As every new mother knows, flying with a baby is a daunting task.
Between the tantrums, being together in a confined space for hours, and the other people in close proximity to you, it’s enough to make many parents opt out of air travel altogether.
This is perhaps why the high-profile US fashion blogger, Arielle Noa Charnas, decided to take her nine-month-old baby girl, Ruby, into First Class when she flew on a six-hour flight from New York to Los Angeles.
But she said she was then asked to leave the two First Class seats she paid for by a flight attendant.
DailyMail.com has reached out to Delta for comment.

‘On our way to LA a few days ago it was my first time flying with Ruby, I had a screaming crying sleepy baby who was so overwhelmed that she couldn’t fall asleep,’ the New York-based mother began a lengthy post on Instagram.
‘My husband and I paid for first class so that we’d have the extra space and could lay down with her – once we were boarded I was getting tons of eye rolls and head shakes from fellow passengers on @delta because my baby was crying (as if I could just look at Ruby and say okay now it’s time to stop,’ Ms Charnas continued.
Arielle was travelling with her husband Brandon, the founder and CEO of Warwick Capital Management, a commercial real estate firm.
The couple were married in Miami in 2014.
The blogger then went on to say that while she tried to ignore it for about 10 minutes, a flight attendant soon came over to her and ‘asked me and my baby to move to the back of the plane (as if the people in the back didn’t matter).
‘Give up our seats that we paid for and move,’ she said – outraged.
