Bikini pic of said chaplain please. Then we can keep the thread open.
I don't care what they say, Malinatar. You're good people.
That part was too over the top for it to be believable to me. If it was just the lopsided treatment by the flight attendant I could buy it being true easier. Who knows though. Someone should have videotaped this if it really happened. We know that these days if its not on YouTube then no one really cares.
if the goat fuckers boycott UA, that could be towards UA's advantage, they'd be the safest airline in the world.
Did they release the brand of beer anywhere? Because it would be totally legit to make fun of Diet Coke vs Bud Light regardless of the gender/races involved.
The way I heard it was that flight attendants are supposed to open a container before handing it over so some idiot doesn't inadvertently cause a spill or something of that nature. I've never not been handed an open container on a flight so other than the flight attendant being an asshole, this isn't new.
Also, how much of a sandy vag do you have to be to refuse a drink for "hygenic reasons"? I guarantee she touched about half a hundred things from the time she woke up that morning until that moment that were more likely to make her sick than an opened can of Diet Coke.
Nah, it's pretty clear they were being fucking turds.
That said... I don't have a shitty job where I genuinely have to worry about people blowing me up 35,000 feet in the air. So while I sympathize, they're still fucking turds.
why doesn't this bitch just fly like those horrible hasidic jews in the plastic bags then
Yeah, need to feel real bad about oppressing the slave peddlers.
I wonder if she was the 3rd or the 4th wife.
Muslims often persecute non-muslims on the grounds of poor hygiene throughout the middle east. They discriminate against them in the marketplace and in hiring practices because people who aren't muslims are obviously "unclean". So I really have no fucking sympathy for her imagined, passive-aggressive, "hygenic" needs. They're not based in fact, they're just another prejudice like "lazy blacks".
But remember guys, muslims are the poor little victims. Just don't ever look behind the curtain of how they behave to non-muslims where they hold the majority.
huh? wtf, those dirty muslims eat with their non ass wiping hand, and i mean like lather their hands with sauce and shit and suckle on their fingers, two twigs = chopsticks you dumb fucks!
Maybe the best thing that has ever come out of that shitpile of a religion is the ability to make our own nutters cogent once in a while.Of all the petty complaints about airline service, hers may be the single pettiest complaint in history. Tahera Ahmad isn’t even complaining that she didn’t get a soda. She’s complaining that she had to endure the filthy impure infidel fingers of the flight attendant groping her Diet Coke can.
And it’s equally a study in the media’s rush to take her ridiculous soda martyrdom and turn into it yet another piece of evidence that Muslims in America are oppressed by the Christian Diet Coke patriarchy.
I mean, yeah it's petty, but if the story is true, she is quite literally asking for nothing more than the exact same treatment the person next to her received. And if the unopened can thing really was an airline policy, then the stewardess absentmindedly broke that policy handing that dude his beer, but then she saw a muslim and is like OH GOD I CANT GIVE THIS PERSON A CLOSED CAN SHE MIGHT HIJACK THE PLANE WITH IT. And if she really got some random dude going ROBBLE ROBBLE FUCK MUSLIMS, yeah that's pretty fucked up too.
It makes sense not to tolerate any form of bigotry against yourself, even with something as petty as an unopened soda can, because in this world if you give people an inch they will try to take a mile.
I suspect retarded inconsistent policies over islamophobia for this one. Could anyone on the plane get a closed Diet Coke?
I went to see a sport event in France and I had to throw away my plastic canteen because closed container were forbidden (the idea being you can hurt someone by throwing a closed plastic bottle once it's filled, but not much so if it's opened). Yet, people had some metallic cowbells. And not the ones for SNL shorts with Will Ferrel, the ones for cows!
Assuming her narrative is true she certainly has a right to be pissed off, but most people have endured worse treatment at the hands of airline employees, yet haven't capitalized on the opportunity to play the sensationalized victim card in world media. This dumb non-story was front page headline news on CNN for at least a half day lol. I also find it all too coincidental that this particular woman is an anti-islamophobia activist that's visited the White House and had her picture taken with the president, yet in Sharpton-esque fashion it certainly seems convenient that she was the victim of "Islamophobia".
On a flight a few years back on American Airlines, some bitch flight attendant made me put away my issue of Maxim magazine "because there are children on the plane". When I pointed out that the lady three rows down was reading Cosmo which had racier pictures than my Maxim, she just got doubly annoyed with me and told me I need to put it away "NOW". I should have lodged a misandry complaint against AA, but then I remembered they're a shitty airline with nasty old stewardesses that should be retired to the glue factory, so what's the point?
Of course, what goes unsaid by almost everyone is the real reason she wanted an unopened can of coke is that her religion teaches her that everyone not a muslim is unclean. Her very act of asking for an unopened can of coke was her own bigotry being expressed.
I would be curious to find out if the airline had any policy on how to serve beer. It wouldn't surprise me to find out they are not allowed to serve an open can of beer due to some odd state/company law, but are required to serve the soft drinks etc open (omg less weapons for the bad guys). I have been to a few states where in odd situations people could give/sell beer but they were not allowed to open it, only bartenders could do that.
I was in a clothing store in texas that gave me beer but made a point of saying he couldn't open them for me. Perhaps there is some odd rule at work here as well.
Is it islamaphobia if they don't let her fly it into a skyscraper, too?
So on a scale of 1 to 9000 what's the trigger level here?
Over 9000 jazz hands.
You can never have too many jazz hands
So this bitch managed to get a stewardess fired
"After investigating this matter, United has ensured that the flight attendant, a Shuttle America employee, will no longer serve United customers."
If there is really a policy about opening cans for "reasons" can she not sue them for wrongful termination?
Unless they're firing her for violating that policy by giving that one dude in the story an unopened beer can.
seems like she's getting "re-training" so not fired, just not serving ppl atm, also we assume it's a girl, but never did they state if it was a steward or a stewardess right?
this is taken from one of those "SHOCKING STEWARDESS" articles in 2012
says they can't even give 1st class ppl cans.“Of all the drinks we serve, Diet Coke takes the most time to pour—the fizz takes forever to settle at 35,000 feet. In the time it takes me to pour a single cup of Diet Coke, I can serve three passengers a different beverage. So even though giving cans to first-class passengers is a big no-no, you’ll occasionally spy 12 ounces of silver trimmed in red sitting up there.” That’s 1 of the “10 shocking secrets”
It seems quite clear that airlines have a policy to not give unopened cans to passengers. All the times I have flown, I have never been given an unopened can. They always open the drinks before giving them to you. If the stewardess made a mistake, it was in giving a full can to some passenger.

I've always had it poured out for me in a cup, and if i ask for the can, they'll give it, along with the cup. (cuz i'm thirsty and want more)
actually now that i think about it, they always give you the can if you ask for tomato juice, cuz probably 2 ppl on the plane ask for it, 1 of them being my wife.
Tomato juice is also not carbonated.
my jimmies were rustled for a second. So the women complains that that another passenger got an unopened can. The flight attendant corrects her mistake, and opens the beer can. Why isn't that the end of the argument?
"I'm a bigot who thinks everyone that isn't like me is unclean. Please give me special treatment."
"My religion teaches that God almighty created the universe as a place where people can not get offended by anything I do, and I am allowed to get offended by everything everyone else does. I demand special considerations for my faith."
I am fairly certain this is what religious people of all colors will be saying ad nauseum until the day we are all dead.
On the other hand, we have a known grievance-finder, who says she was denied a unopened can. Even if you buy this, so fucking what, maybe the stewardess briefly made a mistake with the other person. However, given her ridiculiously over the top renditions of what the other people were saying in her story, I think it is safe to have some really serious skepticism that anything like her story actually happened.

contradicting story, but has observations that seemed like first hand account
Diet Coke a Weapon? - Page 15 - FlyerTalk ForumsI was actually on this flight on Friday evening from ORD to DCA. I have been a reader of this forum for a long time but seeing this all over the news made me sign up so I could tell you what really happened here and hopefully stop this liar in her tracks. I was sitting close enough to her to hear everything that was said. The flight attendant came up to the lady (I believe she even took her order first in the entire cabin as she was seated in the bulkhead 7d) and took her order. She ordered a coke zero and a hot green tea with a Splenda. The flight attendant handed her a full diet coke with a cup on top and then told her that the green tea would take a few minutes and she would get it to her ASAP. The lady said very rudely and condescending to the FA that she ordered a coke zero and basically pushed the soda back to the flight attendant. The FA said she was sorry and attempted to find a coke zero for her (which she did not have many of) and told her that she could only give her a portion of the can not the full can. This is when the lady in question started to freak out and told the FA "What do you think I will use this as a weapon?! Why can't I have the whole can? I think you are discriminating against me. I need your name...." The lady just kept yelling to her "I need your name... I am being discriminated against." This is when a few passengers told her to calm down and one guy told her to "shut her mouth and she is being ridiculous over a can of coke". No one ever said anything anti-Muslim to her at all. She was the one who started screaming discrimination when she did not get what she wanted. The FA asked her numerous times if she would like anything else when the lady just basically pushed her away with a hand in her face. The lady then got onto her phone with her credit card and paid for the internet so she could start spinning this story on social media and she was never in tears. This person is a liar plain and simple and is just pulling the discrimination card.
this forum is basically the forum where ppl goto to talk about flying and shit.

I'd noticed that too. I don't know what that means, but my bias leads me to think it means this situation wasn't as big a deal as she makes it out to be. All we have right now is her perspective and the company line, both of which are obviously going to be self-serving. I'd really like to hear from the other passengers.
remember this is a shuttle plane, where it's like a 30seater, with the single row to the left and the double row to the right so i'm sure the whole plane could hear a fake shit storm started by this goat fucker.
I wish the airline would release the flight attendant's side of the story. Would love nothing more than the post above to be the truth.
Airline releasing anything but an apology will never happen.
Disagreeing with the supposed "Victim" here will get the company branded as xenophbic at worst and covering their bigot employees at best.
They have no incentive to provide anything new on this incident to fuel any kind of further discussion even if they and the FA are fully in the right. They want this thing to die down and be forgotten ASAP.
I just flew Lufthansa yesterday (Europe route). I had 3 beers served to me, all in unopened cans.
Thankfully I didn't murder anyone with them!
Studies have shown that only diet coke drinkers are likely to be violent or cause incidents. Source: Pepsi and Budweiser.
Once I was told I couldn't use the headset I purchased from a previous flight while other flight attendants were ok with it. I felt discriminated against Or any of the other times service was bad...Which happens a lot heh

Not half, % 49. It would take three of her to complain about dirty apostates touching her coke can.
Itzena's a muslim girl. She's got that ISIS ball tattooed as her tramp stamp. It's the only plausible explanation.
Wonder if we will have to bail out the Brits yet again from this mess they're making.

Lady: "Yes i'd like an unopened can of Diet Coke for hygienic purposes please, ma'am."
Flight Attendant: "I'm sorry ma'am we're not allowed to serve cans without opening them."
Lady: "But... you served this man next to me an unopened can of beer. This can't be right unless you are discriminating against me because i'm a Muslim."
*flight attendant quickly opens the can of beer*
random passenger 5 rows down who couldn't even hear the polite conversation happens to turn around and catch a glimpse of the flight attendant talking with this lovely lady and his/her rage takes over as they suffer vivid flashbacks of 9/11 and they scream at the top of their lungs "YOU MUSLIM, YOU NEED TO SHUT THE FUCK UP."
Then, their rage dissipated through their words, they turn back around and finish the flight soothed by the gentle sobbing of the Islamic lady.
Seems about right to me.
