Aeromexico Stops Six Indigenous Mexicans from Boarding Flight in Oaxaca

El Jefazo - The Fulano Forum

November 12, 2013

MEXICO CITY - A group of six indigenous Indians from Oaxaca complained they were discriminated against by Aeromexico because they were prevented from boarding the airplane with the destination of Hermosillo, Sonora, in spite of the fact they had their tickets in hand.

Those complaining, from Sola de Vega and San Jacianto, explained that last November 6 airline supervisor, Francisco Cáceres, denied them boarding at the Benito Juárez International airport in Oaxaca, supposedly because there were indigenous and because of the clothing they were wearing.

Neftalí Bautista and Sofía Santa Anna, representatives of the Reforma travel agency, complained that the youths suffered discrimination.

Bautista said that the tickets were purchased in advance last October 28, and on November 6 they were to board flight 544 and 706, with a stop in Mexico City.

Severiano López, Marcelo Pérez, Gilberto Ruiz, José Rojas, Benedicto Eras and Florentino Bautista said the Aeroméxico supervisor stopped them from getting on flight 544, Oaxaca - Mexico City and 706, Mexico City to Sonora.
