.

      No. I will respond without insulting you. That cake could have explosive in it and may not have been caught by TSA. Putting all your faith in TSA/scanners is not exactly bright.like smackdown said everyone looking for lawsuit theses damn days. Makes no damn sense.
      Toodles!

      @Osa, the family look like retards? I won’t be surprised if it’s anti-blackness worrying you.

      You guys have no empathy for others except they are white. It just shows how much dignity and respect you accord yourselves. That’s why you people like managing and suffering and never know your rights.

      They should buy the cake? Have u considered if it was given to them for free? Like a gift? To travel with the cake of course it meant so much to them. Lol

    @osa, how can you call a family “retards”. Let us be careful of what we type/say. How would you feel if your family was referred to as retards?

    Exactly Osa that was a very mean and unnecessary comment. What did they do to deserve such an insult? And did they tell you they were going to sue? Just because they’ve recorded the event so they have an accurate account of what transpired? Na wa for people o.

    @Osa you used your hands to type ”the family look like retards”??? Some people are sick but they are yet to realize.Show me your own ”unretarded” family. What is wrong with you?? Most Nigerians are so quick to be vulgar. Like they just refused to evolve. Calling someone retarded, stupid, idiot, mad, crazy is not insulting or abusive it just being vulgar, extremely vulgar and uncouth. Most people especially Nigerians mix up vulgarity and lack of manners for insults or abuse. You should watch yourself whoever you are so that your family both extended and nuclear are not tagged as retards.

      Osa you seem like a really horrible person online. I can only hope you’re pleasant in real life, otherwise it’s sympathy I feel for the people who have to deal with you every day.
      Chai!

    The crew did not have a problem with having the cake on board. The argument was about the location of the cake so I don’t see how this is a security risk.
