Sorry Christians, you will still be forced to fly AirTran.
Nine members of an American Muslim family were removed from an AirTran flight on Thursday after comments made by two of the family members were misconstrued by other passengers. Kashif Irfan said his brother, Atif, and his brother’s wife wondered aloud about the safest place to sit on an airplane.
“My brother said [something like], ‘Wow, the jets are right next to my window.’ I think they were remarking about safety.”
Well, there you go. Sounds like terrorism to me! Unfortunately, Muslims are probably going to have to deal with this stuff for years to come. On the bright side, it’s instances like these that help pay the mortgages of the Muslim comedians on the Axis of Evil tour. The Irfan family was reimbursed by AirTran, and later flown to their destination on USAirways. If you’ve ever flown AirTran, you know that, all in all, the Irfans came out on top.
Nevertheless, we have written a guide to help Muslims avoid these misunderstandings in the future:
