I mentioned this before in one of your posts I think… lol

I don’t remember seeing it anywhere :/

Whoops, sorry. Probably didn’t notice it because I always run out of likes and bookmarks :-)

Wow…I knew it was bound to happen.

@13yearoldpilot Wow you knew…? 😂

I saw this a few weeks ago. I’m sorry, but why would someone name their child after an airline? I know that the crew did a good job in helping to deliver the baby, but why not just name your child something personal that has meaning? Just my opinion.

I didn’t know, but I figured a baby would be born on a commercial flight.

They named the baby after the doctor’s first name and the airline

I think that clashes with the naming style of people

The first name is always that of the father’s, probably the doctor happened to have a same surname?

If the mother decided to deviate from the naming style, then it’s 100% out of the world!

Hmm… It’s actually quite rare seeing how airlines have restrictions on expectant women…

This happened on a Southwest Airlines flight, too.

My dad was on a PeopleExpress (defunct 80’s airline) 727, and the same thing happened. Shame that he wasn’t an OB/GYN yet.

What’s an OB? I’m guessing that GYN means Gynecologist

Yes.

An Obstetrician. They deliver babies. My dad has done it over 5,000 times.

Really ?!?! Wow
