I saw this story on the news yesterday. I feel sad for him that he missed this trip with his friends, one they had been planning for awhile. The Boston Marathon bombing was in the news, so he was already worried about saying the word "bomb". This stressed him out even more and caused him to repeatedlyy say "bomb". Even after getting through security with documentation of his disorder, the pilot kicked him off the plane. JetBlue did offer him a free round trip, but with no guarentees that he'll be able to fly. From what I gathered, he's unsure if he'll ever try to fly again :(
While I can understand the pilot's concern, I think if they would have just let him on the plane and relax he would have de-stressed enough so it wouldn't be an issue. I also think the other passengers would have understood if they knew the whole story, what do you think?
