Don't fly the United Airlines
A United Airlines pilot asked a Muslim family of five to leave a plane before it took off, citing "safety" issues. I am shocked to learn the news. After all, I am a frequent flyer who has flown in that airline a few times.
Such a behavior for an air carrier is simply unacceptable. I may not be flying in the airlines any time in the future unless I find out that the airline has apologized for its bigotry.
“We are tired of Muslim-looking passengers being removed from flights for the flimsiest reasons, under a cryptic claim of ‘security’,” said CAIR-Chicago Executive Director Ahmed Rehab said in a statement. “Security means passengers, not harassing and humiliating them and booting them off their flight for, of all things, actually asking for security.”
