Airline abuse

In the past three or four years I have heard stories about the mistreatment of Iranians by some of the Northwest Airline staff at Minneapolis airport.

I know of three families who are about to sue NWA for an incident which happened last May.

They were denied boarding because they did not have a Netherlands transit visa - which we all know is not needed - and surely NWA staff knew that after so many years of handling Iranians passengers.

If there are other Iranians who have been subject to similar or any other mistreatments and they feel that was because of their nationality, this suit can be broadened into a class-action (group) suit.
