I have no words right now.

So, a couple abandoned their infant child at an airport in Tel Aviv, Israel. Like, they just up and left the kid.


They didn’t want to get the baby a ticket, and so the infant couldn’t board the plane.

Did that stop the parents from boarding their flight to Brussels, Belgium?

Um, no.

These passengers traveling from Tel Aviv to Brussels (31 Jan) presented at check-in without a booking for their infant. They then proceeded to security leaving the infant behind at check-in.

It’s not like it was a huge deal to get the kid on the plane. It would have cost them the equivalent of about $25 to $27 for the infant to ride as a lap passenger.

BUT, they got all nice and comfortable in their seats on the flight to Brussels, and left the baby sitting at check-in.

I mean, did they think the airline employees were going to babysit the infant until they got back from vacation?

A couple and an infant with Belgian passports arrived for a flight at Terminal 1 without a ticket for the baby. The couple also arrived late for the flight, once the check-in for the flight was closed. The couple left the infant seat with the baby and ran toward the security checks at Terminal 1 in an attempt to reach the boarding gate for the flight.

Of course, the first question I have is HOW DO YOU LEAVE YOUR BABY AT THE AIRPORT?

Now, luckily someone figured out a baby had been left at check-in BEFORE the plane took off.

The check-in agent at Ben Gurion Airport contacted Airport Security, who retrieved these passengers, and this is now a matter for local police.

Apparently, according to CNN, the baby has been reunited with the parents, and everything is hunky dory.

You know, except that the infant has parents that are willing to ditch it to make a flight.

Seriously. Give me the baby. I’ll take care of it without leaving it behind at an airport.
