A Delta Air Lines flight from Atlanta to Newark was diverted to Charlotte, N.C., on Sunday after passengers complained of two “Middle Eastern” men who were huddled in the back of the plane speaking a language other than English. After the plane landed in Charlotte, investigators found that the two were Orthodox Jews who were saying prayers during the flight.
