A WOMAN on a United Airlines flight was allegedly made to move seats as two Pakistani men could not sit next to her.
Mary Campos was boarding a flight from California to Houston when she said she was told her pre-booked seat had been changed.
The explanation was because she had been booked into a seat next to two passengers whose cultural beliefs meant they were unable to sit next to a woman.
She says she was also told that the men were unable to be served by female staff.
Although she was shocked, she said she had no choice but to take the new seat.
The men were described by Ms Campos as “Pakistani monks” who were wearing long orange shirts.

This is a situation where the airline being way to much to accommodate these passengers, they should have told the passengers to sit down net to the women and be served by women or get off the plane. I can understand that such practices are normal on PIA flights as its there national airline, their right and all, but this a US airline in the US so they should understand that in North-America we do things differently. As much as I would respect their religions and beliefs if I visited their country, I expect the same from them.
