Man Refuses Seat Beside Woman Reading the Bible
“I like this story! It was an excellent way to handle a problem on an airplane. It was a typical airline flight like any other, until one elderly Christian woman was insulted for her faith.
Now, the flight attendant who stepped in is facing controversy for the way she handled the situation.
Two major airline companies have recently come under fire after the world witnessed their lack of care and blatant abuse of their customers.
But I must admit, when I read this story I couldn’t help but smile. The young flight attendant in this situation stands head and shoulders above the rest and it’s no wonder this Facebook post has been shared over 83,000 times!
The altercation reportedly began when a middle-aged man arrived at his seat on a crowded flight, but refused to sit down. His seat was next to an elderly white woman reading her Bible, Disgusted the Muslim man immediately summoned the flight attendant and “demanded another seat.” The outraged man proceeded to tell the young flight attendant that he refused to sit next to an “infidel.”
So the flight attendant did what any good customer service representative would do and explained that she would try to find another seat. After searching for a seat, the flight attendant returned and reportedly stated: “There are no more seats in economy, but I will check with the captain and see if there is something in first class.”
Almost 10 minutes later, the flight attendant returned and explained that she had found one available seat.
According to Jones’ story, the flight attendant continued: “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 outraged man could reply, the attendant gestured to the elderly Christian woman with the Bible and continued: “Madam, 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 such an unpleasant person.”
It didn’t take long for passengers in the surrounding seats to applaud, while some even gave a standing ovation for the flight attendant. I couldn’t agree more with the brave flight attendant’s decision to defend this elderly woman and her faith!
This story is a breath of fresh air! It is worth sharing. Please pass it on if you agree with the actions the flight attendant took.”
Z: Do I know for sure if is true? some say YES, some say NO………but things like this HAVE happened…when I researched it, I saw stories similar to this but loved this one and had to share it TODAY 🙂 And, Snopes said UNKNOWN, which they usually call a story when they’d admit it’s TRUE except they don’t much like it 🙂
Blessings on Sunday to you all!
