Just as we were feeling all warm and fuzzy about the story of the Northwest flight from Amsterdam to Boston that arrived with an extra passenger due to the on-board birth of a baby, comes word that in Washington, D.C. Air Tran removed a Muslim family of nine from a flight headed from Reagan National Airport to Orlando because “passengers heard them discussing the safest place to sit and misconstrued the nature of the conversation.”
By the way – according to the fact-or-fiction site Snopes.com, babies born in-flight do not get to fly free on that airline for the rest of their lives.

re: “babies born in-flight do not get to fly free on that airline for the rest of their lives.” They shouldn’t feel too bad about it. After all, they already got to fly free once! 🙂
