Don’t be rude!!! Didn’t you ever learn “if you don’t have something nice to say then don’t say anything”? Have a little ahavas Yisroel!!

they are just trying to cover themselves

If they were planning on doing a precheck anyway why didn’t they just tell the girl that they are anyway checking out the plane so she has nothing to worry about instead of just brushing her off!

brave one

April 15, 2015 12:45 pm

I have often seen strange things when flying and as an adult have been intimidated to speak up; but BH for the ability of this young lady. What a kiddush hashem!

why ask questions?
April 15, 2015 10:41 am

First of all if anyone bothered to read the article it already states the name of the airline.Secondly, how does her efforts here go to shidduchim and age?Yes,she is remarkable and I have great respect for her but how does that translate to becoming a spouse?People are sooo silly.

kol hakavod!

Vote Mussie !!!

April 14, 2015 4:44 pm

The technicians are probably the same ones that service all the flights out of Israel. The airlines usually contract out the maintenance when they are not at their home base. So according to some of these comments you should stop flying.

April 14, 2015 4:43 pm

What a brave girl! She saved an entire plane!

April 14, 2015 3:43 pm

May Hashem bless her!

April 14, 2015 3:41 pm

Fantastic kiddush Hashem
April 14, 2015 3:08 pm

Fantastic kiddush Hashem, kol hakavod!

I’m curious, how old is Mussie?

April 14, 2015 3:03 pm

our version of the story is that there was an issue that would have brought down the plane. Maybe it was just a small issue tat needed fixing but since they took too long they weren’t alowed to take off anymore till the next day. For all we know this plane took off the next morning and the next evening they used a different plane that would have flown anyway.

is she married yet?
April 14, 2015 2:37 pm


the airline is transearo
April 14, 2015 1:59 pm
April 14, 2015 1:49 pm

Such a Chasidishe girl!!

April 14, 2015 1:46 pm

i’m surprised she wasn’t arrested and accused of some kind of conspiracy.

Appropriate article for this week
April 14, 2015 1:45 pm

We should all speak up like Mussie this week of koach Nissan and tell Hashem it’s enough – we want Moshiach right now!

what airline?
April 14, 2015 1:22 pm


Chief Pilot
April 14, 2015 1:21 pm

Why isn’t the name of the airline publicized to warn the readers not to fly this cruddy company

April 14, 2015 1:20 pm

Lesson: Don’t follow the herd, neither for this, nor for any fashion of the day.

Keeps coming up recently...
April 14, 2015 1:17 pm

This message keeps coming up… don’t be afraid to speak up. Don’t be intimidated by the majority. Others will try to shush you but don’t give up. You can save lives, and others will thank you later 🙂

Which airline?
April 14, 2015 1:06 pm

That such an obvious flaw was not detected by technicians before the flight shows we should be careful about flying this airline.

April 14, 2015 12:52 pm

Mussie you’re famous hahaha

serious guts
April 14, 2015 12:50 pm

Idk how she did that! special Koach..
well one who saves a life saves the world… so one who saves an entire plane..!!!!!!!

bm friend
April 14, 2015 12:48 pm

Go mussie!! You’re so cool!

Will never take these flights
April 14, 2015 12:46 pm

Only el al , Ba direct for me!

Amazing girl!!
April 14, 2015 12:44 pm

Go Mussie!! Best Girl in Lubavitch!!

wow seriously amazing
April 14, 2015 12:38 pm

good job for standing up
sometimes i’m nervous to be the only one to stick out like a sore thumb. we should all learn from you!

oh those 400 tickets
April 14, 2015 12:14 pm

guess at those rate they can’t afford to maintain their fleet

I always say that true Torah Jews have critical thinking
April 14, 2015 11:56 am

…While the rest of the world just go along apathetically like sheep and dont have the ability to recognize when something is not right.

Amazing that even the flight attendants refused to listen.

They put thier faith in science and people and assumed the technicians did everything right. But one who has faith in Hashem knows that people can make mistakes.

Our first Bracha everyday is to know between right and wrong and make judgements.

The airline should pay her a million dollars for what she has saved them…

April 14, 2015 11:54 am

Teffilas Haderech always works

thank g-d
April 14, 2015 11:54 am

if l had done that,they would have called mental illness,so you see how vital to hear others and check it out,this happens to me all the time

Kol hokavod
April 14, 2015 11:51 am

What airline was it?

April 14, 2015 11:50 am

Great work.

To point out we don’t know that there would otherwise be a deadly accident or crash. Just possibly.

At any rate, great work and amazing story.

never be afraid to speak up
April 14, 2015 11:47 am

if you see say something. if they won’t listen do not fly!

Thank G-d
April 14, 2015 11:35 am

Thank G-d she stood up to those intimidating people! Took a lot of courage! BH
