Delta 468 Delayed Because Orthodox Jewish Men Refuse To Sit Next Women On Flight
The women who were assigned to sit on either side of the men, also refused to move their seats and claimed discrimination according to the article. The article says that, “the stand-off was eventually resolved when an American travelling to Israel offered to change seats.”
