And then the passenger was thrown off the plane.

According to the Independent, Mohamed Ahmed Radwan was greeted with an ominous message as he boarded a plane in Charlotte, North Carolina in December 2015: a flight attendant grabbed the plane’s public address system and announced “Mohamed Ahmed, Seat 25-A: I will be watching you.”


As Radwan stored his belongings, the flight attendant reportedly made the same announcement two more times, saying, “Mohamed Ahmed, that is a very long name, seat 25-A: I will be watching you,” and “25-A: you will be watched.”

When Radwan asked the attendant later why she did not make the same announcement about other passengers, she reportedly accused him of being “too sensitive.” Two other American Airlines employees then approached him to inquire about the incident, after which Radwan was promptly escorted off the plane. The listed reason: he made the flight attendant “uncomfortable.”
