He wrote on Facebook that the experience was “unbelievable” and made him laugh.
The University of Pennsylvania associate professor boarded the Philadelphia-Syracuse flight on Thursday on his way to Ontario, where he was due to give a lecture.
Before the flight took off, the woman sitting next to him passed a note to a member of the cabin crew.
She initially told them she was feeling unwell but then voiced her suspicions about Mr Menzio’s scribblings.
He wrote: “It’s a bit funny. It’s a bit worrisome.
“The lady just looked at me, looked at my writing of mysterious formulae, and concluded I was up to no good.
“Because of that an entire flight was delayed.”
He told Associated Press that the crew should have run additional checks before delaying take-off.
He said: “Not seeking additional information after reports of ‘suspicious activity’ is going to create a lot of problems, especially as xenophobic attitudes may be emerging.”
American Airlines, whose regional partner Air Wisconsin was operating the flight in question, said the crew followed protocol to take care of an ill passenger and then to investigate her allegations. It was established that they were not credible.
The Debate – Deepening Division (5.5.2016) “I feel no reproach, anger or resentment against anyone. No-one heard, or will ever hear, a single word from my mouth, from my tongue or my mind against our president.” Those may be the words of Turkish Prime Minister Davutoglu, but President Erdogan pushing him aside is evidence of deepening division that exist between them. Speculation abounds as to which policies became the nail in Davutoglu’s coffin. Could it be Turkey’s policy of “zero problems with neighbors” morphing into the opposite? Could it be the EU-Turkey refugee deal? Or the growing powers of president vis-à-vis those of the prime minister that have been curtailed. The list is endless, but one thing is certain: This “palace coup” as dubbed by an opposition leader, will strengthen Erdogan’s hand. That & more in this debate.
