Seeking to quell an uproar over alleged profiling, Northwest Airlines offered an apology to a group of 40 American Muslims who were barred from boarding a US-bound plane in Germany. The airline said Wednesday it will reimburse the passengers for hotel costs and other flights they were forced to take on their way back from the Hajj, or pilgrimage to Mecca, Saudi Arabia. Andrea Newman, senior vice president for government relations for Northwest Airlines Corp., said the Jan. 7 incident resulted from a series of mistakes involving a German travel agency, the baggage handlers for the previous chartered flight from Saudi Arabia and misleading information on a printed ticket that the passengers had received, The Detroit News reported Wednesday on its Web site.
