UPDATE: CAIR Sensitivity Workshop or Studio PR ? Jodie Foster Flightplan Attacked

UPDATE: No, definitely not a Disney PR stunt; nor a muslim flight attendant (at first) - but a female flight attendant with an Islamist boyfriend is looking likely now.

C A U T I O N: If you plan to see Jodie Foster's just released thriller, Flightplan, you should probably skip the rest of this post due to news media reporting of details ruining much of the movie's suspense for viewer's.

The Walt Disney Co. film was No. 1 at North American box offices last weekend. Jodie Foster stars as a mother whose daughter goes missing aboard a plane. The movie earned $24.6 million, making it Foster's second-best opening. Now, residual earnings have likely been impaired.

The AFA called for the boycott along with two sister unions -- the Association of Professional Flight Attendants (APFA) and the Transport Workers Union. The unions together represent 80,000 of the 90,000 flight attendants who work for U.S. carriers.

Although union officials will not say, and may concoct a different series of complaints for self-protection, it is a sure bet that an initial complaint was stirred by a CAIR sensitized, muslim flight attendant. CAIR spokesmen will, no doubt, claim their usual innocence and Disney will regret any intent to disparage. Will Disney sue the 3 labor unions or CAIR?
