A man who had been traveling on the Southwest Airlines has said that his wife had been called out by one of the flight attendants because the attendant thought that the other passengers were made uncomfortable because of her.
The journalist by the name of Mehdi Hasan has shared his story on the social media website on Twitter where he has said that attendant of the flight had confronted his wife after she had asked the attendant to change seats and swap them with one more passenger so she would be able to sit with the family. As per Hasan, the attendant had complained about the woman who as Muslim to the ground staff.
The flight had been operating on the Thanksgiving holiday on a policy which was an open-seating one and it meant that the passengers would not have the locations assigned and seats had been picked as the passengers came on the basis of first come first served, as per the reports.
Hasan in continuation of his story had explained how this flight attendant had escalated this situation seemingly. He said that the attendant called the ground staff on the plane and had complained about his wife who was a Muslim woman to them and instead of managing the situation and looking for a solution, escalated it as the woman was being polite with the man and asked if he would be willing to give his seat up for their family.
Later, Hasan had posted saying that the airlines had written an apology to him in a private manner and not done so publicly which prompted the company to later reply on the thread which was originally posted by Hasan.
