The DOT enforcement office is back today with a $25,000 Consent Order against Delta Connection carrier Atlantic Southeast Airlines for violations of 4 United States Codes on discrimination based on race, color, national origin, religion, sex or ancestry.

The DOT found that two passengers were wrongly denied transportation on their flights following a security concerns. Two traveling Imams were removed from their flight and denied reboarding on Delta Airlines flight 5452 from Memphis in May 2011.

DOT found that ASA violated the law when if failed to reboard passengers after law enforcement and security officials determined the two passengers were not a security threat and cleared them to fly. Additionally crew members were found to have made false comments to the passengers that one them of them was on the “No Fly List”.

DOT has additionally ordered ASA to provide civil rights training to staff members involved with this incident
