NAACP National Travel Advisory for American Airlines
The NAACP has for several months been monitoring a pattern of disturbing incidents reported by African-American passengers, specific to American Airlines. In light of these confrontations, the NAACP issued a travel advisory on October 24, 2017 warning African Americans about their safety and well-being when patronizing American Airlines or traveling on American Airlines flights. The NAACP has called for a meeting with the leadership of American Airlines to air these grievances and to spur corrective action. Until these and other concerns are addressed, this national travel advisory will stand.
