CHICAGO: A Pakistani-American couple has claimed that they were removed from a US-bound flight as an on board crew member felt “uncomfortable” after noticing that they were “sweating”, saying “Allah” and texting. Nazia and Faisal Ali have accused Delta Air Lines of Islamophobia for throwing them off their flight from Paris to Cincinnati, Ohio.
Nazia, 34, had removed her sneakers, finished sending a text message to her parents and was putting on headphones and settling into her seat for the nine-hour flight from Paris to Cincinnati when a Delta Air Lines crew member approached her and husband, Faisal. A flight crew member had complained to the pilot that she was uncomfortable with the Muslim couple, the Cincinnati Enquirer reported. The woman was wearing a head scarf and using a phone, and the man was sweating, she allegedly told the pilot.
