I am John Doe.

I am traveling on your plane. I am riding on your train. I am at your bus stop. I am on your street. I am in your subway car. I am on your lift.

I am your neighbor. I am your customer. I am your classmate. I am your boss.

I am not flying to Chicago tonight am I?

A conflict between passengers at Lindbergh Field Tuesday night caused the overnight delay of an American Airlines flight headed to Chicago.

Flight 590 was scheduled to depart at 11 p.m. for Chicago O’Hare International Airport but was rescheduled for Wednesday at 10:15 a.m. after some kind of dispute among customers started at the gate and continued onto the plane, said American Airlines spokesman Tim Wagner.

While Wagner said it is the airlines policy not to disclose any information about their passengers, televised reports claimed that the incident involved a group of six to seven Iraqi Americans and another passenger who was apparently uncomfortable that the men were speaking in Arabic.

The jet left the gate at 11:14 p.m. but did not take off and instead returned at 11:26 p.m. after a traveler with a child elected to get off the plane, Wagner said.

The airport’s 11:30 p.m. curfew then prevented the plane from taking off, Wagner said.


Christine Zugay of Chicago was on board flight 590. She said that after the plane’s doors closed and everyone was seated, the plane left the gate and began to taxi toward the runway.

The pilot then came on the intercom and said there was a problem onboard the jet that needed to be taken care of, and that they were returning to the gate, Zugay said.

A few minutes later, the pilot notified passengers that the flight would have to be rescheduled due to Lindbergh Field’s 11:30 p.m. curfew on departures.

Zugay said she did not see or hear any altercation on the plane, but that disembarking passengers were talking about a woman and a child who had left the flight.

Wagner said that no passengers were selectively taken off the plane.

He said that all of the flight’s passengers had to disembark and that all were welcome to re-board this morning’s flight.

OMG!! San Diego has it’s own Flying Imams! Those swarthy bastards were speaking their crazy moonman language and probably plotting to…what? Really? You don’t say:

All passengers on an American Airlines redeye flight to Chicago were ordered off a plane after complaints about a group of Arabic-speaking Iraqi men, forcing them to stay overnight.

The six Iraqi passengers had been training Marines at Camp Pendleton and worked for Defense Training Systems, a unit of International Logistics Services Corp. of Anchorage, Alaska, said Dave Stephens, the company’s chief executive officer.

“They did nothing wrong,” Stephens said Wednesday. A company press release called it “an unfortunate situation for all flight passengers.”

Local law enforcement questioned the men, who were quickly released, said American spokesman Tim Wagner. The Transportation Security Administration did not get involved, said agency spokesman Nico Melendez.

Details of what happened before American Flight 590’s scheduled departure late Tuesday were sketchy.

A passenger who was traveling with two children got into an argument with the Iraqi men, Wagner said.

A woman…with two children…got into an argument with the Iraqis. Hmmmm.

OMG!! Michelle Malkin was in San Diego!



Yeah. Like I would tell you....
