Delta Investigating Anti-Semitism Allegations Against Flight Attendant On Plane To NYC


Delta Airlines says they’re now investigating allegations of antisemitism against one of their flight attendants.


ABC News reports that the investigation involves a flight to LaGuardia Airport on Monday night, in which a Chassidishe passenger from Brooklyn was ordered off the plane before it took off from Florida, but witnesses say the man did nothing wrong.

The passenger says it happened aboard Delta Flight 1541 Monday night from Fort Lauderdale to LaGuardia. He said he was yelled at by one flight attendant over his hat box, which he stored in the overhead compartment.

“And she tells me, ‘You people always come with a lot of packages, take that hat box, put it under your seat,’” the passenger said. “And I told her clearly I will put it under my seat, voluntarily, I will put it under my seat, if needed.”

Eyewitness News spoke with three other passengers on the flight, none of them who know the man, including one who shot video showing how the compartment wasn’t overstuffed.

But also, Michelle Landsman, who was sitting a few rows back, said she couldn’t believe what she saw next.

“She took his bag in a rage for no reason,” Landsman said.

“So I went up from my seat, I walked behind her, ‘could I please have back my suitcase,’ she told me, ‘I will show you,’” the passenger said.

Soon after, a security supervisor, seen on video in a red jacket, was called and the passenger was told to leave the plane.
