In March, officials in San Antonio, Texas and Buffalo, New York both rejected the fast food chicken chain’s request to open airport restaurants, due to a long-running boycott by LGBT+ campaigners because the chain has made several donations to anti-LGBT organizations. The POTUS administrations announced plans to launch a federal probe concerning this situation. The decisions to deny the applications are now facing a federal investigation from the Federal Aviation Administration. The Trump administration agency said it would investigate the reports as “discrimination” against Chick-fil-A on the basis of religious beliefs of the owners. “FAA’s Office of Civil Rights has notified the San Antonio International Airport (SAT) and Buffalo Niagara International Airport (BUF) that it has opened investigations into these complaints. The FAA notes that federal requirements prohibit airport operators from excluding persons on the basis of religious creed from participating in airport activities that receive or benefit from FAA grant funding,” the statement reads.
