Flight attendants are put in difficult situations every day, as they often have to deal with some people who are not so nice or patient. This week, a story is going viral about a flight attendant who made a politically incorrect move that passengers felt was necessary after seeing a customer insult his elderly seat mate.
A 50-something year old Muslim man got on a crowded flight and immediately did not want to sit in his assigned seat. The man was furious to see that the person sitting next to him was an elderly white woman reading her Bible. Enraged and disgusted, the Muslim man called the flight attendant and said, “I cannot sit here next to this infidel.”
“Let me see if I can find another seat,” she replied.
After checking her flight manifest, the flight attendant came back and said, “There are no more seats in economy, but I will check with the captain and see if there is something in first class.”
