Pasenger Wastes Airline's Money, Yours Indirectly

Passenger Awarded $400,000 In Racial Profiling Case
A jury in Massachusetts ruled on Friday that American Airlines should pay a South Florida man $400,000 in a discrimination case.

John Cerqueira and his attorneys accused American Airlines of racial profiling after he was removed from a plane in Boston in December 2003.

Cerqueira said he had visited family in the Boston area and was trying to fly back to Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport when American Airlines officials ordered him and two other men off the plane.

"I have a feeling these kinds of incidents of racial profiling happen to people more often than we're aware of," said Cerqueira.

I have a feeling you're an ass, and I'll remember you the next time I shell out $200 for an airplane ticket.
