JetBlue apologizes to mom after runway incident


JetBlue Airways has apologized to a Newton mother who said a flight attendant refused to let her young daughter leave her seat to use the restroom as the jet sat on the tarmac, forcing the toddler to urinate in her seat. The airline contacted Jennifer Devereaux on Saturday and offered to donate $5,000 to the charity of her choice, according to Sebastian White,a JetBlue spokesman. Devereaux did not respond to a phone message Saturday evening, but earlier in the day she took to Twitter to express her feelings: “Happy Tears! Amazing news. @JetBlue called [and] a really nice lady apologized to me! She was so kind, a mother as well!”
