Thread: On a flight out of IAH
#1 On a flight out of IAH04-06-2012, 03:44 PM
A 50-something year old Muslim man arrived at his seat on a crowded flight and immediately didn't want the seat.
The seat was next to an elderly white woman reading her Bible.
Disgusted ... the Muslim man immediately summoned the flight attendant and demanded a new seat.
The man said ... "I cannot sit here next to this infidel."
The flight attendant said ... "Let me see if I can find another seat."
After checking ... the flight attendant returned and stated ...
"There are no more seats in economy ... but I will check with the captain and see if there is something in first class."
About 10 minutes went by and the flight attendant returned and stated ...
"The captain has confirmed that there are no more seats in economy ... but there is one in first class.
It is our company policy to never move a person from economy to first class ... but being that it would be some sort of scandal to force a person to sit next to an UNPLEASANT person ... the captain agreed to make the switch to first class."
Before the irate Muslim man could say anything ... the attendant gestured to the elderly woman and said ...
"Therefore ma’am ... if you would so kindly retrieve your personal items ...
we would like to move you to the comfort of first class as the captain doesn't want you to sit next to an unpleasant person."
Passengers in the seats nearby began to applaud while some gave a standing ovation.
You just got to love Texas.

It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.
Live every day as if it were your last, because one of these days, it will be.
