Stewardess makes fuss: no bibles allowed on flight?
On its web site the Foreign Office says of Saudi Arabia: "The importation and use of narcotics, alcohol, pork products and religious books, apart from the Koran, and artifacts are forbidden."
But nooo... she's gotta make a fuss. If it was part of my religion to carry around a stick of dynamite, could I sue for not being allowed to take it on a plane? How about if I always carried around a bag of fruit or had a pet I wanted to take with me on the plane for religious reasons? (Note: often foods & animals are quarantined for health/environmental reasons... someone brought a bunny to Australia once, and that was a bad plan) How is this stewardess making such a fuss over something that isn't even the airline's rules?
