It was only a couple of months ago when American Airlines kicked a black man off a plane so a dog could fly first class. At the time, it was just the latest in a long line of discrimination against Mexicans, Jews, and especially African Americans. In fact, in October 2017, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) issued a travel advisory stating that African American passengers could face “unsafe” conditions when traveling on American. They cited four specific incidents of recent racial discrimination.
Welp, American is at it again. This time the discrimination wasn’t racial, but of a religious nature; a woman named Swati Runi Goyal, who is a member of the Church of Satan, was wearing a “Hail Satan” shirt.

What is it about airlines and in-flight entertainment (IFE)? There’s a big difference of opinion of what passengers want while onboard. There are some airlines like JetBlue and Delta, which are upgrading their seatback screens and offering even more choices, with JetBlue even offering DirecTV and SiriusXM content onboard.
American Airlines has tried to navigate a middle ground in regards to its entertainment options. Some of their planes have seatback screens while all of the planes they acquired from US Airways have no entertainment (and no power outlets).
American then went all-in with Team No-IFE when they introduced their “Project Oasis” seats. These seats offered no entertainment screens, even in first class. They did offer power outlets and the reasoning for the decision was that people wanted to watch their own devices while onboard, not a seatback screen.
Well, this product may be a sign of what helps save American Airlines from a horrible decision.
