Unfortunately, without having been there none of us is really qualified to comment one way or the other.
There was a woman in my "mommy" group down south that would purposely pull out her breast in public to breast feed with the alterier motive of getting someone's attention. She fed off of the attention. She absolutely loved it when someone would ask her to leave or cover up. She would then go on a tirade about how it was her right to do that in public. We were standing in Gymboree one time at the mall and she just whipped her breast out right there for everyone to see without using a bit of discretion. Now the food court was only steps away from the Gyboree door, but she chose to expose herself right there knowing the possibility existed that someone might get upset.
Maybe it's just me, but I do have a hard time believing that the woman in question was breastfeeding next to her husband fairly isolated, and they came along and kicked her off for refusing to use an airline blanket to cover up. Especially when every mother knows that on a flight with an infant, you would have baby blankets handy that could very well have been used to cover up. I really think that someone was looking for the media attention. That of course is speculation on my part though.
