German Barrero, from far left, takes hold of his son, Alessandro, 15, who is autistic, while departing the plane during Jet Blue, Pacific Child and Family and TSA's "Wings for Autism" program, which took place at Bob Hope Airport in Burbank on Saturday, May 4, 2013. JetBlue Airways began "Wings for Autism" in Boston for the last three years and brought the program to California for the first time. Families with autistic children are often fearful of traveling due to the stress that parents may go through. Anxiety, long lines, loud noises and unfamiliarity may affect autistic children. About one in 88 children are autistic.
