Cameron Burke, his wife Minta, and their two young children were travelling from New Jersey to Las Vegas to celebrate Minta's 40 trip around the sun, carrying with them a special treat from well-loved NY bakery Tonnie's Minis.

"A flight attendant nicely asked me to remove the cake from that (overhead) compartment, so I moved it to another one", Burke told the newspaper. That's when the Burkes were removed. "You know, you could see the gestures - then she was pointing to her, 'did you tell him he couldn't put anything in the overhead compartment?' I had approached them, and I said everything was fine, and she said, 'sir, this does not involve you".

"She then asked me to move it to underneath the seat in front of me, I did". Then a second staffer got involved, apparently arguing with the first, and dad Cameron Burke says he stepped in. Burke refused and, along with others, began filming.

National Basketball Association admits Celtics lost time on final possession
Beal, who started the game 0-7 from three-point range knocked down his first of the game late in the fourth to cut into the lead. While that series probably needed to go seven games, this one between budding rivals in the Celtics and Wizards absolutely did.

The airline had all passengers deplane in order to get the family off, where they were told they could not get on the flight and given a refund.

Minta Burke's husband planned a surprise trip to Vegas for the parents and their two young boys, to celebrate the mother's 40th birthday. "They're confused, not knowing what's going on, they were traumatized", says Minta Burke.

The family's account is the latest in a string of high-profile, airline-related incidents captured on video.

The Burkes had boarded a Jet Blue flight out of Kennedy Airport and stored their buttercream cake in the overhead bin before taking their seats in the last row.

The Burke family, speaking to WABC News, denies the airline's claim that they refused to comply and used vulgar language.

"I want the flight attendant fired, she has no business serving the public", he said. "When she told me I had been non-compliant, then I said 'ma'am, had you been drinking?' because her behavior was not normal", Cameron told ABC 7 NY. A flight attendant told him he had to remove it, which he claims he did. However, it is disputing the passengers' account, saying their removal was justified because their "behavior demonstrated a risk for additional escalation in air". His kids are clearly upset in the video and the officer they interacted with tried to calm the uncomfortable situation.

"No one did anything wrong", an officer said on the video. Turns out that was a bad idea, according to JetBlue. "The remaining customers re-boarded and the flight departed without further interruption", the airline's statement continued. Burke intends to sue JetBlue. "I thought highly of JetBlue before".
