Sometimes babies will be on flights with you and sometimes they tend to cry.
Well, United Airlines is currently under fire after a flight attendant reportedly told a passenger that her baby was not allowed to cry for more than five minutes on a flight!
According to KTVU, Krupa Patel Bala was flying on United Airlines from Sydney to San Francisco with her husband and their 8-month-old baby on September 24th.
After takeoff, while sitting in their business class seats, their baby started crying.
A flight attendant then reportedly approached her and told her it was "absolutely unacceptable," for the baby to cry.
Krupa documented the entire incident on her Facebook page, writing that the flight attendant took her back into economy class, and even lectured her on parenting.
The flight attendant told her that, "babies are not allowed to cry for more than five minutes" and that "it really stressed the crew out."
In a statement to Business Insider, United Airlines said, "We’ve been in touch with our customer via social media and United representatives met the family upon arrival to apologize, offered a refund and made it clear that the experience she relayed doesn’t reflect our commitment to serving our customers, including our youngest customers."
United Airlines' statement also added that "Young families are welcome on our flights, including in business class. We are continuing to review the incident internally and the flight attendant is being held out of service pending the investigation."
