Sanford Rubenstein, the lawyer representing the mother of a 5-year-old child who was accidentally placed aboard the wrong JetBlue flight on August 17, recently claimed that the airline offered to give the mother a “gift” of $10,000 after the incident became public knowledge. Rubenstein claims that Maribel Martinez answered a phone call from JetBlue corporate headquarters shortly after September 1, and that the caller used a translator and claimed to represent the airline.

Rubenstein reports that he has sent a letter to Joanne Geraghty, the airline’s general counsel, demanding that the airline communicate directly through him rather than attempt to call Martinez with any potential offers.
