BALTIMORE (WJZ)– The NAACP is telling people, especially African Americans to not fly with American Airlines.
The group released a travel advisory Tuesday night after learning what it calls “a pattern of disturbing incidents on American Airline flights” reported by African-American passengers.
One woman was removed from a flight to Miami after complaining about her seat. Three other incidents were also cited in the advisory.
American Airlines responded with a statement which read in part: “We are disappointed to hear about the travel advisory, as our team members are proud to serve customers of all backgrounds. We are committed to having a meaningful dialogue about our airline and are ready to both listen and engage.”
