HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) — The American Samoan teacher of the year said she and an Asian American friend were refused a free hotel room and other benefits provided to a white male friend when their American Airlines flight from north Alabama was canceled.

I am dark-skinned, I have tattoos over my body, and (the man) is the definition of a white American male,” she said.

“American Airlines strives to ensure all customers feel cared for throughout their journey.

Soon after, Ohio teacher of the year Anthony Coy-Gonzalez, a friend of Suluai-Mahuka, found out his American flight was canceled and was given overnight accommodations and more.
