I was in 1st class coming home. 11 Muslim men got on the plane in full attire. 2 sat in 1st
class and the rest peppered themselves throughout the plane all the way to the back. As the plan taxied to the runway the stewardesses gave the safety spiel we are all so familiar with. At that time, one of the men got on his cell and called one of his companions in the back and proceeded to talk on the phone in Arabic very loudly and very aggressively. This took the 1st stewardess out of the picture for she repeatedly told the man that cell phones were not permitted at the time. He ignored her as if she was not there.
Apparently all 11 of these cretins were removed from the aircraft and then 10 of them were allowed BACK onto the plane by AirTran officials. That caused a dozen other passengers to vamoose from the flight.
