Wow. Do you see the difference in the way the story is presented?

Here is their headline when it comes to a Jewish family..

Headlines:

The thing I find the most interesting about this is the fact that they decided to publicize it. If it were me, Id be hiding in shame (Irrelevant whether I felt I smelled or not). And even if I would want to publicize it, my wife would never have let me

If I see correctly there was a reporter when they got off the plane.
Why was the reporter there? Seems strange

This is a good lesson on lashon hora. True or false, impressions will always remain.

Also, they probably didn’t think this through all the way on the spot, but I agree, I probably wouldn’t fight it publicly like this. Although like @ExGingi noted there is probably more to the story that we’re not hearing.

well all this proves that they sure did NOT smell. if they would think of any mildest smell, they would flee the airport.
but one thing, I don't see why the blame is on AA, if someone complains abt a passenger they get the passenger off, now that complainer is the 1 who was anti-semite if anybody, and they should be held responsible. but they wouldn't speak for obvious reasons.
they should've asked who complained, and put up a show, like who else says I smell?
AA saying that "alot of ppl" were complaining, is something I would do as well, to wash clean of the case.

THIS. If indeed they did smell, they would run for the hills.

But Zaidy, if you *were* from Chelm, you probably wouldn't think it was so dumb to *be* from Chelm.

If you were from chelm and asked if you were a chelmer. I don't think you would say no.
