Legally I don't know where the pilot stands; besides probably being fired. But I wish the whole plane would have gotten off when given the opportunity.

Would you wakk in a bank with a mask on and not expect the bank manager to react to your being thair? give me a brake,aney one of the passangers who sed thay were not uncomfortable is full of S**T. IT IS THE CAPT.FINAL WORD on who flys. It mite not be P.C. but I dont blame aney one, I WOULD BE UNCOMFORTABLE ALSO. sorry but two Muslims plus a airliner = at the least nerves passangers and we all have seen worse case. 9/11! Thair lack of consideration for the other passangers is what gets me. The pilot did what all the other passangers were wishing thay could do. FLYING IS NOT A RITE...IT IS A PRIVLAGE.you give up some rites when you step in the cabin. That means you to Mr. Baldwin turn off all electronic devices applys to everyone

wow! What is wrong with people? I don't care if the guy was Chuck Yeager, Neil Armstrong or the Chief pilot of Delta!! He has no right to kick someone off just because of what they are wearing. Further, according to the article, no one else BUT the pilot was uncomfortable with having the two men aboard. Even more, the men were searched numerous times. The pilot needs to get a grip and don't give me that 9/11 bull crap! Millions of Muslims fly all the time without any incident! Correct me if i am wrong, but the last dickhead we read about on here who disrupted a flight, was a rich a-hole white guy!

They do kick people off all the time because if their attire. Some they call indecent, some they just call nasty.

yes, you are right. But we are not talking about a guy coming on board in a mankini! These guys were fully dressed and were not indecent or nasty.

I don't think attire is the issue anyway. Would be interesting to see this play out in court and see just how much lattitude the airlines have as to who they refuse service to. Probably Delta will just give them some money and that will be the end of it. The pilot side would be interesting also. Apparantly he was uncomfortable even if the pax were not.

Yep, i think it will be settled out of court. I would imagine the pilot will be seriously reprimanded though.

There are many folks that I choose not to have tea with or associate with on my own time, BUT, in this situation, there were X number of other people on that plane that had cleared security and paid for their ticket, and wated to go to ATL, mabybe an hou and a half away, including these 2 folks. This was all hashed out in this column in about the same manner when it happened earlier in the year. By the fact that 2 higher level managers could not change the pilot's mind and it turned out to actually be a personal problem with him, I think these guys stand on solid ground, as far as being in the right.As far as the suit, everybody likes money.
