US Airways 1, flying imams 0

The U.S. Department of Transportation says US Airways didn’t discriminate against six imams when it removed them from a Phoenix-bound flight at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport in 2006…

The department’s assistant general counsel, Samuel Podberesky, informed the Council on American-Islamic Relations of the department’s conclusion in a Jan. 14 letter.

However, the department did fault the Tempe-based carrier for refusing to book the men on another flight after the FBI cleared them.
