United Airlines is apologizing for giving a 2-year-old boyís seat away to a standby passenger.

Pictures show the boy sitting in his motherís lap on a United flight from Houston to Boston last week.

The mother was forced to hold her son for the three-and-a-half-hour flight.

Shirley Yamauchi says she bought a ticket for her 2-year-old son months ago.

Unitedís website says once infants turn 2-years-old they are required to have a purchased ticket and occupy a seat.

But Yamauchi says a standby passenger came on board and told her that her son was in his seat.

When she complained to a flight attendant, she says the woman shrugged and said the flight was full

As small as those seats are, that's borderline child abuse. Anyone who had any common sense would know better
