Words You Can’t Say on American Airlines

I’m still catching up from being away, but a quick note about American Airlines:

I was fascinated that on our flights they bleeped two seemingly innocuous words from two NBC programs they showed on the flight.  In an episode of The Office they bleeped the word “porn” from an episode, and in a 30 Rock they cut out the word “circumcision.”

Now, it certainly begs the question about how those words are OK to say on television but not OK on an airplane.  I also wonder whether if you find yourself traveling to a Bris, whether you should fly another airline…


  1. Well if it’s a bris at the AVN awards then you should definitely find another airline.
