NWA apologizes to Hajj pilgrims

Who's apologizing now?

Northwest Airlines for discrimination against Muslims:

Northwest Airlines apologized on Wednesday to 40 American Muslims who were barred from a recent flight to Detroit, but denied it discriminated against the group, which was returning from a Hajj pilgrimage.

"The passengers were accommodated on the next available flights to Detroit," Northwest said. "We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused the passengers."
