The NAACP issued a warning on Tuesday evening for African Americans traveling on American Airlines.

The organization issued a National Travel Advisory for American Airlines after monitoring a pattern of what it calls "disturbing incidents" reported by African-American passengers who have traveled on the airline.

The NAACP says it's alerting black travelers to exercise caution because, "booking and boarding flights could cause them disrespectful, discriminatory or unsafe conditions."

The organization says four incidents have occurred to make them issue this warning.

One incident involves a woman who was allegedly removed from a flight to Miami because she complained about her seat.

American Airlines spokeswoman Shannon Gilson airlines invited members of the NAACP to its headquarters in Texas to discuss the issue further.
