A heimishe yungerman who was humiliated on a United Airlines flight told Matzav.com the details of his recent saga.
The man took off on Flight ua999 from Newark to Brussels last Thursday evening, March 7. The man had asked the flight attendant manning door 3 if he can sit close to his friends, a request that was denied by the head steward, Jason, who stated that those seats are economy-plus seats.
However, once the doors of the plane had closed, the stewardess found two empty seats in the following row – not economy-plus – and gave him permission to sit there.
At that point, the head steward came running over furiously, insisting that the passenger return to his own seat. The passenger had no choice but to comply, and he then asked the steward, “What wrong have I done to deserve such treatment?”
Ten minutes passed and the supervisor came on board and ordered the passenger to take his belongings and exit the aircraft.
This unwarranted humiliation was followed by a public announcement that a passenger was being removed from the flight after having “misbehaved.”
The greatest outrage, the man told Matzav.com, was that the flight attendants made up false accusations against him: 1)That he banged on the table when he asked for a better seat. 2) That he said that once the aircraft will be closed, he’ll sit wherever he wants, a statement that has been disproved by many bystanders.
Plus, they threatened other Jewish people who asked what had happened with throwing them off the aircraft as well.
“I am shocked by what occurred,” the passenger told Matzav.com. “I hope that United will clean up their act. No one deserves to be treated this way.”
