Mother Settles JetBlue Lawsuit Over Son Flown to Wrong City

A New York City woman has agreed to settle her lawsuit against JetBlue Airways for mixing up her 5-year-old son with another boy and flying him to the wrong city.

Maribel Martinez's lawyer announced the settlement on Tuesday, saying the matter was resolved amicably. The New York-based airline declined to comment. No other details were released.

Martinez had gone to New York's Kennedy Airport to meet the flight her son, Andy, was supposed to be on but was presented with the other boy instead.

Both boys had flown out of the Dominican Republic. Andy had been put on a flight to Boston instead of New York, and the other boy had been put on the flight to New York instead of the Boston-bound flight he was supposed to be on.
