OK- I thought this was really funny (then again, I'm not on the list), but if you go to the Azerbaijan Airlines website they actually publish the names of the 72 passengers who are no longer welcome to fly on the carrier!

That's actually hilarious! Do other carriers have "black lists"? I assume they do but I'm pretty sure this is the only one published on the airline's website.

The meals link is fantastic! and the gallery -- it links back to anet! At least they are crediting Airliners.net!

I love the Black List as well.

Kind of naive but fresh way of looking at an airline site!

Best,

I don't mean to steer this thread in a US-centric dirction, but I can't help but wonder if that would fly here in the US. I'm sure people would sue for libel or slander (I always get those two confused), but even aside from that, would it reduce the number of fights, idiots trying to open doors, and executives dropping a deuce on top of the food cart?

I believe that traditionally 'slander' = spoken , 'libel' = written , although a lot of jurisdictions have done away with the terms preferring something all-encompassing such as "defamation" .


I am sure that a lot of airlines would love the power to name and shame , although of course the sort of people who cause trouble usually have no shame .

I know that the former have happened a few times. But the latter? Has that even happened before?

Sadly, yes. On UA in 1995. Check out the 6th or 7th paragraph: http://www.nytimes.com/1998/10/04/we...cold-eyed-look-at-a-hot-story.html

Edit: To clarify, I did not mean to imply that the executive was the executive of the airline, just an executive of some company.

And looking at their list of partners it looks like they have agreements with quite a few airlines, all a mix of ST, *A and OW carriers. What kind of partnerships are these?

Anybody has any inside in their plan of joining an alliance, and which?

What do you think one has to do to get on their black list? I notice that Osama bin Laden isn't on the list, so presumably he is welcome to fly Azerbaijan Airlines whenever he wants!

Airlines do have their black lists, but those are in the res system.

For the deuce dropper, he is forever banned on any UA airplane, and if he even books a flight through a UA APOLLO agency, UAL will transmit to the other carrier the details of his banning on UAL.

This being told to me when I went thru Ground Security Coordinator training a very long time ago.

According to their catering section they serve sandwitches, so it's possible Osama fits that category. But Osama has a tad too much beard to be a female IMO.

Love the idea of a black list Big grin

Sometimes it's helpful to look outside our borders to realize how great we have it in the U.S, in many regards.

Although our system of government is not perfect either, we enjoy civil liberties due our constitution and amendments, which other countries do not. In this case, what we are noticing is a lack of "Right to Privacy" in Azerbaijan.

Meh, we do have police logs in the newspaper in the US, and we did used to put people in stocks and throw garbage at them or tar and feather. Nothing like a public tar and feathering! Heck, I have seen some fellow passengers who should have been ridden out of town on a rail, let alone be simply listed as undesirable...

Good point, but aren't you Canadian?

Love the blacklist though, all the Azerbijian and Russian names then Patrick Roe. Stands out like a sore thumb! I wish they told us what they did. What a great website, I want to fly this airline.

I can't believe they publish full passport numbers as well - surely this should not be allowed.

This is a good headstart for someone in the UK wanting to steal Patrick Roe's identity now they have his full passport number (500270XXX).

Fortunately, I'm not on the black list. I use to take some flights a year in the IKA-GYD-IKA route.

And after they fly the route with new acquired ATR-72-500 is a pleasure to fly with them instead the very old and bad maintained Fokker 100 of Iran Air...

First Class passengers are my favourites. They can't get any further forward without an ATPL.
