A Muslim Passenger Alleged Discrimination Due To Islamophobia At 30,000 feet

Published on 1 June, 2015 at 2:01 pm By

Hundreds of people have pledged to boycott United Airlines after a Muslim passenger alleged discrimination due to Islamophobia over an unopened can of Diet Coke onboard the American airliner, reports The Guardian.

The Muslim chaplain at Chicago Northwestern University, Tahera Ahmad’s Facebook post over the “clear” discrimination went viral immediately. She wrote:

United Airlines spokesman Charles Hobart said that the airline was attempting to contact Ahmad in order to “get a better understanding of what occurred during the flight” and was discussing the alleged incident with  the airline’s regional partner.



Federal Aviation Administration policy forbids carrying on unopened alcoholic beverages but does not appear to have a specific ‘unopened can’ regulation.

 

Ahmad told the Chicago local media that she received an apology from the flight attendant on behalf of herself and the other passenger, saying that the United employee had “acknowledged it was unethical and said he never should have said anything”.
