In the UK a British teach was stopped from boarding a plane to the US from Iceland.

AFAIK even when you group book you have to provide passport details for background checks (despite the */11 planes being internal flights) so he should have been advised beforehand he would be be refused entry to the US.

It was a stopover for a party of schoolchildren from his school.

Would you be surprised his name was Mohamed and he was of the darker complexion?
