PHILADELPHIA (CBS) Riders will have their commute affected Monday after cracks were found in SEPTAs Market-Frankford Line cars. Two SEPTA Market Frankford cars have been taken out of service this weekend after cracks were found.

.

Beginning Monday morning, between 30-40 more will be removed, SEPTA officials tell us this is for safety reasons.

.

SEPTA officials say about one-third of its fleet will be taken out of service Monday.

.

SEPTA will hold a press conference updating the situation Monday at 1:00 p.m.

.

SEPTAs Carla Showell-Lee said they are working to make this inconvenience as smooth as possible for riders.

.

People should know that the Market Frankford Line trains will continue to operate between 69th Street Transportation Center and the Frankford Transportation Center, she said. Were gonna have shuttle buses, about 60 out there between the peak hours of 6 a.m. and 10 a.m. and then 3 p.m. until 7 p.m. at select stations.

SEPTA TRANSPORTATION ALERT



Market-Frankford Line
SERVICE ADVISORY | Market Frankford Line - Supplemental Bus Service: Adjustments to the Market Frankford Line will be in effect beginning Monday, February 6, 2017. Visit the Market Frankford Line Supplemental Bus Service page for additional information

.

A crack in a body bolster (a main load carrying structural beam) was uncovered this weekend on one Market Frankford Line car undergoing a scheduled vehicle overhaul. Subsequent inspections revealed an additional car with a crack. In the interest of safety, we took a proactive measure to temporarily pull from service some of the fleet that have indications of a crack. All Market Frankford Line trains currently in service and those that will be in operation on Monday have been inspected. Having taken this step, adjustments to Market Frankford Line service will be made beginning with Monday, February 6, 2017.

.

Market Frankford Line trains will continue in operation between 69th Street Transportation Center and Frankford Transportation Center and will make stops but we will be 30-40 cars short of the 144 needed to run regular, weekday peak hour service levels.

.

During AM and PM peak travel hours we anticipate the trains and platforms will become very crowded. To ensure the safety of customers we will supplement Market Frankford service with shuttle buses, serving select stations, during the AM Peak - 6:00 a.m.-10:00 a.m. and PM Peak - 3:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m. (see details below).

.

SEPTA will have personnel at each station, during the hours noted above, monitoring crowding conditions. They will determine if customers can be directed to the train platform or to the shuttle bus but we ask you to be prepared to use a shuttle bus if you are traveling from one of the stations noted below.

.

This remains a fluid situation and we will continue to keep you updated on any service changes and the work to return cars to the fleet.

UPPER DARBY >> A SEPTA operator was critically injured Tuesday morning when a westbound SEPTA Market-Frankfort Line train derailed after it collided with a stopped train at 69th Street Terminal.

.

Seven cars were at least partially derailed, injuring four people two operators and two passengers around 8:10 a.m. Tuesday morning.

.

SEPTA Assistant General Manager Scott Sauer said that Train 67 was waiting in queue for the station to clear when the westbound-traveling Train 57 collided with it on the turnaround loop.

.

Four cars from Train 57 derailed, and three cars from Train 67 derailed. Additionally, a third train was impacted when a car from the colliding train derailed onto the adjacent track.

.

The operator of Train 57 was listed in critical condition at Lankenau Hospital.

.

snip

.

Sauer said in the preliminary investigation it wasnt clear why the passengers were still aboard. He indicted that the trains were non-revenue trains which means they were not meant for carrying passengers.

.

snip

.

The M4 trains that comprise the Market-Frankford Line were built and delivered by ADTranz between 1996 and 1999. They were the first heavy rail cars in SEPTAs fleet that offered electronic designation signs.

.

Tuesday evening, work to re-rail the train cars was put on hold as SEPTA awaited the arrival of the National Transit Safety Board to arrive from Washington D.C. to take over the investigation. Questions that remained unanswered Tuesday evening were why the operator failed to stop in lieu of safety measures that should have prevented such an incident, and why passengers were aboard.

.

Three trains and 18 total cars were impacted in the Tuesday morning collision, further making the already diminished MFL fleet even more strained. Earlier in the month SEPTA announced that a number of M4 trains, which comprise the MFL fleet, showed signs of fractures in the car body bolster beams.

Work Remains to Address Atlanta Streetcar Audit

Dozens of problems have been identified in a stinging audit of the Atlanta Streetcar.

ATLANTA (AP) Dozens of problems have been identified in a stinging audit of the Atlanta Streetcar.

.

Documents obtained by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

http://bit.ly/2mV9AFA

show the troubled $99 million project is dealing with a shortage in staff, lax safety and security procedures, accidents that weren't properly investigated or reported and defective equipment that disrupted service.

.

More than a year later, the newspaper reports the city has resolved less than one-third of the 66 flaws found in February 2016 for a project envisioned as a centerpiece of the city's revitalization.

.

The city has completely resolved only 20 of them. It's unclear how soon officials will complete the rest of the audit's concerns. The Georgia Department of Transportation says the city is on track to finish the list by June.

.

Ridership fell nearly 60 percent last year after Atlanta began charging $1 to ride, federal statistics show. And the city estimates a third to a half of passengers still don't bother to pay.

.

Critics argue the streetcar is a failure and waste of taxpayers' dollars and should be abandoned.

.

Instead, Atlanta plans a major expansion.

.

The Atlanta Streetcar debuted in December 2014 to great fanfare and high expectations. The system runs on a 2.7-mile loop that connects Centennial Olympic Park, the King Center, Georgia State University and the Peachtree Center MARTA rail station. Critics say it's sometimes faster to walk the line that to wait on a streetcar that winds through traffic.

.

Despite the rocky start, the city still hopes to use the existing line as a launching point to create a 53-mile streetcar and light rail network across the city. It's a move that would cost billions, but supporters contend it's a long-term investment that will transform Atlanta as it expands, connecting to the Beltline and other attractions and drawing a new generation of workers and residents.

.

snip

.


"I think that over time it will prove successful, even with the toughest critics," said A. J. Robinson, president of the Atlanta Downtown Improvement District, which helped pay for the streetcar. "If Atlanta wants to be competitive with the rest of the country . these are the types of investments you have to make."

Work Remains to Address Atlanta Streetcar Audit

Dozens of problems have been identified in a stinging audit of the Atlanta Streetcar.

ATLANTA (AP)  Dozens of problems have been identified in a stinging audit of the Atlanta Streetcar.

.

Documents obtained by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

http://bit.ly/2mV9AFA

show the troubled $99 million project is dealing with a shortage in staff, lax safety and security procedures, accidents that weren't properly investigated or reported and defective equipment that disrupted service.

.

More than a year later, the newspaper reports the city has resolved less than one-third of the 66 flaws found in February 2016 for a project envisioned as a centerpiece of the city's revitalization.

.

The city has completely resolved only 20 of them. It's unclear how soon officials will complete the rest of the audit's concerns. The Georgia Department of Transportation says the city is on track to finish the list by June.

.

Ridership fell nearly 60 percent last year after Atlanta began charging $1 to ride, federal statistics show. And the city estimates a third to a half of passengers still don't bother to pay.

.

Critics argue the streetcar is a failure and waste of taxpayers' dollars and should be abandoned.

.

Instead, Atlanta plans a major expansion.

.

The Atlanta Streetcar debuted in December 2014 to great fanfare and high expectations. The system runs on a 2.7-mile loop that connects Centennial Olympic Park, the King Center, Georgia State University and the Peachtree Center MARTA rail station. Critics say it's sometimes faster to walk the line that to wait on a streetcar that winds through traffic.

.

Despite the rocky start, the city still hopes to use the existing line as a launching point to create a 53-mile streetcar and light rail network across the city. It's a move that would cost billions, but supporters contend it's a long-term investment that will transform Atlanta as it expands, connecting to the Beltline and other attractions and drawing a new generation of workers and residents.

.

snip

.


"I think that over time it will prove successful, even with the toughest critics," said A. J. Robinson, president of the Atlanta Downtown Improvement District, which helped pay for the streetcar. "If Atlanta wants to be competitive with the rest of the country . these are the types of investments you have to make."

Trump Wants to Decimate Amtrak-

So much for that infrastructure boost. Donald Trumps 2018 budget slashes the Department of Transportations funding by 13% from this year to $16.2 billion.

.

The cut would eliminate federal funding to state-run rail company Amtraks 15 long-distance routes, which drew 15% of its total annual ridership of 31.2 million last year, and include routes that connect New York with Miami (via Charleston) and Chicago, New Orleans with Los Angeles, and Chicago with the Bay Area in California.

.

The White House wants Amtrak to instead focus on providing service to northeastern states and regional routes. The routes popular with business travelers between Washington, DC and Boston, via Trumps hometown of New York, are the source of close to 40% of its ridership, for example.

.

So how would people get around the 3.8 million sq miles of the United States with far less public transport? Trump is envisioning supersonic travel. Trump proposed $624 million in funding for NASA for research that could pave the way for flights that travel faster than the speed of sound.

.

A supersonic flight at mach 1.4or 1,074 mphcould get passengers from New York to San Francisco in about two and a half hours, less than half the time the trip currently takes by commercial jets used today. Air Force One, a Boeing 747, reportedly has a top speed of 705 mph (paywall).

.

Trumps proposal comes at a key time, with several private upstarts already developing new supersonic jets and taking lessons from the failed Concorde. The last flight of that money-losing supersonic plane was in 2003.

Koch Brothers Quietly Seek To Ban New Mass Transit In Tennessee

The Tennessee Senate passed a bill last week that, if approved, would broadly ban mass transit projects in the region, an anti-transit effort thats gotten some help in the state from Charles and David Koch.
On Thursday, the Tennessee Senate passed SB 2243, which includes an amendment that prohibits metropolitan governments and any transit authorities created by a metropolitan government from constructing, maintaining or operating any bus rapid transit system using a separate lane, or other separate right-of-way, dedicated solely to the use of such bus rapid transit system on any state highway or state highway. The amendment is aimed at Nashvilles proposed $174 million rapid bus system called the Amp, but would apply to any mass transit system proposed in Nashville.

.

The Amp, a proposed 7.1-mile bus rapid transit system that would cut commute times along one of Nashvilles major corridors, has been staunchly opposed by the Tennessee branch of Americans for Prosperity, a lobbying organization founded in part by the Koch brothers. AFPs Tennessee director told the Tennessean that SB 2243 was the result of a conversation hed had with the bills sponsor, Sen. Jim Tracy. In addition, AFP pushed the Senate to vote on the bill??efforts that led to StopAmp.org, one of the lead groups opposing the Amp, thanking AFP in a press release after SB 2243 passed the Senate. The transit systems opponents say it would create traffic problems and safety issues due to its middle-lane location, a claim that a spokesman for the Amp Coalition disputes.

.

snip

.

The Senate basically took a local project that has been in development for five years and voted an amendment to kill it, Schatzlein said. The project is the first leg of a regional transit system, so this vote impacts all of Middle Tennessee.

Koch Brothers Quietly Seek To Ban New Mass Transit In Tennessee

The Tennessee Senate passed a bill last week that, if approved, would broadly ban mass transit projects in the region, an anti-transit effort thats gotten some help in the state from Charles and David Koch.
On Thursday, the Tennessee Senate passed SB 2243, which includes an amendment that prohibits metropolitan governments and any transit authorities created by a metropolitan government from constructing, maintaining or operating any bus rapid transit system using a separate lane, or other separate right-of-way, dedicated solely to the use of such bus rapid transit system on any state highway or state highway. The amendment is aimed at Nashvilles proposed $174 million rapid bus system called the Amp, but would apply to any mass transit system proposed in Nashville.

.

The Amp, a proposed 7.1-mile bus rapid transit system that would cut commute times along one of Nashvilles major corridors, has been staunchly opposed by the Tennessee branch of Americans for Prosperity, a lobbying organization founded in part by the Koch brothers. AFPs Tennessee director told the Tennessean that SB 2243 was the result of a conversation hed had with the bills sponsor, Sen. Jim Tracy. In addition, AFP pushed the Senate to vote on the bill??efforts that led to StopAmp.org, one of the lead groups opposing the Amp, thanking AFP in a press release after SB 2243 passed the Senate. The transit systems opponents say it would create traffic problems and safety issues due to its middle-lane location, a claim that a spokesman for the Amp Coalition disputes.

.

.

The Senate basically took a local project that has been in development for five years and voted an amendment to kill it, Schatzlein said. The project is the first leg of a regional transit system, so this vote impacts all of Middle Tennessee.

Light-Rail Ridership Soars in Year after UW, Capitol Hill Stations Open

The stations have shifted the way thousands of people in the Seattle-area commute. Sound Transit says 1.5 million people used light rail in February 2017, a nearly 75 percent jump from February 2016.

As far as celebrations go, Sound Transits big party roughly a year ago to mark the University of Washington and Capitol Hill stations openings was just the beginning.

.

Now, the transportation agency is applauding its spike in ridership due to the stations service. In the year before their opening, about 39,000 people each weekday on average used light rail. Now, about 65,000 people do.

.

In February alone, 1.5 million people rode light rail a 78 percent increase for the month compared to February last year, the agency said in a news release.

.

During the last three months of 2016, the UW and Capitol Hill stations accounted for roughly one-fourth of that daily average total. Sunday marks one year since the stations opened, shifting the way thousands of people go about their commutes.

.

The $1.8 billion tunnel from Westlake to Capitol Hill and the UW stretches three miles. The Capitol Hill Station on Broadway is about a block from Seattle Central College, while the UW station has changed access to the university, its medical center and Seattle Childrens hospital.

Bomb in St. Petersburg Subway, Killing 11, Sets a City on Edge

ST. PETERSBURG A blast that ripped through a train as it traveled between two central subway stations in Russias second-largest city on Monday killed at least 11 people, injured at least 30 and panicked the heart of one of the worlds most renowned urban centers.

.

It also cut across the fault lines of a country grappling with its first signs of political upheaval in years. Some are calling for increased security measures; others warned of an impending crackdown.

.

Authorities launched a terrorism investigation that centered on a single bomber who left an explosive device at one central station before boarding a train and detonating a second device. But officials gave no immediate confirmation of details on the identity of the bomber or any suspected affiliation in the blast, and no one claimed responsibility.

.

About 11 p.m., Russian President Vladimir Putin made a public, if carefully guarded, appearance and placed a bouquet of roses at the subway station where the train came to a halt after the blast. Above ground, children placed roses and tea-light candles at a makeshift memorial outside Sennaya Ploshchad station, the busy central interchange from which the train departed before the bomb went off.

.

Some of Putins opponents expressed concern that the Kremlin might use the attack as an excuse to curtail a nascent movement that brought tens of thousands of people into the streets eight days earlier to protest official corruption.

St Petersburg Metro Bombing 'Possibly a Suicide Attack'

BBC News

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-39486640

.

.


The St Petersburg metro explosion was caused by a bomb that was possibly detonated by a man whose body parts were found on the train, Russia's state investigative committee has said.

.

Fourteen people died and 49 were injured in the explosion between two underground stations on Monday.

.

The Russian committee said it had identified the suspect but declined to name him.

.

Earlier, Kyrgyzstan's security service named him as Akbarzhon Jalilov.
Bomber 'from Kyrgyzstan'

.

What we know so far

.

It said he was born in the Kyrgyz second city of Osh in 1995 and had obtained Russian citizenship.

.

In a statement, the Russian state investigative committee said: "It has been ascertained that an explosive device could have been detonated by a man, fragments of whose body were found in the third carriage of the train.

.

"The man has been identified but his identity will not be disclosed for now in the interests of the investigation."
No group has said it was responsible for the bombing.

.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, at a meeting with his Kyrgyz counterpart Erlan Abdyldayev on Tuesday, said the attack "once again shows the importance of stepping up joint efforts to combat this evil".

.

Authorities in St Petersburg have declared three days of mourning.
Russian Health Minister Veronika Skvortsova said the death toll had risen from 11 to 14 after three people died in hospital.

.

President Vladimir Putin, who was in St Petersburg - his home city - when the blast occurred, visited the scene on Monday evening and laid flowers at a makeshift shrine.

.

Shifting tactics - Abdujalil Abdurasulov, BBC Russia and Central Asia analyst

.

Several thousand fighters from Central Asia have joined militants in Syria and Iraq. They are often recruited from among migrant workers in Russia, who are particularly vulnerable to propaganda because of the injustice and abuse they face.

.

As part of shifting tactics, militants reportedly appeal to new recruits to support the "cause" at "home" as an alternative to joining the battlefront in Syria or Iraq.

.

The birthplace of the suspected bomber is reported to be Osh, Kyrgyzstan. Although this city is in the Fergana valley, where the role of Islam is particularly strong, it should not be perceived as a source of a growing "Islamic threat".

.

Islam in Central Asia is far more secular than in most parts of the Muslim world. Although the influence of the religion is certainly increasing, this is often mistakenly seen as a sign of the growing threat of violent radicalism, which effectively puts an equals sign between Islam and danger.

Bill de Blasio Will Push for Tax on Wealthy to Fix Subway

By EMMA G. FITZSIMMONS

August 6, 2017

Mayor Bill de Blasio plans to push for a tax on wealthy New Yorkers to pay for improvements needed to address the crisis engulfing New York Citys subway, city officials said on Sunday.

.

The proposal is the latest move in the battle between Mr. de Blasio and Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo over who bears responsibility for repairing the deteriorating transit system. The plan would also pay for half-price MetroCards for low-income riders part of a national movement that has gained momentum in New York.

.

Mr. de Blasio will announce a so-called millionaires tax on Monday for wealthy New York City residents to pay for subway and bus upgrades and for reduced fares for more riders, an idea that has been successful in Seattle.

.

His funding push comes as the subway faces a multitude of problems, and leaders at the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, which operates the subway, have called on Mr. de Blasio to provide more money for the system.

.

Mr. de Blasio and Mr. Cuomo, who are Democrats and have long had a strained relationship, have engaged in an acrimonious public skirmish over financing for public transit. Mr. Cuomo controls the transportation authority, but he has called on Mr. de Blasio to help fix the system. Both leaders have been under pressure to address the crisis, with worsening subway service hurting Mr. Cuomos approval rating among voters, and with Mr. de Blasio being targeted by a harsh television ad campaign by the subway workers union.

.

Rather than sending the bill to working families and subway and bus riders already feeling the pressure of rising fares and bad service, we are asking the wealthiest in our city to chip in a little extra to help move our transit system into the 21st century, Mr. de Blasio said in a statement.

.

The tax changes would require approval from state lawmakers in Albany a difficult hurdle, with Republicans in control of the Senate, though the urgency of the subways decline has raised the stakes and captured the attention of both parties.

.

On Sunday, the authoritys chairman, Joseph J. Lhota, responded to the mayors proposal by saying that the agency needed emergency financing immediately.

.

Theres no question we need a long-term funding stream, but emergency train repairs cant wait on what the State Legislature may or may not do next year, Mr. Lhota said in a statement.

.

Mr. Lhota, who ran unsuccessfully against Mr. de Blasio for mayor in 2013, also took a jab at Mr. de Blasio, saying he was glad the mayor had reversed himself after arguing that the authority did not need additional money. Mr. Lhota recently proposed a roughly $800 million plan for immediate subway repairs and called on Mr. Cuomo and Mr. de Blasio to split the costs evenly.

Seattle.

.

His funding push comes as the subway faces a multitude of problems, and
leaders at the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, which operates the
subway, have called on Mr. de Blasio to provide more money for the system.

.

Mr. de Blasio and Mr. Cuomo, who are Democrats and have long had a
strained relationship, have engaged in an acrimonious public skirmish over
financing for public transit. Mr. Cuomo controls the transportation
authority, but he has called on Mr. de Blasio to help fix the system. Both
leaders have been under pressure to address the crisis, with worsening
subway service hurting Mr. Cuomos approval rating among voters, and with
Mr. de Blasio being targeted by a harsh television ad campaign by the
subway workers union.

.

Rather than sending the bill to working families and subway and bus riders
already feeling the pressure of rising fares and bad service, we are
asking the wealthiest in our city to chip in a little extra to help move
our transit system into the 21st century, Mr. de Blasio said in a
statement.

.

The tax changes would require approval from state lawmakers in Albany  a
difficult hurdle, with Republicans in control of the Senate, though the
urgency of the subways decline has raised the stakes and captured the
attention of both parties.

.

On Sunday, the authoritys chairman, Joseph J. Lhota, responded to the
mayors proposal by saying that the agency needed emergency financing
immediately.

.

Theres no question we need a long-term funding stream, but emergency train
repairs cant wait on what the State Legislature may or may not do next
year, Mr. Lhota said in a statement.

.

Mr. Lhota, who ran unsuccessfully against Mr. de Blasio for mayor in 2013,
also took a jab at Mr. de Blasio, saying he was glad the mayor had
reversed himself after arguing that the authority did not need additional
money. Mr. Lhota recently proposed a roughly $800 million plan for
immediate subway repairs and called on Mr. Cuomo and Mr. de Blasio to
split the costs evenly.

Cuomo Declares a State of Emergency for New York City Subways

By EMMA G. FITZSIMMONS

Day after day, subway riders in New York City have voiced a steady drumbeat of grievances as the century-old system has descended into disarray.

.

Trains are unreliable. Rush hour malfunctions paralyze the city. When a train derailed in Manhattan this week, injuring dozens of people, it raised concerns over whether the subway was even safe.

.

On Thursday, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo, the person most responsible for the subways fate, signed an executive order declaring a state of emergency, pledged $1 billion for improvements and moved to make it easier for the Metropolitan Transportation Authority to buy badly needed equipment.

.

But even as Mr. Cuomo sounded the alarm, it remained to be seen whether his call to action would actually reverse the subways decline and change the daily experience of frustrated riders.

.

It had taken some prodding and a fusillade of criticism to bring Mr. Cuomo to this moment, but in his comments he seemed to acknowledge the immensity of the problem and the potential political fallout if he did not address it quickly.

.

The delays are maddening New Yorkers, Mr. Cuomo said after rushing to Manhattan, from a special legislative session in the State Capitol, for an event organized to solicit ideas to fix the system. They are infuriated by a lack of communication, unreliability and now accidents. Just three days ago, we literally had a train come off the tracks. Its the perfect metaphor for the dysfunction of the entire system.

.

Mr. Cuomo ordered Joseph J. Lhota, the new chairman of the authority, to provide a reorganization plan within 30 days.

.

Mr. Lhota should design the best organization to get the job done, the governor said, denouncing the performance of the authority, which he has controlled for more than six years. Within two months, Mr. Lhota is to present a detailed plan to address the subways most pressing ills.

.

Mr. Lhota said the authority would focus on customer communication, new technology and training of personnel. Transit officials also are examining new approaches to upgrade the subways antiquated signal system a frequent reason for delays and to buy new subway cars.

STATEMENT ON BEHALF OF SOUTHWEST AIRLINES PASSENGER ANILA DAULATZAI
Oct 4, 2017

.

October 4, 2017. Anila Daulatzai was violently removed from a Southwest Airlines flight on Tuesday, September 26 at Thurgood Marshall Airport in Baltimore, Maryland. She survived sexism, racial profiling, and police brutality that fateful day. Her mistreatment was particularly distressing because she is presently pregnant with her first child.

.

Professor Daulatzai's story has gone untold. She discussed her non-life threatening allergies to dogs with Southwest representatives upon entering the aircraft, and together they decided that she could manage by sitting away from the dogs towards the rear of the plane. Southwest allows for passengers to choose their own seats, and Professor Daulatzai found a seat comfortably distant from the animals. Contrary to the Southwest statement and various media reports, Professor Daulatzai never asked for the dogs to be removed from the plane, did not request an EpiPen, nor did she ever claim that her allergies were life-threatening.

.

Professor Daulatzai buckled her seat belt, turned on the overhead light, and started grading student papers. She was then approached by a series of Southwest representatives, and answered every question asked of her. She was never asked for medical certification, nor would she have needed to carry that, because her allergies are not life threatening. Despite trying to convince the crew that she would be completely fine on the plane, she was asked by another Southwest representative to leave the plane. Shortly thereafter the Maryland Transportation Authority Police pulled her from her seat by her belt loop, dragged her through the aisle exposed with torn pants, and humiliated her for the world to see in a now viral video. The Maryland Transportation Authority Police later disparaged her, accused her of lying about her pregnancy, and made racist remarks about immigrants. They also handed her a list of criminal charges, which have no merit.

.

Professor Daulatzai suffered physical injuries and mental trauma, required emergency care at a local hospital, including for her pregnancy, and is under continuing medical care. Professor Daulatzai has also received hate mail, including racist messages and threats of further violence. There was an attempted break in into her home. She has since left her home, fearing for her safety.

.

Anila Daulatzai, who previously taught at Brown University, Harvard Divinity School as well as internationally, presently holds a faculty appointment at the Maryland Institute College of Art. She is a Southwest frequent flier and is currently travelling to California weekly to take care of her hospitalized father. Her removal from the flight had nothing to do with allergies or safety concerns. Professor Daulatzai was profiled, abused, interrogated, detained, and subjected to false reporting and the trauma of racist, vitriolic public shaming precisely because she is a woman, a person of color, and a Muslim. This endangered the physical and emotional well-being of a pregnant woman, researcher, and teacher.

.

Professor Daulatzai and her family express gratitude to everyone who suspended judgment about what happened until hearing her account of the events that unfolded that evening.
