A mother was kicked off a Spirit Airlines flight with her elderly parents and two-year-old son for not immediately stopping breastfeeding when cabin crew asked her to put him into his seat so that they could take off.Mei Rui, 34, her son Lukas and her parents were flying from Houston, Texas, to New York City on December 8 when they were booted off the plane.They had been sitting on the tarmac for almost three hours because of a de-icing delay, she claims, when she began to breastfeed her ‘exhausted’ two-year-old son.Shortly afterwards, a flight attendant told her to stop and put him in his seat because they  claimed they were ready to take off.The mother claims the door was still open.Because of this, she asked for a few more minutes but then complied and ‘forced’ Lukas into his own seat where he began to cry for 25 minutes before a flight attendant asked them to get off.When they refused, Spirit made the entire plane disembark then reboard. In videos taken at the gate afterwards, staff can be seen laughing and refusing to tell her exactly what they had done wrong beyond saying they did ‘not comply with instructions’.They called police to escort the family away from the gate. Fellow passengers who saw the incident unfold said they were ‘disgusted’ by how Spirit treated the family.Rui, a Yale medical school graduate and cancer researcher who is also an accomplished piano player and teacher, said the ordeal was worse than Hurricane Harvey which destroyed her home and her elderly parents’ home.They were on their way to New York for her to participate in an assignment on behalf of the MD Anderson Cancer Center.After the incident at George Bush International Airport, Rui says her father was so distraught he collapsed and had to go to the hospital.In a Facebook post she wrote directly after the incident on Friday, she said: ‘This was an even more traumatic morning for us than when Harvey destroyed our homes.’My dad almost had a heart attack and collapsed on the floor. I had never imagined something like this could happen to our family.’I am heartbroken that I could not protect my old parents and Lukas from this cruelty!’In videos she shared, Lukas can be seen wailing in his seat as his Chinese grandmother tried to console him and his mother pleaded: ‘He is in his seat? What else do you guys want?’Her father, the toddler’s grandfather, watched on from across the aisle as a flight attendant told them: ‘I just need to check.’Once they had been taken off the plane, she filmed more footage at the gate.There, a Spirit employee stood in front of her with two police officers and laughed while he said: ‘It wouldn’t happen to my family, I can assure you.’Rui asked him again: ‘If you can tell me which rule I broke I will go with you.’He replied: ‘I do not have the ability to do that. No, no.’He refused to tell her exactly what she had done to break the rules, saying only that she did not ‘comply’ with instructions. He dismissed her claims that they had been throw
