someonesomewhere Posted January 6, 2009 Report Share Posted January 6, 2009 http://www.google.com/hostednews/afp/article/ALeqM5i9_XPfpm0_Xi0USqY-9P3ds2OhJgNEW YORK (AFP) — An airline passenger forced to cover his T-shirt because it displayed Arabic script has been awarded 240,000 dollars in compensation, campaigners said Monday.Raed Jarrar received the pay out on Friday from two US Transportation Security Authority officials and from JetBlue Airways following the August 2006 incident at New York's JFK Airport, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) announced.So, if anyone is short of a little cash to make the ends meet, or has a couple of unpaid bills they'd like to get tidied up, you might stop by the T-shirt shop this week and think about flying stand by. It's a thought. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
