A Sikh actor has claimed he was barred from boarding an Aeromexico plane because of his turban.
Indian-American Waris Ahluwalia, who is also a designer, said he was prevented from boarding after he refused to remove his turban in public.
The incident happened during additional security checks before a flight from Mexico City to New York.
Aeromexico said it had complied with security protocols and it regretted any “inconvenience”.
He posted a picture of the ticket on his Instagram account. It carried an “SSSS” stamp, an acronym for Secondary Security Screening Selection, an airport measure that selects passengers for additional screening. The selection is said to be random.
