This is SO politically incorrect, but this article had me ROFL because it was just so ridiculous.

I wonder if they'll come back to United for the lower airfare sale?

All kidding aside, delayed flights have in the past increased the number of deaths in terrorist attacks. The Air India (FLT # AI182 A/C Reg. VT- EFO )flight should have been on the ground at Heathrow when it blew up over the Atlantic Ocean. The flight had been delayed by 1 3/4 hours for fitting a spare engine.This act of terrorism took place on 23 June 85. 329 people were killed.

I find the article to be offensive. I do have a sense of humor, but not when it comes to the death of many people, and the racial stereotyping of Arabs as terrorists.

I, too, find the article to be offensive. I find it so because the humor within it involves a person discussing about waging a war against the West by murdering many innocent men, women and children at a time. When it comes to people like Nidal Hanani, he should at least be glad that he at least got to where he intended to go if not at the very least, of the fact that he was given a life.
