American Airlines Sued Over Passenger Expulsion

Flight Attendant Disrespected Religious Beliefs, Says Suit, and Expelled Them for Non-Compliance

A Brooklyn, New York couple has filed suit with the airline over their reported expulsion from the plane, when the couple refused to place a bag containing their prayer shawl underseat or in the bin, according to the details on file. Roberto and Elana Birman were heading home from Miami last August, when the elderly Jewish Orthodox couple had a run-in with the American Airlines flight attendant responsible for their seating section. The flight attendant, for unspecified reasons, removed their clear plastic Tallit bag from the overhead compartment and told the couple it could only be appropriately placed underseat as a small carry-on item.

LCC Customer, 777 Partners, Adds More Boeing's 737s to Fleet

Firm Makes 4th Order of the Year, Doubling Fleet of MAX Aircraft

Boeing inked a deal with Miami investment firm 777 Partners today that will see the outfit's fleet of 737s nearly double. The order for 30 of Boeing's 737 MAX aircraft will bring their total portfolio to 68 of the aircraft type in the 4th order it has placed this year. At list price, the deal is valued at $3.7 billion, and the single aisle jets will see service with the company's affiliated low-cost, affordable carriers around the world. The 737 Max has seen a return to grace this year, following returns to service and accepted revisions after its 2019 grounding fiasco. The order books have bounced back, by most accounts, with the affordable, reliable 737 none the worse for wear in customer's eyes around the globe. The Max reduces fuel burn and carbon emissions by 14% over the previous 737 NG, lowering the ecological footprint in a time of increased ESG importance.
