The organization said that the slew of recent incidents may only be the "tip of the iceberg" in American Airlines' documented mistreatment of black customers.

One involved the head of the North Carolina NAACP, the Rev. William Barber, who sued American after being removed from a flight past year.
The NAACP said it has historically issued travel advisories when "conditions on the ground pose a substantial risk of harm to black Americans".

The organization called for an "audience" with the airline. "Until these and other concerns are addressed, this national travel advisory will stand".
In a statement, the NAACP pointed to perceived discrimination.
On Oct. 16, Tamika Mallory, co-chair of the Women's March, accused an American Airlines pilot of racial discrimination for kicking her off a flight after he overheard her dispute with a gate agent over her seating assignment. This summer, the organization circulated an advisory for the entire state of Missouri, following the passing of a law that made it more hard to prove (and sue for) cases of discrimination in the workplace.
