The safest way to travel

Architects and law cases usually go hand in with the terms ‘buildings’ and ‘negligence.’ Not for poor Seth Stein. The keywords, which the traumatised architects’ newly-appointed US legal team will have to get to grips with, are ‘headlock’, ‘suspected terrorist’ and ‘American Airlines’. Bizarrely, earlier this year on a flight from New York, the ‘tanned’ 47-year-old was jumped on by a passenger who claimed he was from the New York police department. Apparently, the overly-keen assailant thought Stein had been acting suspiciously by using an iPod – and looked like an Arab because he was bronzed. The humiliated Stein, who was sarcastically clapped as he was later escorted from the plane, is now intending to sue the airline for failing to protect him. You couldn’t make it up.
