The airline puts the 2 on the next flight, obviously the airline did not have an issue with the 2 passengers


Gosh, did you actually read the entire article you provided a link to?????????

It is obvious that the airline did have an issue with the 2 passengers. Here are some quotes from your linked article:
Quote:
A man in a suit, who “seemed like a security guy from the airport”, approached both men separately, asking each about their respective trips to Alabama.

Mr Alkhawaldeh and Mr Abdallah headed to Starbucks for a coffee to wait out the delay. But Mr Abdallah claimed airport police were watching their every move.

“You could tell they were following us everywhere,” he said.

Once the pair were seated at their new gate, a man who identified himself as an FBI agent asked Mr Abdallah if he could talk to him in a separate security area, and said his luggage would be rechecked.

According to Mr Abdallah, the agent said cabin crew on the flight had called the police because they “were not comfortable” flying with him and Mr Alkhawaldeh onboard.


Emphasis above is mine.

Yep, it really looks like actions that are taken when the airline does not have an issue with a passenger.

I stopped trying to figure him out. After all this is a guy who supports BLM which is a racist hate group, but then he has the audacity to accuse others of racism against muslims. Pot, kettle, go figure. 🤷

Hmmm, a muslim who worked as a mechanic for AA for over 30 years sabotages an AA airplane.
This AA employee was arrested and the judge refused him bond because he might be sympathetic to terrorists.
This AA employee had an ISIS video on his phone.
This AA employee traveled to Iraq to visit his brother who was member of ISIS.


When that story posted here, none
of the details were known. I commented
that hell yes, he should be looked at
and I was called a racist. Notice the
Libbies all shut up when the rest
of the story came out.


Who called you a racist based on you saying he should be looked at?

A: No one. You’re making stuff up. Again.

EB blew up the WOV forum with that gay hatred thread
Maybe he wants to blow up this forum by now playing victim accusing posters on this board of calling him a racist
I never saw any post here calling EB a racist
On the flip side
I block the racists here but I cant imagine a racist here calling another member on the far right a racist

Whoa, are you saying that a right leaning member "here" is a racist?? 🤔
That's what it sounds like for sure......

Sounds like calling other members "racist" to me.

Amtrak is doing away with the traditional onboard kitchen, switching to serving prepackaged meals and easing restrictions on the traditional serving times. The change allows the railroad to cut costs associated with cooking aboard and keeping up with the white-tablecloth service that was once known to rival high-end restaurants and clubs.

Amtrak isn’t labeling the change the end of the dining car, but rather an evolution more in line with the demands of this era.

“It is part of an evolution,” said Peter Wilander, who oversees Amtrak’s customer experience. “The concept is to provide service the way our customers want rather than have everybody conform to one service delivey.

Do people still ride trains long distances? From what I have seen it is more expensive and takes longer than flying. Commuter trains still make sense but not long distance travel.
