Newlyweds kicked off on a Jetstar flight minutes before departure claim, along with 20 of their guests, that they were targeted because they are Muslims.
Sarah Aslan, 23, married her long-term partner Muhammed in Bali at the end of last month in what they called a perfect marriage surrounded by close friends and family.
But the flight home consisted of nightmares. The 22-person group was escorted from an airplane by 15 guards and dumped at Denpasar Airport at 02:00 last Monday.
The confrontation began when one of the members of the group, Mike Mahmoud, disagreed with the staff about an error with the entertainment during the flight.
& # 39; Is it the beard? & # 39 ;, Mr. Mahmoud asked the flight attendant in footage obtained by Nine News. & # 39; It feels like it is. & # 39;
Other passengers, panting, heard Mr Mahmoud's comment, but he and others in the group insisted that it was justified.
& # 39; I really don't believe I was arrogant, I just wanted to go home, & # 39; said Mr. Mahmoud.

The group continued to argue with the airline's staff as soon as the plane was escorted, which eventually left the asphalt at 2 am
& # 39; I have done nothing. I don't want you to talk to me like that, do you understand ?, & heard Mrs. Aslan say in a video.
& # 39; Where is the lady who started this? This is very racist. & # 39;
Mrs. Aslan doubled her comments in an interview with Nine News.

& # 39; Personally it felt like we were being attacked because we looked ethnic and were Muslims, & # 39; said Mrs. Aslan.
& # 39; That's why I started crying. I like that, I just want to go home, I am not here anymore. & # 39;
The group managed to secure a flight back to Melbourne 24 hours later, at no extra cost.
Selim Tutunca, one of the family members escorted the plane, said he didn't know why they were targeted.
& # 39; We were racially, verbally and physically attacked by both Jetstar crew members and airport officials in Bali. We have images of all of this & # 39 ;, he wrote on the Facebook page of Jetstar Australia.

& # 39; We were kicked out, although we had not spoken to the crew members yet. & # 39;
Mr. Tutunca said that he and his young family, including a seven and a three year old, were stranded in Bali with nowhere to sleep.
& # 39; We have waited more than four hours and my children are sleeping on benches at the airport, & # 39; he said.
Mrs. Aslan (pictured with husband Muhammed) claimed that she and their 20 guests were removed from the flight because they looked & # 39; ethnic looking & # 39;
& # 39; We were not accommodated at Jetstar at all. We tried to talk to them and they didn't want to know anything about us.
& # 39; I'm stuck here at Bali at the airport without accommodation with all my luggage and sleeping children to comfort while being told to get out. & # 39;
Mr. Tutunca claimed that one of his friends had an asthma attack on the plane and that the trial meant that his children were brought to hell & # 39 ;.
Although the wedding ring insisted that they were treated unfairly by Jetstar, a number of passengers on board the aircraft claimed that they were disturbing.

The plane rushed to the runway when the group showed signs of & # 39; aggression & # 39; began to show, a woman said.
& # 39; This was not tolerated at all by cabin crew and the pilot brought us back to where we boarded the aircraft … he said we waited for security to remove the family, & # 39; she said.
The passenger said the family finally agreed to sit down from their seats, but laughed as they walked out of the plane surrounded by safety.
& # 39; One young man screamed and said: & # 39; you are Jetstar & # 39 ;, she said.

Jetstar told Daily Mail Australia that they were investigating the incident, but disputed the family's claims.
& # 39; The safety of our customers and crew is our first priority and we do not tolerate any kind of disruptive or offensive behavior & # 39 ;, said a spokesperson.
& # 39; We take these allegations very seriously and investigate the matter, but our crew disputes the claims of these passengers. & # 39;
It is understood that the airline is browsing through CCTV recordings to determine what led to the incident.
Daily Mail Australia has contacted Ms Aslan and Jetstar for further comments.
