Taiwan-based China Airlines (CAL) will demand compensation from a woman
who gave birth on a Los Angeles-bound flight earlier this month, forcing it to make an unscheduled stop in Anchorage, Alaska, the country’s minister of transportation and communications Chen Jian-yu said Monday.
Chen made the remarks during a legislative hearing in the wake of media reports that the woman had concealed the fact that she was already 36 weeks pregnant and intentionally took the flight late in her pregnancy for the purpose of giving birth in US territory.
Ruling Kuomintang legislator Lo Shu-lei condemned the woman for neglecting her own safety, that of her baby and other passengers to get a US passport for her child. [FULL STORY]
