The episode unfolded five days after a woman was nearly kicked off a JetBlue flight after her 3-year-old daughter urinated in her seat because the flight crew wouldn't let her use the bathroom while the plane was on the tarmac in New York, according to an account the mother gave Boston's WBZ-TV.

The woman, Jennifer Deveraux, said that when she got up to clean the mess, a flight attendant reported her to the pilot, who announced that the Boston-bound plane was returning to the gate to bring an out-of-order passenger to security officials. She said she ultimately was allowed to stay aboard.

JetBlue later apologized, she said; the airline said employees would undergo sensitivity training, the station reported.

It has been a busy few days for airplane mishaps. A Florida-to-Connecticut JetBlue flight was diverted to Kennedy on Sunday after a mechanical warning light went on, and an Allegiant Air flight Friday from Las Vegas to Missoula, Montana, landed in West Wendover, Nevada, because of a hydraulic system warning light. Both planes landed safely, with no injuries.

A Delta Air Lines ramp worker was injured Friday evening responding to an engine fire in a plane parked at New York's LaGuardia Airport after all its passengers had disembarked; the airline said the worker was doing well.
