U.S. fines Delta $50,000 for ordering three Muslim passengers off planes
Delta Air Lines is being fined $50,000 for ordering three Muslim passengers off planes after the airline's own security officials cleared them to fly.The days of passengers bringing rabbits, turtles and birds on airplanes as support animals could be ending. Trained dogs get the seal of approval. Advertisement At the captain’s request, a Delta supervisor and security officer interviewed the couple outside the plane. Delta’s corporate security office reported that the couple were U.S. citizens returning home to Cincinnati and “raised no red flags,” and they were cleared to fly, according to the consent order. But the captain refused to let them re-board the plane; they flew home the next day. The Department of Transportation said it appears that the couple would have been allowed to fly but for their “perceived religion.” The couple was not named in the consent order, but their representatives identified them as Faisal and Nazia Ali of the Cincinnati area. The other case in the consent order occurred five days later in Amsterdam. Flight attendants and passengers complained about a Muslim passenger, but the copilot saw nothing unusual about the man, and Delta’s security office said his record raised no concern. Advertisement The captain prepared to begin the New York-bound flight, then returned to the gate and had the man and his bags removed and the area around his seat searched. The man was not subjected to additional screening before boarding a later flight, which the Transportation Department said showed that his removal from the first flight was discriminatory. The Council on American-Islamic Relations, which represented the Alis, questioned the size of the penalty against Delta. Delta earned nearly $4.8 billion last year, and for a company that profitable, “$50,000 is basically a slap on the wrist,” said Karen Dabdoub, executive director of CAIR’s Cincinnati chapter. “But it’s a good sign that DOT is taking this seriously,” she added. “I’m glad to see that Delta received some sort of a sanction.” Read more: Los Angeles Times
So prices just went up. Thanks Losing $50K is better than losing a plane full of people. The retired air safety inspector-passenger didn't see a Muslim, she so a believer in paradise after death. Please start kicking Catholics off of planes with young boys on them. Slow 👏 for this kind of justice. So what this means is that in future if there is a genuine threat to an airline and the passengers, the crew will not take any action.
RashidZSZ That’s all it was fined!? Why only $50K? Sorry - I’m also leery of a person who follows a book that says, “Kill the idolaters wherever you find them, and capture them, and blockade them, and watch for them at every lookout...' (Quran 9:5). I am to love and pray for them, but, boy they are deceived!
not enough 👎🏼 That’s it?

Delta has a new upscale, high-tech pet carrier available. Cost? $850As the feds crack down on emotional support animals, Delta Air Lines is introducing an upscale alternative for four-legged travelers: a pet carrier with GPS tracking, built-in water bowl and triple-locking door. Delta is there a larger carrier in the works? They ain’t putting my ESA in that cage. Crockett is the best ESA... ok, he occasionally has a little gas. Emotional support animals are just pets, not service animals. It’s time we stop treating them as such.
