Haredi passenger riots on El Al flight over ‘immodest’ movie

(JTA) – A haredi Orthodox man rioted on an El Al flight home from Poland after complaining that the in-flight movie was “immodest.”

The passenger, 36, from Beit Shemesh, damaged two viewing screens and attacked the cabin crew during his rampage on Wednesday, the Hebrew-language news website Walla reported.

Police, who were waiting for the man when the plane landed, took him into custody to question him, according to Walla.

El Al told Walla that the company “is not prepared to accept violent behaviour of any kind during flights.”
