Delta Airlines is in the news again, accused of being racist for the second time in two months, after removing some passengers from a flight.
Adam Saleh, 23, a filmmaker from Manhattan, and his friend Slim Albaher, 22, from Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, said they had been asked by the captain to leave their flight at Heathrow Airport after Mr. Saleh spoke in Arabic to his mother by phone, and he and Mr. Albaher followed up by speaking to each other in Arabic, causing alarm among British passengers on the flight.
Apparently, a loud argument between them and some passengers took place shortly after, and the captain asked them to leave the plan.
With Mr. Saleh’s large following, the story quickly took off, and many people were immediately critical of Delta.
