JetBlue Mixes Up 2 Young Boys, Sending Them to the Wrong Desinations


By: Josh King

JetBlue is under fire after it reportedly mixed up two children and ended up sending them to the wrong cities.

Five-year-old Andy Martinez Mercado was traveling home to New York from the Dominican Republic. But he ended up in Boston, over 200 miles away.

When his mother arrived at the airport to pick up her son, the airline presented her with a different 5-year-old boy.

According to the BuzzFeed it took more than three hours, but JetBlue eventually found out where Andy was and "immediately took steps to assist the children in reaching their correct destinations."

JetBlue has refunded the flights for both children and although the kids were "always under the care and supervision of JetBlue crew members", the boy's mother says she will never use the airline again and is considering suing for negligence.
