Mother Says Airplane Rows Too Narrow For Child Seats

WASHINGTON (AP) - Federal aviation safety officials urge parents to put their children in child seats, but a California mother says that twice in the last month she has been thwarted by airlines when she tried to do the right thing.

Melissa Bradley says she was forced off a United Airlines flight at San Francisco International Airport on Wednesday in a dispute over an economy-class row too narrow to accommodate an infant carrier for her 1-year-old daughter.

Bradley was involved in a similar incident two days before Christmas on a Skywest flight from Aspen, Colo., to San Francisco, although she wasn't asked to leave the plane in that instance.

A United spokesman says Bradley and her traveling party were removed from Flight 75 to Honolulu on Wednesday because she was causing a disruption by taking pictures.

She denies that she was disruptive.
