Brian Schear is the latest victim in a recent string of viral airline-related incidents. He and his family were set to travel from Hawaii to Los Angeles last week but instead were thrown off the overbooked flight.
Brian Schear is demanding an apology from Delta Airlines after he was told by an airline staffer he needed to give up his one-year-old son’s seat. He alleges he was told by the employee:
You have to give up the seat or you’re going to jail, your wife is going to jail and they’ll take your kids from you?”
What’s worse, Brian who ultimately complied with Delta’s demands accepting to carry one of his sons on his knees –was later told to get off the plane. He, his wife and children were removed from the aircraft. Mr. Schear was then forced to book a hotel room that night and buy three additional plane tickets the following day, he did not receive a refund.
Brian who was traveling with his wife and two sons ages one and two, told media “We never thought it was going to get to the point where they were actually getting us all off the flight. As we were leaving the plane, there’s four or five passengers waiting for our seat. The bottom line is, they oversold the flight.”
Brian Schear is married to Brittany Schear, together they have three sons. The couple revealed to reporters the oroginal plan was to seat their younger children on their laps, however , when their teenage son chose to travel on another flight, they seated 2-year-old Grayson in his seat instead.
Brian Schear of Huntington Beach currently resides in Orange County with his family. He and Brittany Schear celebrated their nuptials in 2016 after getting engaged the previous year.
According to his LinkedIn, Brian Schear is the President at ConditionReports.com
Brian and Brittany decided to share their story on social media and also posted video of the incident on YouTube.
His wife wrote the ordeal on Facebook saying:
This is what delta did to us last week. Airlines don’t give a **** about their customers.
Mid night kicked us off the flight with 2 babies because we wouldn’t let them take our sons seat away because they over booked the flight. They wanted us to remove our 1 year old so they could give the seat to someone else. Even though we paid for that seat. We did not receive a refund and had to purchase all new tickets the next day. It was the middle of the night, we had no hotel to go to or a car.
Our 2 year old was already asleep on the plane and our 1 year old just wide eyed watching everyone talk. #delta #airlinesstrikeagain
Shouldn’t Brian and his family receive more than an apology from Delta?
