After the announcements, as I was drifting off into dreamland, we stalled and halted on the runway. "Oh no," I thought to myself as I anticipated a delay of some sort. "Ladies and gentleman, please pause for a moment of silence as we conduct a prayer for safety." My ears perked up and my eyes widened as I heard the familiar Arabic dialect projected in an ominous tone on the loudspeakers. I glanced around to see if anyone was as shocked as I was to hear a prayer...ON AN AIR-PLANE! I seemed to be the only one fazed by this experience and I thought to myself, "Only on Air Arabia!"
This would never happen in the states. I was able to grab my camera to record the second half of the prayer.
