    The incident unfolded when bus drivers, scheduled to transport attendees from Detroit, to the rally in support of Israel, refused to drive them, leaving the stranded passengers stuck on the tarmac. Compounding the issue, the chartered flights, organized specifically for the event, did not pass through TSA screening, preventing the stranded individuals from seeking refuge within the terminal.

    Israel supporters from the Detroit Federation were stuck on the Tarmac after their bus drivers cancelled after hearing it was for the March for Israel.

    The repercussions were significant, as the stranded attendees, eager to participate in the Israel rally, were left without a means of transportation or access to the airport facilities. Hours passed as the travelers waited on the tarmac, their frustration growing as they realized they would miss the opportunity to join the rally and voice their support for the cause. We will update this story as more information becomes available.

    Important to retrieve all info from the drivers involved
    Full names, family history, school, churches, organizations, community, friends… business company actions performance…individual involved, just checking their phone activities it will reveal the source of this toxic/destructive behavior. Consequences must take place exploring all legal channels

    Every single one of those bus drivers ought to be made to reimburse each and every one of The 900 their full flight costs and any other costs The 900 may have incurred.

    Jj Friedman,

    What are you talking about!?

    The bus companies have a contractual obligation to perform the job they were contracted to do and the bus drivers have an obligation to perform the job they have been hired to do and are paid to do by the bus companies.

    The drivers should be fired for refusing to do their jobs and for opening up the bus companies to significant legal repercussions and monetary liability .

    What’s so hard for YOU to understand!?

    Post the bus drivers names and refuse to let them drive your school age children to school! Fire them from your schools contracts.

    Get the names of every bus driver and manager in the company. This is a civil rights lawsuit. These people, members of MY community, had their 1st Amendment rights violated. And their civil rights. Check the driver’s social media feeds, who they affiliate with, etc.

    VIN needs to get the company’s name so we could bombard them with phone calls and bad reviews.

    Hopefully bus company was paid via credit card:- Then open billing dispute, for not having received service that was paid for

    Bus company should be sued for breach of contract. All those drivers should be held financial liable as well.

    It’s the companies problem they should have provided alternate means of transportation. That’s what they were chartered to do
    As per the drivers sue the company for monetary repayment expenses

    The bus company is ultimately liable and if I am correct there needs to be a special license for picking up on the Tarmac, The company should lose its right to serve Dulles Airport and the Drivers band from employment!!

    The bus company and its pro-hamas drivers must be NAMED AND SUED! And the Rally remembered for the 300,000 who SHOWED UP!

    Maybe it’s good they didn’t drive them. Would you want to on a bus driven by a Hamas bus driver? Who knows what they could have done.

    Why couldn’t the arrivals take taxis or arrange alternative busses?

    This sounds ridiculous.

    Breach of contract is a legal cause of action and a type of civil wrong, in which a binding agreement or bargained-for exchange is not honored by one or more of the parties to the contract by non-performance

    Sounds made up.

    I’ve flown into every DC airport and if you miss your bus you can just call a Lyft or take public transit and be on the National Mall in less than an hour.

    It’s a half hour drive from Dulles airport to the White House. If they wanted they could’ve taken Ubers or other means of transportation like the train. Maybe they didn’t do research because they didn’t think they would need it. Always have a backup plan when traveling.
