The joys of flying

05/23/05

In early May, two overseas flights to Boston were diverted to Bangor, Maine, within days of each other. The first was Air France flight 322 from Paris. The second was Alitalia flight 618 from Milan. In both cases, a passenger's name on the flight manifest matched a name on the U.S. government's no-fly list. This is not the first time flights have been diverted to Bangor. Last September, a United Airlines London-to-New York flight carrying the singer formerly known as Cat Stevens was forced to land there because the name Stevens took after converting to Islam -- Yusaf Islam -- is on the no-fly list (Islam denies any terrorist connections). The question is: If it's supposed to be a no-fly list, how is it that people on the list are able to board the airplanes?
