Loud Autistic Stimming On A Plane


(gasping) – [Asa] Are you guys ready? (cheering)
(mumbling) (laughing) (suitcase dragging) Come on kiddo, you remember? You guys match, how cute. – [Isaiah] They did last time too. – [Asa] Yeah they did,
when we went to New York Summer and Abbie matched then. – We’re to the T today though. – [Asa] Yeah you are. – [Summer] Shoes. – [Asa] Everything, look at you. (laughing) Thumbs up, here you go. Hey you wanna put it in there? She’ll keep your iPad safe, okay? Easy peasy. – [Priscilla] That was so good. – [Asa] Yep, yep, there’s
always one redeeming person. Mrs. Haddock. – She was so impressive. – Yup, she did great. Too bad we can’t film that,
maybe one day we’ll talk to TSA and see if we can get
them to let us do it. So one of the cool things, I don’t know, it kinda seems a little chaotic like they don’t know what they’re doing, but at the same time
it’s so individualized that they pretty much just come up to you and they’re like “Okay
what issues might arise, “what does she need,”
you know what I mean? – So she tried calling, but
we were already checking in. So that way she could get some information on what we should expect. – Right, right, so she just y’know she put us through the fast lane and through the whole thing and walked us through the whole process. – [Priscilla] On the ground Abbie, look. – Yeah look at this. – Walk.
– Moving sidewalk, isn’t this interesting? This is where it gets
weird Abbie, are you ready? (Abbie moans) (laughing) Running start, good job. – [Priscilla] Shameful. – [Asa] Disappointed. – [Announcer] Group number
please board with group seven, and we appreciate you keeping
the boarding lanes clear until your group has been called. (Abbie giggles) (mumbling) (laughing)
– Okay. – [Asa] Look at you. – [Announcer] At this our
concierge key customers are welcome to board now– – [Isaiah] Hey, stand
up, stand up, turn, turn. – [Asa] Rich girl trick. – [Isaiah] Rich girl trick. – [Asa] Oh man, oh man, look at you. How to lose your AirPods 101. – Yup, she’s gonna chuck ’em. (laughing) – You look so cute in them, oh my goodness look at you. – [Asa] You look stressed. – I’m okay. – [Asa] So they normally,
you said they normally, yeah they do normally call for anybody that needs assistance, hang
on I’ll move my coffee. – Families with young children. – Right. – [Announcer] Dallas passenger Hotch, check your podium C tent please. – [Asa] But we’re the last
group to board, but that’s okay. Hopefully with any luck
she’ll make a few noises walking down through the aisles, and then it’s like hey, we’re gonna be in the
back of the plane, FYI. It’s helpful I think. – Yeah.
– Right? Go, yeah you wanna go? Well guess what, we’re really go gonna go. Couple hundred miles an hour. Hurtling through the air. – [Announcer] Welcome to board through the priority lane, thank you. – [Asa] Do you remember this tunnel Ab? – [Attendant] Hi how are you? – [Asa] Hi, this is
Abigail, Abigail has autism, she might make a few noises or whatever but she’s not in distress or
anything, everything’s fine. – [Attendant] That’s okay, no worries. – [Asa] Little sensory
processing disorder, can you say hello, say hello? – [Attendant] How you doing? – [Asa] Good job, let’s go. (mumbling) Why are you so excited? (Abbie vocalizes excitedly) All right, let’s put this under your feet. You ready? (Abbie hums)
(chattering softly) (Abbie yells) (mumbling) (Abbie yells) (Abbie moans) (Abbie yells) (mumbling) Hey, look.
(Abbie moans) Take my hands. (chill music) First flight in the books. (loud muffled announcements sounding) – Actually people
commented how well she did. – Yes, they did. – I thought that was awesome. – Yep. – For them to recognize. – Right, mm-hmm, they could– – She had a few moments where– – She had quite a few.
– She would yell out. – But they were short. – Well honestly people were
startled the first time, but then after that it was fine. – Well you know how she
does her long yelling thing? She didn’t do that at all. Like it was just a few
short little yells going on. (mumbling) (chuckling) Everybody’s comfy. So, we got, how long is our layover? – Our flight– – [Asa] We start boarding at
9:30, something like that? Okay, so hour and a half. That’s a cute blanket Cilla. – Thank you. – [Asa] Plane number two, are you ready? A little more hyped than we were earlier. That could be problematic, we’ll see. At least we’re in a good mood, good mood’s better than bad mood. You got it. – Hey Abigail! (plane noises drown out Priscilla) – She may yell out, she’s not in distress. (plane noises drown out Priscilla) – Okay, which (mumbles)? (plane noises drown out Priscilla) All right, I’ll pass that on. – [Priscilla] Thank you. – Welcome aboard!
– Thank you. – [Greeter] Hello, welcome aboard. – [Asa] Woop, careful. – [Greeter] Welcome aboard. – [Asa] Just like the other one. (clapping) Hard clapping. (mid-beat music) Which one do you want? Do you want juice, orange juice, okay. It looks very different here. It’s weird right? And we went back in time By three hours. – Three hours. – [Asa] It’s crazy, our
day just got longer. Oh lord, Abbie are you ready
to get off of this thing? You’re not you wanna stay? You wanna go for another round? You wanna head back across the country? – Maybe in 10 days. – [Asa] Huh? – Maybe in 10 days. – [Asa] Did you have a good time? You did, did you like the plane? Was it fun? – You were super busy. – [Asa] So busy. It was successful Ab, good job. – [Priscilla] Ab what’s
wrong are you tired? We’re waiting on the luggage, everybody knows how that is. And Miss Abigail’s taking a nap. Do not mess with that bag missy. Suitcases are here! It’s always good when
they don’t lose anything. Success!
– There’s all of our suitcases. (mumbling) – [Priscilla] Here we go, Abbie, can you pick that bag up? Please ma’am, thanks. – [Asa] We got the wagon! Now you guys are gonna take the van, and Priscilla and I
are gonna ride in that. Sound good?
– Okay. – [Asa] We got a dodge caravan, a little Deja vu huh? Damn Priscilla! – Back at it again with the mini van. (laughing) – Same old same old, here we are. – [Asa] Yeah, were we go. Oh my gosh you know what? – It’s like we never left. – [Asa] There’s way less compartments. – [Priscilla] That sucks! – [Summer] I really want this compartment. – [Asa] Where you gonna
put your Chick-fil-A sauce? – I don’t know.
(laughing) – Oh we are officially in LA. Like we are free. – [Priscilla] I need
my paper, just in case. – We are free from public transportation, which is fantastic. (cheering)
(upbeat music) We flew all this way just
for an In-N-Out-Burger! (laughing) Oh my goodness! (cheering) Yay, In-N-Out-Burger! – Abbie we’re gonna eat
and get back on the plane. – (laughs) Yes this is the
only reason we’re here. – So none of us have ever
been to In-N-Out Burger so we decided this is the first thing that we had to do on our trip. – Yeah.
– Yup. LA, LA we’re in LA oh my gosh! It’s dirty here, it’s not that clean. – The breeze is nice though
it’s not that hot out. – It’s not hot at all, that’s awesome. It’s amazing, it’s way
hotter in Jacksonville. The flight was a challenge. It was a challenge, it was
just really long flight and Abigail was over it. – She was just busy. – So busy, and was very
active she wanted to, okay I mean she was a
little more than busy. Like we spent five hours
with her blocking her from petting the guy, Priscilla and I blocking her from petting the guy in front of us. Petting, she wanted to pet his head, so. – But you know what, it wasn’t terrible. – No it was not. You know what made it not terrible? Everybody around us was
super understanding, and they talked to us about Abbie. – The flights crew–
– And the flight attendants– – Was amazing.
– And the crew, yeah. – I don’t know, I think it went amazing. – It went so well, so well, but it was a very active,
very busy event for sure. – What I think part of it is, we’re tired. I think that’s part of it. – Exhausted, so tired. Yep, time to eat. (chattering) This is madness. Everybody’s so nice, too. – I know, and they are
like, they know their job. – [Asa] Yes they do. (laughing) Here Ab this is yours. (laughing) – Holy crap!
– Asa forgot to ask for no tomatoes– – [Asa] That’s all right,
we’ll just pull ’em off. – [Priscilla] Because he
was a little nervous, so. – [Asa] Yeah, it was so busy in there. Okay Ab’s getting the first bite. – [Isaiah] Oh yeah. – [Asa] Okay what’s your review of In-N-Out Burger, how was it? – [Isaiah] Was it good? – [Asa] Is it good Ab, yeah. (plane flying loudly) – We were like right there. Like we don’t want any mishaps. – Airbnb house tour! Heyo, nice huh? – Ooh!
– Yeah, I like it. (Abbie yells)
(Abbie claps) – [Asa] Right. Is it good and echoey? Nice little deck area. (Abbie hums) – [Isaiah] That’s cool. – [Asa] Trip B episode. – [Isaiah] We have fancy
lights that do this. (chuckling) – [Asa] The pool with a diving board. Isaiah’s gonna get hurt. – [Isaiah] What? – [Asa] I said you’ll probably get hurt. – Are you saying that
’cause I’m not graceful? – [Asa] Dude y’know, yeah. – [Priscilla] So, this is our room. And this is nobody’s room. – [Asa] Nobody’s room. Wow, they got a fancy bathroom. – [Isaiah] This might be the Maass room. – [Asa] It might be the Maass room. (laughing) The girls. – [Priscilla] Maybe the girls in here. – [Asa] Or the girls. – [Priscilla] Girls. – It’s really sweet.
– Then Isaiah and gramps. – Yup, gramps is riding his motorcycle down from Washington State to hang out with us
for a day or two right? So this is where we’ll be
staying for the next 10 days. Front door’s wide open. – House is already paying for itself, I found a quarter in the night stand. – [Asa] Winning. Cheaper and better than
a hotel room for 10 days. (splashes) That was sick bro! – I’ve never dove off
a diving board before, I’m gonna do bad. – [Asa] Yay Abbie! – [Priscilla] Now! – [Isaiah] There it is. – [Asa] Send it! (splashes) (laughing) – [Priscilla] Oh brother, look at she’s. (laughing) – [Asa] Why don’t you
just stick to the fronts? – [Isaiah] Yeah let me do the fronts. – [Asa] You slapped your knees dude. Like your knees were the only part of your body that sent it. (splashes) (splashes) So, what do you think? – I love it. – [Asa] Nice right? – I am so tired. – Yeah. Okay so the Weezners don’t get here ’til like one a.m. some time around then, so you guys will see them tomorrow. We’re gonna hang out, we’re
gonna order some food, hang out in the pool, we
will see you guys tomorrow. VidCon tomorrow?
– Yup. – VidCon tomorrow, bye.
(beeps) (chattering) Tik Tokers, they’re always so extra. – You guys Tik Tokers? – [Asa] No, you are. So why are Tik Tokers always so extra? (laughing)

  1. Isa:where are you going to put your chick-fil-a sauce?
    Isai and summer: I don't knowwww
    Ahh just like siblings πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  2. Hey just curioused on how she had reacted when the plane sounded like there was a dog barking. This is because you guys are on an Airbus A320 and after they are starting engine 1 on the aircraft, the dog barking noise kicks in for a few seconds. What makes the noise on the plane is called the PTU (Power Transfer Unit). This is basically a hydraulic driven pump that gets energy from one hydraulic system and uses it to pressurize another hydraulic system. After hearing that noise for a few seconds during pushback after the first engine started up, engine 2 begins to start as well. Sometimes the PTU kicks in while you are taxing to the gate because they have the plane running on one engine. I believe it stops after you taxied to the gate when they shutdown the engines. So these strange noises you hear during pushback is the PTU.

  3. Abbie and her brother playing is so sweet also if people can't stand having some noise on a plane they should bring their own ear defenders

  4. I'm a new person to this channel, so I dont know much, but I have been curious on what that back thing that is on her backpack in this video. If anyone could let me know I would very appreciate it.

  5. All the way from the netherlands i want to express my respect to you all. The way you take care of your daughter is fantastic. I have been working in disabled care for 20 years and it melts my heart when I see you with abigial. Many people can take an example of this !!!! The peace and respect that you radiate is admirable. I will continue to follow you !!!!

  6. You guys honestly inspire me so much. I have a brother with autism and I always worry what he will do when we’re in public. I used to say to my parents β€œwatch out hold his hand” etc but I realize that my brothers capable of being on his own, and that I should start to let go more, so thank you ❀️

  7. The Air BnB is a great idea! Ten days in a hotel is difficult for anyone, and this way it’s a comfortable, cozy, and way more functional place to stay!

  8. I just love Abby she has such a magical smile and she did amazing. You are such an amazing and supportive family πŸ™‚ This was BIG for her "WAY TO GO ABBY!"

  9. Dont forget to ask for a straw..

    😁😁

  10. Summer I just want to say you’re an amazing young lady!! Your parents must beam with pride.

    Long flights are no fun! I’ve flown from Texas to buffalo international in New York… and this was back before WiFi was really a thing. πŸ˜‚

  11. I am so glad that everyone was so understanding of abbigal on the plane ride, that's exactly how people should be around her.

  12. I’ve watch every video, every single one. I love every single one, I’ve been on the roller coaster of emotions with you even though I’m not there. But it hit me extra hard seeing Abbie have the mini start to a break down and then her face with light music on the first plane.. it got me.. I realized the simple things we go through aren’t so simple to some. Thank you for sharing your adventure one day at a time.

  13. I was having a very hard day, emotionally. Terminal illness is so difficult even on your best days. I've sat here for a half hour watching extremely beautiful smiles and 3 amazing girls….Braylee, Abbey and Summer and the happiness jumping right out of their eyes has me smiling like you wouldn't believe. Thank you so much Asa, Priscilla and the Wee Family for showimg so much love to all of us.. sometimes all it takes is that smile to help you through a day! 🧑🧑🧑

  14. been absolutely binge watching you guys. so cool to watch how meaningful all your relationships are and abbys ongoing progress and rewarding victories. sending so much love and support!

  15. Abbie coped way better than i ever can on a plane and to have to go on a 2nd plane super inspired to get over it and take my son further than our usual holiday from england to spain πŸ˜‚ my son literally said to me the other week 'get over it already i would really like to go America'

  16. That was an amazing flight for Abbie! You are one amazing family! So wonderful. Summer you're the best friend Abbie could ever ask for! Hope you have a great time! πŸ‘πŸ˜Šβ€

  17. That looks like the same dodge except color that me and my family rented to go to florida this past week. We passed Jacksonville and I immediately thought of you guys.

  18. I love how Abby has an app where she can choose what she wants I wish it was like that for all of us but oh well love you abby

  23. Oh my goodness! My family and I were in LA July 10-18th, and the first thing we did was go to In N Out Burgerβ€”probably that same one you have in the video. πŸ€—πŸ₯°πŸ˜ŽπŸ€©That would’ve been amazing to see you guys!! πŸ™ƒπŸ˜œ We went to Santa Monica Pier and beach, too. So happy Abbie did so well on the second flight. πŸ’–πŸ’œ

  24. A recommendation is to all wear matching shirts maybe custom something no one has it then if you lose Abbie you can say to staff she is wearing this shirt

  25. Gosh that would be so frustrating and annoying to hear and deal with. Well done for the effort you put in! ❀️

  26. what a lovely little girl and family – positive vibes! I have a sister with aspergers and she could get a bit over stimulated when we were kids travelling but the more positive experiences they have can set them up to be able to independent it when they get older! My sister is 30 now and she goes travelling with tour groups every year, she absolutely loves it

  27. Abbie said, β€œSound like a lot of BROKE in here” with those airpods on πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ im a superfan.

  28. I know she is autistic but why do you put it on YouTube that everybody could see what she does

  29. It's nice to see them people are understanding being with people with disabilities someone that has one I just want to say thanks for understanding the situation

  30. I my family went to California, the first thing we did too was get In And Out Burger. Love your family. ❀️ PS I live in Washington state too.

  31. I came across your page after hearing conversation on the plane ride to California. My family and I sat in front of Abbie and I have to say she did amazing on the airplane.

And just love and I mean LOVE, how patient you guys are with Abbie and her needs! It is truly inspiring to know that there are people out there like you, who spread love, awareness, and POSITIVITY, no matter how tough life can be. Keep on keeping on Maas family! Just showing some love! HI ABBIE, STAY SASSY!!!!!
