A family’s holiday trip turned into a disaster after a 14-year-old redheaded Scottish girl was told she wasn’t fit too fly because of her pale complexion.
Grace Wain was denied to fly on board to Maldives by an Etihad staff at the Manchester airport without obtaining a written confirmation from a doctor. The check-in staff insisted that the teenage girl was “too pale” to board the flight even after an airport paramedic declared she was all-clear to fly.
“I told them, ‘We live in Scotland. She is a redhead and she has a pale complexion. That’s just the way she is,” says Paul, Grace’s 45-year-old father.
Moreover, Paul explained that his daughter was feeling “tired, hot and bothered” at that time.
Luckily, her mother Sheena’s twin sister Jean Jowers was able to get a letter from their family doctor. The letter was immediately emailed to Etihad’s duty manager just in time to resolve the problem.
For Paul and Sheena, what happened with Grace was connected to the flight being overbooked.
Yet the family’s dream holiday in Maldives experienced another blow as two of their suitcases went missing. As a result, Paul and Sheena wore only their travelling clothes for three days at their Indian Ocean resort. This incident caused the family more distress as the only shop in Atmosphere Kanifushi resort only sold souvenirs.
In a statement, the airline said: “The team called for a medic who examined the child and requested a ‘fit to fly’ letter from a doctor, allowing the family to board. Our team on the ground continued to provide support ahead of the flight. Unfortunately, when the family arrived, some of their baggage was missing. The airline apologised and took all measures to find and deliver the baggage to the Wain family as soon as possible. Compensation in line with standard guidelines will be provided.”

Shocked Mother Discovers Hidden Bathroom Camera in Starbucks
A young boy, while using the restroom with his mother, noticed a hidden camera under a sink in Starbucks.
A woman recently took her 5-year-old son with her as she visited a Starbucks branch in Lancaster, California. Later, they went to the coffee shop's bathroom and took turns. “My son used the restroom first and I used the restroom after him,” said the mother who chose to remain anonymous.
While she was using the toilet, the mother began to notice her boy intently looking at something. “I noticed he was staring at the sink a little bit perplexed. I asked him what was wrong.”
His response shocked her: “Mommy, why is there a phone under there?” as he pointed to a little device hidden under the sink.
Puppy Born with Two Legs and Other Defects Sparks Debate on Whether He Should Be Put Down or Not
Should Bonsai be saved?
Born with two legs and various congenital defects, Bonsai the English Bulldog puppy never had it easy since day one.
Although his two stunted lame hind legs had been amputated, other operations still await Bonsai as he has a short crooked spine, a dysfunctional pelvis, splayed front legs, and sacs of fluid inside his body. Since his front legs exhibit “Swimmer Puppy” syndrome, Bonsai is unable to stand on his front legs properly.
As a result, his internal organs experience extra pressure. It is believed that the large internal sacs of fluid inside his body may have caused it.
