Flying While Muslim: Comair Throws Muslim Family Off Flight As Possible Threat

A Muslim family flying from Memphis to Toronto was thrown off a Comair flight because a flight attendant was concerned over safety. The family was dressed in traditional Muslim clothing.

The flight attendant became suspicious when the father spent an extended period of time in the bathroom before take off and then she discovered the toilet was broken. She alerted the authorities on that basis and the plane was called back from the runway and the family ejected.

Scott Brockman, Memphis International Airport’s Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer explained “My understanding is they were dressed in attire that would indicate some Muslim type religion.” I am not sure now many “Muslim type religion[s]” there are but Comair insists that this has nothing to do with the fact that they were wearing traditional Muslim clothing. It appears that if you linger too long in the bathroom (which might have something to do with the fact that the toilet was broken), you are likely to be thrown off a flight with Comair.

The family was allowed on a later flight (and presumably avoided the bathroom).

Comair is a subsidiary of Delta.

    Why denigrate yourself? The classics are available to everyone. I see Tootie is availing herself of the educational opportunities available to us all at Borders or the public library. You should take a page from Tooties study guide, John Locke is a good place to start.
