American Airlines passenger hurls anti-Semitic slur at flight attendant, forced off plane


NEW DELHI: An unruly passenger onboard American Airlines Flight 2506 to Philadelphia from Tampa International Airport was arrested after he created chaos and directed an anti-Semitic slur at a flight attendant. In a video of the incident, the passenger can be seen verbally assaulting both staff and fellow passengers.
According to the New York Post, he accused others of conspiring against him and hurled derogatory language, including an anti-Semitic slur directed at a flight attendant.
Amidst his outburst, he expressed frustration about reaching his destination, claiming others were impeding his journey. “I am trying to get to my home country and you all people made it harder for me to get to my home country,” he can be heard shouting in the video.

Tensions escalated further when the disruptive passenger confronted another traveler, clad in a blue pullover, in the aisle. Allegations of physical contact led to a physical altercation, resulting in the passenger in blue placing the unruly individual in a headlock. Additional passengers, including a woman identifying herself as a police officer, intervened to assist in removing the disruptive passenger from the aircraft.
Law enforcement were summoned to the scene, and the unruly passenger was subsequently arrested and charged with disorderly intoxication and two counts of battery.
American Airlines confirmed the disturbance and expressed gratitude to their team for their handling of the situation while apologizing to customers for any inconvenience caused by the delay.
