The video has gone "viral", picking up over 250,000 RTs/likes.

Delta have responded saying:

Two customers were removed from this flight and later rebooked after a disturbance in the cabin resulted in more than 20 customers expressing their discomfort. We're conducting a full review to understand what transpired. We are taking allegations of discrimination very seriously; our culture requires treating others with respect.
Thoughts?

Exactly the kind of behaviour we have to deal with on a daily basis.

I feel as though there is more to this than him simply speaking Arabic to his friend.. that may not be the case, but I highly doubt a major airline would kick someone off a plane just for conversing in the 5th most spoken language in the world. Judging by his YouTube videos, he is attempting to evoke a reaction.

The way they were all casually saying bye just doesn't seem normal. Seems like an act to me he seeks attention all the time.

It's important for Arabic speakers to be aware of their surroundings and not to spout off in foreign languages which could cause concern. The onus is on them to conduct themselves in a manner which does not bring any attention on themselves

There was that guy who was questioned as well because he was of Middle Eastern descent and was doing algebra on the plane - people thought it was the Arabic script and that he was a terrorist. Perhaps it's not too crazy that a major airline kicked Adam Saleh off the plane for speaking Arabic.

ADAM Saleh, who describes himself as a “professional idiot”, made headlines this morning for claiming he squeezed into a tiny suitcase and illegally flew in the baggage hold from Melbourne to Sydney.

It was a "prank".

Similar incident happened a few years ago.

This scene did spring to my mind when this dilemma became talked about..
