"We've Been Trumped!"
UK MUSLIMS WITH DISNEYLAND PLANS: We were barred from plane due to religion

Two families, with 7 children were prevented from boarding a plane from London to Los Angeles.

Quote:The family asked if they were being stopped because they were Muslim, but were given no explanation, they said. Their bags were removed from the plane, and they were ordered to return all the duty-free goods they had purchased, and then escorted from the airport.

Quote:The families said their children are still upset at the sudden cancellation of the family holiday and that they have still not received an explanation for the incident from either UK or U.S. authorities.

Quote:They said Norwegian Airlines has told them they are not entitled to a refund.

Fuck Norwegian Airlines. I'm boycotting them from now on!!!

It was just a fucking apple man, we're sorry okay? Please stop the madness Laugh out load

RE: "We've Been Trumped!"
Regardless of the nonsense Trump continues to spew, a shitload of Muslims travel to and from the U.S. every day without issue. I don't know why this particular family was prevented form traveling, but this article was based solely on the author's opinion which was derived from the family's opinion, with absolutely no real data as to why they were prevented from boarding the plane. I'd be willing to bet there is another reason that is not directly related to them simply being Muslim.

What is your guess as to why they were barred from travel?

Not a fan of making guesses Smile The only thing it mentioned was that it was Washington preventing them from boarding and not the decision of the airline. There are so many different reasons travel could be denied, ranging from a restriction being specifically placed on an individual to travel documentation not being absolutely in order. Maybe someone was identified as a terrorist threat, or maybe there's a warrant out for them because of an unpaid parking ticket, or maybe someone just spelled their name wrong on the visa application, or maybe they tried to sneak some cigarettes through customs without paying taxes last time they traveled.

How is it that they are not given a refund when they did not receive the service they paid for? Being a Muslim does not constitute a violation of the terms both parties agreed to when this family purchased their plane tickets.

This is not only discrimination, it's also borderline theft if you ask me. No

Yeah, I was kinda "meh" about the story until I read that line. That and the fact they were forced to return the duty-free items they purchased seemed rather fucked up to me.

The reasons for not refunding the ticket can be found in the Norwegian Air's General Conditions of Carriage under the Article 9: Refusal and Limitation of Carriage


a) Such measures are necessary to comply with given laws, regulations or other provisions issued by government authorities;
Government authority here is U.S. Department of Homeland Security

9.1.3 If you are refused carriage due to one or more of the circumstances described in clauses 9.1.2 (a)-(k) above, a written warning is not required, and we will cancel the Booking with no liability to refund the Ticket or for other expenses.


So...discrimination because they are muslims it is not.

Were they on the no fly list?


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

According to CNN they were not on a no fly list and they even got ESTA approval from Homeland Security under the visa waiver program to enter the United States. They checked in with no problems and when they got to the gate, the U.S, government fucked them in the ass.
