Two Muslim men from Texas say American Airlines profiled them and canceled their flight after crew members said they didnt feel comfortable flying with the pair.
Abderraoof Alkhawaldeh and Issam Abdallah said they filed a complaint with the U.S. Department of Transportation against the Fort Worth-based airline, asking the federal agency to investigate the incident. The men say American Airlines discriminated against them Saturday for appearing Muslim and Middle Eastern during a flight from Birmingham, Alabama, that was headed to Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport.
The pair says flight attendants reported them because a crew member noticed Abdallah flush the toilet two times while in the airplane restroom, according to a letter the mens attorney sent to the DOT. The men also waved to each other on the plane.
It was the most humiliating day of my life, said Abdallah, who spoke Thursday at the Dallas-Fort Worth chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations.
The passengers were put on a later flight. Alkhawaldeh and Abdallah were questioned and searched by the FBI and the Transportation Security Administration before they were cleared to board. [ ]
The NAACP issued a travel advisory in October 2017 for American Airlines after a string of incidents in which black passengers said they were discriminated against on flights.

Um, so? Unfortunate, but it comes with the territory since 9/11.
American Airlines is a bit sensitive about Muslims. One of their Muslim mechanic employees in Miami tried to sabotage one of their planes. The very name “American Airlines” makes them a target of the crazies.
They should have. In fact, should the truth be known, in my opinion, they should not be here to profile. They should be back where they came from. Sooner or later a lot of people will pay with their lives for them being brought over here.
You don’t say.....
"Why you profile us! We keel you! Alahu akbar!"
We have FF miles going with AA. Good.
I’m profiling you. Get the hell out of my country!
Pete Townshend on the right?
When you’re part of that Cult you can’t be trusted
Muslims still owe American Airlines for two airplanes and United Airlines for another two.
El Al (stylized as ELאלALעל) is the flag carrier of Israel. Since its inaugural flight from Geneva to Tel Aviv in September 1948, .
boo hoo. I think if i boarded an airplane and saw a flight attendant all hijabed up, i would get off the plane.
“Pete Townshend on the right?”
With a young Erik Estrada.
Welcome to the modern America YOU helped create, fellas.

How quick they learn the "victimization" whine and the and who to whine to.
