After getting kicked off a Virgin Atlantic flight, an entitled migrant, who was on his way to the United States, is now demanding the company give in to him. In fact, he believes the response to his actions on the plane was a “massive overreaction” made by the cabin crew, but the airline company hasn’t backed down and has given the agitator the perfect response.
Mohammad Khan was flying from London Heathrow Airport to Atlanta, Georgia when he was escorted off the plane by police after he made a few unnecessary remarks which resulted in what he refers to as a “massive overreaction” by the cabin crew. The 26-year-old Muslim believes he was “racially and religiously profiled” during the incident and has resorted to suing the airline company, Virgin Atlantic.
Khan states that the incident occurred after he started talking to a stewardess and another passenger while the plane was taxiing. When the passenger began to complain about how long it took to get through security at the airport, Khan decided to chime in with a few unnecessary remarks. According to Daily Mail, “Mr. Khan claimed he said to the man that ‘there’s been more security since 9/11’, before asking the stewardess: ‘I bet your job has changed since 9/11.'”
The stewardess looked “stunned” and immediately went to her superiors on the plane and explained what had happened. As a result, the flight was immediately returned to the terminal, where police removed Khan from the plane. Although Khan believes he was “racially and religiously” profiled, that clearly was not the case. If you’re on an airplane, the last thing you want to hear someone mentioning is 9/11 — regardless of their religion or race. However, the fact that he was Muslim certainly didn’t ease anyone’s minds since it was Muslims who caused 9/11 in the first place.
“I know this would not have happened if I was a white man in his 60s who had done the same thing. It totally ruined my trip and I felt humiliated,” Khan explained. “When the police came onboard they saw a completely peaceful plane with everyone appearing calm and relaxed.”
For some reason, I doubt that’s true. If your plane was taxiing for take-off and it suddenly returned to the terminal because of the inappropriate remark about a terrorist attack from a fellow passenger, there’s no chance the other passengers on the plane weren’t troubled, even if they weren’t in an all out panic. They probably were furious to be held up, as well as nervous that something similar to 9/11 was about to happen. Flight attendants are trained in this sort of situation and would rather be safe than sorry. It has nothing to do with discrimination towards Khan, but rather, has everything to do with the safety of the rest of the passengers on the plane.
Of course, Khan views it much differently. He believes that because they didn’t charge him for the two-hour delay, it means they believe he’s innocent. He was even more furious when he learned that the staff wouldn’t allow him back on the plane and that he would have to get on another flight. Since then, he has been fighting to get compensated for the inconvenience, but Virgin Atlantic refuses to pay anything other than the refund for his plane ticket.
“We can confirm that a passenger was escorted from flight VS103 on January 8, 2016, by police after multiple customers and crew reported hearing highly inappropriate comments concerning security,” a Virgin Atlantic Spokesman announced, according to Evening Standard. “This is not a decision we take lightly and although such security events are rare, we have a responsibility to report them to the relevant authorities to ensure the safety and security of our aircraft, customers, and crew. Our team has been in regular contact with Mr. Khan and his lawyers, and we have offered to refund his flights.”
Basically, the airline isn’t going to give Khan any more money than what his plane ticket was worth – and I don’t blame them. He caused chaos and fear, and I have a feeling that the investigation and witnesses will reveal his remarks weren’t as innocent as he claims. The last thing any airline is going to want to deal with is the potential repercussions for ignoring a passenger who made unnecessary remarks about a terrorist attack and then allowed him to stay on a plane, posing a potential threat to everyone on board.
This entitled Muslim doesn’t deserve anything. He made the mistake, and now, he has to live with the consequences – which, mind you, aren’t even that bad. Just like Islamic invaders have done time and time again, Khan doesn’t want to follow the rules of civilized nations and is now hoping to get compensated for the mess he caused in the first place, and the end goal has nothing to do with what happened. He’s simply trying to enforce Sharia law, where non-believers can voice absolutely no opposition to Islam or its adherents. It’s truly sickening, but thankfully, Virgin Atlantic is sticking to their guns, refusing to adhere to his demands and finally showing one of these entitled Muslims exactly what they deserve – nothing.
