No, that's not the only logical one. It may be that she is from a large close-knit family,where people take turns caring for the children, and she lost track of who is watching the kids. Amid all the other chaos that goes with international travel, which is not exactly a daily routine habitually following the same dots.'

Remember also, she lives in a country where it is perfectly safe to leave a child unattended, knowing that society will watch over a child an see that no harm comes to him. .

I had to think about this. Maybe the explosives were hidden in the baby.

I'm always leaving my baby somewhere. Gas station, beauty parlor, tanning salon, the colonoscopy suite, in the middle of the intersection of Shea and Scottsdale Rd... You guys have NO IDEA how easy they are to forget.
Maybe if women get off the phone they could focus on the important things like their child.

This is strange. But hats off to the pilot for heading back.

She’s also in a culture and socio-economic level where it’s common to have daytime household help so probably a part of her newborn-stressed brain was also defaulting to assuming the baby was safe with the Kenyan or Indian nanny

Me too. I am still trying to remember where I left my entire family about 20 years ago !

Hard for me to understand.

I knew someone could steal them in a heartbeat when out in public so my eye was never off them.

I'm gonna bet the flight arrived on time. Pilots have leeway in the flight schedule, and can easily make up the time if there is a delay. I've been on flights that arrived 10-20 minutes early. That's a 9 hour flight, they don't schedule them for the absolute quickest they can get there.

You seriously HAVE to be kidding, flight time from Jeddah to K.L. is 8hrs 45 mins.
Are you going to tell me that maybe 30 minutes after take off, the pilot requested permission to return to Jeddah, was given that permission, then turned around, landed, taxied to the gate, the woman got off and collected her child, and returned to her seat, then the plane waited for a new take off slot.
Then after all that screwing around, it gets to K.L. by its original scheduled arrival time, gimme a break.
