    Groups of ultra-Orthodox Jewish men keep delaying flights by refusing to sit next to women


    A flight from New York to Tel Aviv was delayed by half an hour last week after a group of male ultra-Orthodox Jewish passengers refused to sit next to women, the third such incident in recent months.

    The cabin crew on the Delta flight out of John F. Kennedy Airport tried to find seats for the men, but were met with refusal by other passengers, some of whom who took a dim view of the reasoning behind the request.

    The incident took place on Delta flight 468 on 20 December, the Israeli publication The Times of Israel reports. An American passenger ultimately switched seats with the men.

    This is the third widely reported incident in the last few months in which ultra-Orthodox Jewish men have delayed a flight by asking to be segregated from women.

    On the eve of the Jewish festival Rosh Hashana in October, a flight, also between New York and Tel Aviv, was delayed by an hour after a group of Haredim refused to sit next to women.

    In this case, passengers ultimately left the plane before take-off.

    A month earlier in September an El Al flight descended into an “11-hour long nightmare” after a group of Haredi Jewish passengers refused to sit next to women.

    The ultra-Orthodox passengers, also travelling between New York and the Israeli capital, agreed to sit in their assigned seats for take-off but only after delaying the plane and offering money to switch seats with other passengers.

    Haven't worked those flights but I hear that's pretty standard stuff. It's understood going in so not that big of a deal in general. It's more of a big deal on the logistic end of it -- how to make it work because it's the way it's gotta be. Just part of doing business in that market. Not my bag, but it's a long flight so it pays well and therefore has many crew members in line wanting to fly it.

    I suspect the reason they don't just say "get the fuck off the plane if you don't like it " to the Jewish fellows is political correctness. They happen to be in a protected group. A lot of people have been tossed or even jailed for merely insulting the flight attendants or refusing to give up a seat when asked.

    Until about 1990 or so this wasn't a big problem. People were people, not members of various victim groups.

    When they start shooting me for my sneakers I'll be offended.

    Until then, if you're flying to ISRAEL, what do you expect?

    I'm surprised El Al doesn't offer a charter. You could run it weekly on the most requested day, set up Kosher everything and charge the fuck outta them. That way, for the regular flights, you could theoretically tell them to fuck themselves.

    I've never been to Israel. I don't expect to ever go to Israel. So I"m not the least bit bothered by any of this.
