    Saw on the news last night that the so-called seven are muslim/imam types with their female companions in full muslim garb. What, they're not satisfied that just by the way they're dressed they run the risk of being profiled already? they have to crack idiotic jokes, too?

    MORON 7!!!! There are signs at the entrance of airports about making bomb jokes... Maybe their first flight... AirPhil should just have them thrown these st*p*d people off the plane and not bother everyone else!

    Ignorant fools. They probably didn't watch 'Meet the Parents' or 'Due Date' that they didn't know bomb jokes on a plane can be taken as a federal offense. hehe Of course, I'm kidding with the movie reference.
