Arabic man sues airport

As someone who flies, more than I like to, I couldnt give two shits about peoples tshirts. I am more worried about pilot fatigue and bitter mechanics.

The "ignorant people" aren't the ones not letting him on board. That would be the company that relies on those people, and needs to make them feel safe as it lifts them thousands of feet into the air in a tin can with wings.

This guy wasn't thrown in jail. He was simply told to put on a different shirt. Considering the fact we all have to take our shoes and jackets off, and have our luggage ripped apart because of what Arab terrorists did, I don't think it's nearly as bad as you liberals think it is.

You are mixing up reasonable (well kinda) and legally mandated security procedures with a tshirt that i assume made it through the checkpoint just fine.

When people forbid white dudes driving U Hauls to come within a mile of federal buildings successfully, we can worry about t shirts.

The self righteousness is blinding. Whoa.

There is a reason they don't show movies with planes going down while on the plane. But it's only a movie so whats the big deal?

Ahh, because it makes people uncomfortable.

To those who say no biggie. Next time a dude is on the plane and is of Mid Eastern descent. If your not already see if you can switch seats with the person next to him.

On this board, you can say all you want about it being no big deal. But you will probably never admit but when a guy like the one this thread is about gets on YOUR plane, you take a gulp and do the oh man deal and hope its no big deal.

Sorry if this guy was offended. But the hijackers had no issues getting on their plane.

The world has a different context to it. Blame those guys for the over reaction to a hip t shirt.

Again...I fear pilot fatigue more. Anyone who flies more than once a year pry wouldnt give this guy 2 looks...he made it through security I'm not worried. He aint hijacking poo with a tshirt. Call it self righteous I call it sanity.

Naw, I'm with ya but with a tiny however, the t-shirt is a non issue. The sanity part also goes with the airlines keeping the fliers coming back.

Too many get spooked and there ya go.

To make it past security with anything on you wrong nowadays is near impossible. James Bond maybe gets by now.

so where's the line? if not allowing someone on a plane because they're wearing a t-shirt in a different language is reasonable then what isn't reasonable?

If he was able to go thru the Express line withOUT being checked out, I have a problem.

The only line should be at security.

    • You would think, after years of childish behavior by many politicians that THIS is now the time to start "adulting" in DC. Maybe my gerrymandered district is about to get hit and made more competitive?  Or the demographics show my white, conservative base shrinking over the next decade?  Regardless, this is a great time to start reaching across the aisle to give those independent voters something to think about. Given that Bernie is going to throw out a universal coverage law, this might put a little motivation on the right to do some fixing to Obamacare instead of going full "socialist" with Universal Heathcare (how turrrrribbble!!).  Sometimes, you have to pick your battles, and what we've seen thus far is Trump's battles stink.
