This story has been around for a while, but it rings even truer today than it did when Snopes first reported it in 2012.
It seems that a 50-year-old obnoxious Muslim was traveling on a plane and found himself seated next to an elderly white woman who was reading her Bible.
The self-righteous Muslim complained to a flight attendant, saying that he could not “sit here next to this infidel.”
The perfect ending to the story would have been for the Muslim to have been offered a seat on the wing of the plane – after all, Allah would most certainly have protected him for plunging to the ground when the plane took off – but this version is close to perfect.
The flight attendant checked with the Captain of the plane and came back with this report to the outraged Muslim.
The captain has confirmed that there are no more seats in economy, but there is one in first class. 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.
Therefore ma’am, 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 an unpleasant person.
Passengers on the plane gave the flight attendant and the elderly woman a standing ovation as she moved to her first class seat.
