You see everyone is taken care of. May he become a big Baal Tzedukah.

“You people (referring to orthodox Jews)”…..
how come it’s majority of the time “you people (referring to African Americans)” who most of the time cause problems more then regular Americans…..

Attorney taking over, excellent

Delta lost the law suit at “You people.”

We don’t “ matter”.

Not really.
The world doesn’t care.

Two wrongs don’t make a right and there was nothing gained by badmouthing another minority race. This whole disgusting incident happened because anti-semites of all races are feeling strength in numbers. I remember being on a European airline not too long ago, where the stewardesses were all as white as they come. One of them, speaking in a totally audible voice, made a VERY disparaging remark to her stewardess friend about passengers in Chassidisheh “l’vish.”.I suppose she was counting on not being understood by the other Jewish passengers because she spoke in a foreign language, but anyone who understands Yiddish… Read more »

I wrote African Americans compared to regular Americans. Nothing what to do with white people or Europeans. Europe is known for anti semitism.

Really now

I lived in rural white America for years and there is plenty of antisemitism
Being a racist is not exemplary of a chosid of the Lubavitcher Rebbe

No one is a racist

I guess you are not living in crown heights to know what’s going on… oh and they all “happen to be” African Americans. And then people complain, why is no one saying/doing anything?! I guess with humanity you can never get it right.

i dont get it

it’s obvious there’s enough room in the above compartment for everyone’s luggage. why was he and his luggage removed? what was her stated reasoning?

“He has asked the airline for fair compensation…”
January 25, 2023 10:22 pm

He has asked the airline for fair compensation and threatened a lawsuit.

with these words you lost my respect…

Big corporations need to feel the loss

You have to show them in their pocket that antisemitism will effect them.
They could care less unless they are hit where it hurts: financial penaties and lots of bad publicity!!

Spotted a delta corporate man

What are would you do? Get him a bags of peanuts and chips and call it a day?

Why

I Always see this on flights to and from Israel on all airlines.
The CHAREIDIM always get on the plane with large and heavy bags that do not fit the compartment above the heads of the passengers. Exceeding the size and weight set by the airlines.

This is apart from the hat bags, the wig bags and the tallit and tefillin.
The food bags and sandwiches
WHY CAN’T WE BE JUST MENTCHLICH AND KEEP THE RULLS???
just not paying for over weight….

In this ex as ct scenario it was not the case At all …take a few minutes to watch the video and u will see…there is EXTRA space in the overhead compartment and he followed all the rules.
Also alot of times it seems like a frum fam. Comes on to a flight with tons of extra stuff but if you count the ammount of bags per family member that a equally priced ticket was paid for , they are really using less space then everyone else

I have had multiple bad experiences with delta specifically – where there is no one to talk to – they can smile and say, sorry I can’t help you. For example I had my tefillin in my carry on – the stewardess told me there is no room, I asked if I could check myself, she said fine, leave your carry on here (in the front of the plane) while you check above your seat. I ran to check – only a few seats in & when I can back less than a minute later, she had already given my… Read more »

This is sickening to my stomach that people can let this happen
If it was anyone else it wouldn’t go thru

They're called flight attendants now!

‘stewardess’??? How old is the person writing this article? Sounds like a grumpy Boomer with an agenda.

Plain and Poshut , this stewardess is an Anti- Semite!!!!!

I fly this route frequently and the LGA based crew are frequently nasty and incompetent. People come on board with dogs, cats, pizza boxes, beverage holders with 4 large cups of liquid, shopping bags, pillows and all kinds of paraphenalia. They don’t say anything to them, thats all good! A neat, compact hat box is the problem! And if there is a supervisor at the gate, why doesn’t she come on board to assess the situation? Why is a flight attendant empowered to throw people off flights? Who do we contact at Delta to complain! I am a Platinum flyer… Read more »
