    No not for kicks for education. Before getting on board they acted funny. Praising Osama Bin Laden, 9-11, and chanting. Then they get on the airplane. They do not sit in their right seats. Typical terrorist two in the front one in the middle and two in the back of the plane. Then they ask for seat belt extenders which they did not need. They they started praying outloud and scaring every one. So we kicked them off the plane like we anyone who acts funny on a plane.
    Now they come back with the help of CARE, they are sue everyone from the airport, to the passengers.

    If the Washington Times is reporting it you know it has to be accurate.

    Thank God? Is God involved?

    I remember this story. I'm of the opinion that if people on an airplane are acting in a manner that teeters between inappropriate and provocative, those people should be stopped. I don't know if these men were acting stupidly or not, I wasn't there. I scream at screaming children to shut up when I'm on a plane. Had I been on a plane where someone started praying loudly, demonstratively, or in any way that called it to my attention, I'd respond and tell him or her to knock it the fuck off. If someone got on the plane and started loudly reciting bible shit, koran shit, or something from a cookbook, I'd have to react. Not you?

    I work as a gate agent for a major airline.

    It's always a VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY hard call when having to "deny boarding" to someone. Fortunately I've yet to deny boarding to someone other than some drunk fool...

    Needless to say I hope to never be faced with this situation.

    I would think its impossible to blame or name all the individuals involved. That is because even when a cabin or flight crew member askes me for some help on a situation, if there is any reasonable doubt I call system ops control. Not only do they usually make the final call, they have no knowledge of what this person looks like, acted like, or anything. You tell them the facts and thats it. Period. I sorta keeps all parties safe. But then again I have no idea how US Awys. dealt with this.

    Anyway, I could talk for days about being a gate/operations agent. So I won't ; )

    In closing, I think if the general public knew how many flights have been diverted, delayed, etc. for suspicious people of !!!ALL!!! races, colors, religions, etc. these things wouldent be such a big deal.

    Big deal: Miss the flight, talk to them, see whats going on, and accomadate them on the next flight.
