Flight Attendant Fired After Placing Baby in Overhead Bin Mike Richard March 9, 2011 What We're Reading 3 Comments VIRGIN Blue has sacked a male flight attendant and offered an angry mother free flights after her toddler was put in an overhead locker. Natalie Williamson claims she, her 17-month-old son, Riley, and her now estranged husband were on a Virgin flight from Fiji to Sydney, when the flight attendant picked up Riley, placed him in the locker and closed the latch. Virgin has admitted an incident did take place, but claims Ms Williamson’s husband was playing a peek-a-boo game with Riley involving the overhead compartment when the flight attendant joined in.

Although I’m sure I wouldn’t be too happy either if it was my kid in the overhead locker! Reply TheInfamousJ March 10, 2011 I call bullsh*t on them being “on a flight”. On the plane, maybe, but probably pre-boarding due to having small children and whatnot. But there is no way there were empty overhead bins during an actual flight.
