    Yikes! I'm sure the airline will pursue at least some of the cost of the slide replacement in addition to the gov't fine. And how ridiculous a pain in the butt that must have been for all the other passengers on board. I'd rather deal with a screaming baby than have to de-plane and wait for another flight.

    Hmm, I wonder which airline lets a small child sit in an emergency exit row?

    I am not so sure they were actually sitting in it.Note that nowhere in the article does it actually say that.

    The article is horribly written, it actually appears that they were exiting the plane anyway, the lady just wanted to get out earlier and happened to be next to an exit row.
