I traveled by myself with a 2 yo and 6 yo. On the flight from Dallas to Fort Wayne, the attendant Chris, an older pale, wrinkled lady was rude and completely inexperienced. My 2 yo was giving me a hard time getting in her seatbelt and instead of understanding, Chris lacked empathy and was simply rude. I had 3 seats but they were separated by an aisle and I told her I am working on it and she was simply mean. Then later, after my 2 yo got into her belt, and the plan started taxiing, my daughter was trying to sit up out of her belt and I was reaching across the aisle to get her back in (I tried sitting everywhere but it wasn't working). Then the attendant comes over and hears me and I tell my daughter that the 'mean lady' is coming and to get in her seat. When my daughter didn't, I went to unbuckle and get up to sit her down and Chris shouted at me and said 'No, you stay there'. Then Chris said, why I called her a mean lady as if that mattered at this point (she really was an old cranky woman who clearly needs to be retired). She told my daughter who is 2 yo, to 'sit down' but my daughter ignored her. So I asked Chris, 'Either I place her in her belt or you do'. Then Chris incredulously says 'I am going to call the Captain and tell him to stop the plane' - I was shocked. Clearly Chris has no experience with kids and must be a lonely old lady without friends or family. However, she seemed to be nice to everyone else on the plane - but they were all mostly pale people without any colour...so maybe she had a problem with my brown skin tone or bronze smooth colour. She was outrightly and inappropriately rude. I never bothered to tell her who I was and what I do for a living - there was no reason to tell her that because she had already judged me based on the colour of my skin - that was obvious - racism is a deep seated core that even education cannot extricate, even if she knew what I did for a living. She even had this grimacing snarl as if trying to intimidate me - it was so weird. Then Chris huffed off but thankfully John came back to save the day - John was the other attendant who deserves a Bonus for his swift and empathetic actions - he was so understanding and helped me solve the problem - he let me get up quickly and place her in my lap and belt her beside me by moving a passenger to save the day. Simple. Such an easy solution that Chris aggravated and dealt with in such an obtrusive manner it was ridiculous. I was appalled. Chris needs to be retired, period. She is an old racist woman that has no sense of human decency or sense of children. My kids are hyperintelligent but need guidance with some things - does that mean that Chris has the right to act the way she did - Chris is an attendant in a billion dollar airline and represents that very airline. I only chose AA for the convenience of the flight time - I knew I should have booked on Virgin America instead and arrived and left at an earlier time. It leaves a bad taste in my mouth for ever flying AA again such that I just decided after Chris's mean behaviour to get a Virgin America credit card instead of using my AA credit card for all travel. Chris is a spoiled rotten apple that needs to be retired or else that type of culture will pervade your airline. Recommendation: Give Chris early retirement and get her out before she ruins AA reputation. Racism and meanness is not acceptable in any society. I actually feel sorry for Chris - a pale old wrinkled obese lady with a heart of grime. That may sound like a terrible thing to say but that is how she makes me feel. Now translate that into how I feel about the airline. The only saving grace was John and the attendants on the SJC-DFW connection. Chris was the attendant on the DFW-FWA route.
