‘I Have Never Been so Humiliated in my Life!’ — Mom and Son are Kicked Off American Airlines Flight for Skin Condition

A mother and her young son were kicked off an American Airlines Flight last week as a result of their genetic skin disorder.

South Carolina mom, Jordan Flake, was traveling on a flight from El Paso, Texas to Dallas, Texas last Thursday when the flight crew grew concerned about the appearance of her skin.

Flake, who wrote about the humiliating experience on Facebook, says that she has a genetic skin condition called Ichthyosis, which dries out the skin.

After boarding the flight with no problems, Flake said she and her son Jackson sat in their seat, awaiting takeoff.
