  1. I’m not comfortable with the link to an unconfirmed rumor this extreme from someone called “pizzainmotion.” Curious to know if you tried to ask anyone at American Airlines? Because a poster in the comment threads claimed they did & got a response from AA saying the rumor is flat-out not true. This kind of thing can hurt real people who depend on tourism…To be fair, you did say that it was “wild.”

  2. I said it was a wild rumor. I chose not even to repeat the details of the rumor on the blog itself. I just thought it was interesting that people were talking about this.

  3. Pizzainmotion is not a fly-by-night poster or troll. He runs a respectable blog and often has very good-and accurate-information.
