What happens in Vegas ... can’t happen if you’re stuck in Jersey.
JetBlue airlines blew out the candles on a Garden State family’s plans for a Sin City birthday bash by booting them off a Nevada-bound flight — over a buttercream cake, the Daily News has learned.
Cameron Burke, his wife and their two kids were flying on May 3 from Kennedy Airport to Sin City, with plans to meet family there for his spouse Minta’s 40th birthday party.
The cake from the renowned Tonnie’s Minis bakery was included as part of their carry-on luggage — and placed in an overhead bin aboard the plane when the family took their seats in the last row.
“A flight attendant nicely asked me to remove the cake from that compartment, so I moved it to another one,” said Cameron, a speech pathologist from Jersey City.
“She then asked me to move it to underneath the seat in front of me, I did.”Story & Passenger Video
