Lynnwood imam claims discriminatory treatment by Delta Air Lines
by Lynsi Burton
Activists are decrying the reported actions of Delta Air Lines employees after a Lynnwood-based imam claimed he was escorted off an airplane last month on the basis of his religious affiliation.
Representatives of the Washington chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, as well as clergy and activists from other local organizations, denounced Delta on Tuesday at the Sea-Tac Airport before delivering a complaint letter intended for Delta.
Complainants suspect a "possible pattern and practice" of discrimination against Muslims on airplanes, though Delta denies that's the case.
