WTSP news reports an incident aboard a United Airlines flight to Tampa resulted in nine foreign born passengers being removed from the airplane and several passengers left shaken up after witnessing the incident. According to the article, several thought the incident was serious enough that they asked to be booked on another flight.
One passenger is reported to have said the nine men were seated throughout the airplane. He was told the men were of Pakistani decent and one man made a comment that apparently was inappropriate and made a flight attendant feel uncomfortable.
The article goes on to say the men were later re-booked on another United flight when it was determined they were not a threat.
