Altakrouri said that at first, she didn’t think anything of it when she asked a flight attendant if they could sit there and was told no.

“As I was walking, I overheard her saying to the passengers in the seats that were around that area, laughing, saying that ‘If we sat her there, she’d bring down the plane in an emergency,” said Altakrouri, who wears a hijab. “You can imagine the shock I was in at that time.”
