Braysen Gabriel is a 4-year-old boy who normally loves to fly. But on a recent flight from San Diego to Houston he was having a little trouble. Braysen has autism which can lead to him become overwhelmed and have emotional meltdowns in certain situations.
Braysen’s mother Lori Gabriel told CNN that the situation was becoming difficult and it looked like it would even delay takeoff, saying:

“It was impossible to restrain him. He was fighting both me and his father. It took the both of us to try to get him back to his chair and get his seat belt back on. He started kicking, screaming and hitting.”

That’s when the United Airlines cabin crew stepped in like pros.

Gabriel expressed her gratitude to the flight attendants on Facebook, thanking them for their kindness and patience and explaining what exactly happened.

“So my little flyer (he’s autistic but normally loves to fly) didn’t have such a good flight home. Trying to get him to stay seated was impossible he wanted to sit on the floor in the hall and in first class.”

According to Gabriel the cabin crew was very accommodating to her son when he began to have an emotional meltdown, first bending the rules to allow him to sit on her lap during takeoff then allowing him the freedom to roam the cabin.

When Braysen went up to first class, the cabin crew didn’t force him to go back to his seat. Instead they let him camp out on the floor with a blanket.

This seemed to work because, as Gabriel told CNN:  “When he’s overstimulated, the vibration makes him feel better.”

According to Gabriel, her fellow passengers were equally patient and kind, including a man in first class whose chair Braysen was kicking and who laughed it off and gave the boy high fives instead of getting annoyed.

After the plane landed the flight attendants gave Gabriel a note that read in part: “I commend you for your strength. Do not EVER let anyone make you feel as though you are an inconvenience or a burden. He is a blessing.”

Gabriel had nothing but kind words for the cabin crew and passengers who turned what could have been a very taxing flight for everyone involved into a great example of people coming together to understand each other a little better.

***Please share****So my little flyer (he’s autistic but normally loves to fly) didn’t have such a good flight home. …
