An American woman says she was nearly kicked off a flight after her 3-year-old urinated in her seat.

Jennifer Deveraux told WBZ-TV that the incident happened on JetBlue Flight 518 from New York to Boston.

Deveraux says the plane was delayed on the tarmac when her daughter, Summers, asked to use the toilet.

But Deveraux says the flight attendant said, "No, sit down," and Summers urinated in her seat.

Deveraux says she got up to clean the mess and the attendant yelled at her again.

Deveraux says the pilot announced that a noncompliant passenger was being taken to security. But Deveraux was allowed to stay onboard.

She says JetBlue apologised to her, offered her a full credit and US$5000 (NZ$5769) to the charity of her choice.
