I have not knowledge about that.

But I do wonder if this occurred during the Pakistan-India skirmish and no-fly situation? Perhaps the comments were somehow related to that?

In any case, I have had my passport checked, re-checked and triple checked by airline staff. I have been held back for security screenings and been the last to board a plane - even while traveling in international 3-cabin first class.

These things happen when one travels.
