American Continental Airlines SUCKS !

YES... Americans sucks sometime.

This is pathetic. If this is the case of former president of India, as a poor citizen of India, what guarantee do I have that I'll not be forced to stand naked and asked to bend over for a security check ? Those days are not too far fellow Indians.

Indian laws exempt dignitaries like former presidents, ex-PMs, Chief Justice of India and even Robert Vadra from being frisked at airports.

"As Kalam was about to board his flight to New York around 10pm, he was put through ladder point security under which the former President was frisked completely. He was also asked to take off his shoes, despite accompanying CISF personnel protesting to the airline staff that Kalam was an ex-President and exempt from such checks. While the airline did not budge, the unassuming Kalam went through the process without any fuss. " --- Indiatimes

For me this is not just a protocol violation. More than just a humiliation.

Its great.. they apologised !

"“We have tendered a formal apology and we sincerely hope he will fly with us again,” Continental Airlines said in a statement.

“Our intention was never to offend Dr Kalam or the sentiments of the people of India,” the airline said. “We apologise to Dr Kalam for any misunderstanding and/or inconvenience caused related to the security check,” it added.

“We reiterate our commitment to comply with the regulations mandated by local authorities (Bureau of Civil Aviation Security) and US authorities,” the airline said.

Yeah.. u r right.
Most of them dont use brains. Instead they use computers for thinking purpose.

But I am sure. I cannot blame all Americans for some people' behavior. I like Americans, but i dont like the parasitic bureaucrats. They are taking advantage of people.

Hmmm. Not every American is like that (:

Don't judge. I do agree with the rest of the post. They should have been considerate.
