    An American Airlines passenger was hauled off a plane by police in New Orleans after she refused to wear a mask, authorities said. The incident occurred on a flight that was set to depart from Louis Armstrong International Airport around 9:30 a.m. Friday to Dallas, The New Orleans Advocate reported. “I’ve never seen anything quite like it before,” another passenger, retired Tulane University history professor Patrick Maney, told the paper. Maney said two armed police officers came on the plane and ordered the woman to leave after she wouldn’t put on a mask, per federal law for commercial flights. “She...

    American Airlines says it’s investigating a Texas-based pilot who spoke against an effort by his local school district to implement elements of critical race theory. Guy Midkiff of Southlake, Texas, has been flying for American Airlines for more than 30 years, according to the Dallas Morning News. His job remains uncertain, however, after he criticized a “Cultural Competence Action Plan” (CCAP) proposed by Carroll Independent School District online and in podcasts. The plan, which was developed by Carroll’s diversity council after white students were caught on video singing a rap song that contains a racial slur, called for the district...

    On Friday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Fox News @ Night,” Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) said that Georgia’s election law requires identification the same way Major League Baseball, Delta Air Lines, and American Airlines require people to show ID. Roy said, “It requires voter identification to be able to be used in voting. The same kind of [photo] identification, by the way, that Major League Baseball requires when you pick up tickets, whether it’s in Atlanta or, by the way, in Fenway Park in Boston or Yankee Stadium in New York. They have no problem with [photo] ID. Of...
  • Texas Lt. Gov. On American Airlines Condemning New Law: They ‘Admitted’ CEO Didn’t Even Read It

    Texas Lt. Governor Dan Patrick slammed American Airlines on Thursday evening after the airline called out the state’s new security measures to protect elections, claiming that a representative from the company called him and told him that the head of the company didn’t even read the bill. “Earlier this morning, the Texas State Senate passed legislation with provisions that limit voting access,” American Airlines said in a statement that echoed remarks made by leftists who have attacked recent measures to secure elections across the country. “To make American’s stance clear: We are strongly opposed to this bill and others like...

    Georgia is not the only state working on legislation to improve election integrity. Texas made a step in the right direction on Thursday when the state Senate approved legislation that would ban mail-in drop boxes and most drive-thru voting. The bill, SB7, was passed on a party-line vote. The criticism of the bill is along party lines, too. The Texas State Senate approved the legislation on April 1, a measure that Republicans say “ensures election integrity,” while Democrats say it’s voter suppression and makes it harder for people with disabilities and ethnic minorities to vote. SB7 passed on a vote...

  • American Airlines says it may have to furlough as many as 13,000 employees

    FORT WORTH, Texas — Two American Airlines executives are warning that decreased travel volumes means the company may have to furlough up to 13,000 employees, according to a letter sent to employees Wednesday. CEO Doug Parker and President Robert Isom wrote that without an extension of the Payroll Support Program beyond the end of March, they will have more employees than the flight schedule requires. Fort Worth-based American Airlines had expected to be back to a full summer schedule of flights, the letter said. However, due to slow vaccine rollout and the added requirement for a negative COVID-19 test for...

    American Airlines will not serve alcohol on flights to and from the Washington, DC area after supporters of President Donald Trump stormed the US Capitol, a spokesperson said. The airline has also increased staffing at Washington-area airports "as a precautionary measure." ... Prior to the riots, some airlines had moved their flight crews to hotels outside the central Washington area in anticipation of protests, CNBC reported. American and United Airlines had both said they would move crews to airport hotels, and Alaska Airlines told staff to avoid downtown Washington. This followed reports of unruly passengers on flights into the DC...

    A Portsmouth woman is demanding an apology from American Airlines after she said she was forced off her flight home because her 2-year-old son would not wear his mask. Rachel Starr Davis said she was in tears as she tried to get her son Lyon to wear a mask while the airline staff threatened to remove her from her flight to Manchester from Charlotte, North Carolina last week. She said airline staff and the captain had passengers get off the plane and then re-board without Davis, her son and her mother April when Lyon would not wear the mask. "I...

    American Airlines on Sunday announced that it will allow their flight attendants to wear “Black Lives Matter” pins on their uniform while on duty. In addition, the company is also working to design its own pin that will show its symbolic support of a diverse and inclusive work environment. “Clearly we live in a time where it is so important to have a dialogue about this important issue of racism in our society and try to find common ground,” AA wrote in a company-wide announcement. “American is truly committed to having an inclusive culture that is welcoming to all and...

    There’s pin-demonium brewing at American Airlines. Top brass at the nation’s largest commercial jet carrier is facing turbulence from within after it announced that flight attendants are now allowed to wear Black Lives Matter pins on their uniforms while on duty. The move has irked some of American’s white New York staffers, including those who have spouses or relatives who are cops — because they consider the BLM movement divisive and anti-police, saying it promotes or condones violence. “I take offense to this,” one veteran flight attendant said in an email to airline management obtained by The Post. “Serious offense....

    Of all the industries feeling the fallout of the Coronavirus pandemic, America’s airlines are likely the hardest hit. The Transportation Security Administration estimates that air traffic is down 90 percent as President Trump is purportedly considering domestic travel restrictions on top of the international bans already put in place. Congress sensibly stepped in to protect the struggling airline industry in the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and. Economic Security (CARES) Act, providing aviation businesses $29 billion in loans and loan guarantees and $32 billion in direct grants to defray payroll costs. But in exchange, Congress empowered the federal government to demand access...

    Things got bumpy aboard an American Airlines flight this week as two female passengers exchanged blows after one of the women used a racial slur to refer to a Black flight crew member. It’s unclear what sparked the altercation, but the video begins just as a Black woman passenger excoriates her white seatmate for using the N-word. A clip of the incident was posted Sunday by Facebook user Dre Justice and has since racked up more than 10,000 views online. “You’re gonna sit here and call him a ‘(expletive) (slur)’ while you’re sitting beside an African-American woman?” the passenger asks...

The man behind her was in the last row and reportedly asked the woman to sit upright so he could eat. She did, but then later reclined again, and the situation escalated as was shown...
