Better to use one of these terms instead: Shomer Shabbos, G-d Fearing. Torah Observant. Etc.

I didn't realize that there was a problem with the term "ultra-orthodox". I know that here most of the writers are Jewish but I don't think that "shomer Shabbat, Torah Observant, etc." will work when conversing with non-Jewish people. Also those terms can refer to people that are more modern religious Jews that don't make an issue of such a situation.

and as it turns out, the delay on the recent El-Al flight was not reported accurately, the delay had nothing to do with seating requests by Jews:

Sivan Rahav-Meir reports that she forwarded these claims to El Al, but received the following surprising response: “The details reported on the subject were inaccurate to say the least. In reality, the delay was not related to the event that was publicized. There was a delay in the move of the plane to the takeoff runway of an hour without any connection to the incident.
“The two passengers who refused to take their seats took place after the plane had already departed from the gate, and it lasted only a few minutes,” thereby corroborating the testimony of Mr. Shemtov.
