Breastfeeding mother settles suit with airlines

New Mexico woman was kicked off a Delta flight for nursing her daughter

A woman who was ordered off a 2006 flight for refusing to cover herself while breastfeeding has settled a suit against Delta Airlines and two other carriers.

According to Emily Gillette, she was breastfeeding her daughter near the rear of a Delta Connections plane headed from Vermont to New York when a flight attendant approached her with an airline blanket and asked her to cover herself.  After complaining about the flight attendant’s behavior, Gillette was led off the plane by a customer service representative.
