At 36 weeks pregnant, passenger Cristina Penton became anxious when she began to feel unwell on flight 971 from Fort Lauderdale to Dallas/Fort Worth, Spirit said in a statement yesterday. "But our flight attendants are trained to handle medical emergencies in flight and they have access to doctors on the ground via inflight communication". A pediatrician and a nurse on board helped the flight attendants with the delivery. "Soon after that, it was clear I was having my baby, and I was in pure panic".
When Penton notified flight attendants that she wasn't feeling well, attendants went into action and notified doctors on the ground to see if any medical professional were on board.
On Tuesday, Spirit Airlines gave the family gifts for the baby, plus a special present: free flights for Christopher and a guest to anywhere Spirit flies on or near his birthday for the next 21 years. "We were just all along for the ride!" "He is absolutely ideal", Penton said.
Penton gave birth Saturday night on a Spirit Airlines flight that took a detour to New Orleans when she went into labor.
