Hey guys, greetings from Kampala, Uganda.
Because Uganda is one of the most horrible places I have ever been I am getting out and I want to visit a friend in Azerbaijan. Well, as I went to the azal.az website I found an interesting link close to the bookings information:
a blacklist of passengers. http://azal.az/en/blacklist.shtml
I didnt know what it was, and I thought maybe it was a blacklist of IP addresses (like Southwest doesnt let me book a ticket from Uganda because it blocks my IP); nope its a blacklist of passengers.
Are airlines allowed to do that? I know they can blacklist passengers, but can they publish it freely like that? Isn't that some form of privacy violation?
Also, I think they should just call it what it is: a rowdy drunk passenger list, because I am sure most of those people blacklisted were just trashed when their 'situations' occurred.

Quoting Airevents ( Reply 4): Mmmh, having travelled to both Uganda and Azerbaijan, I don´t really know if Uganda is not maybe the better choice of the two, except for the old city of Baku maybe?
= Having recently been to both, I have to concur. I actually love Uganda once you leave the polluted Kampala behind.
Live, and let live.
