Reader comment on item: Fashion at Turkish Airlines

I'm not sure what the purpose of this criticism is exactly. Alcohol has been universally linked to numerous health problems, most of which are life-threatening. If any establishment makes healthy choices it should be lauded. Should the FAA come under fire for banning smoking on flights in the 90s?

Secondly, if the issue is alleged "creeping shariah", I'm not sure why it matters. If El Al refused to serve pork or fly during Shabbat, should it be criticized by outsiders or those who aren't company stakeholders? I think not.
