In the latest attempt to not “offend” anyone, Delta ended up ticking off a whole host of their customer base when they decided to stop referring to passengers as ‘ladies and gentleman.’
Apparently in today’s flying world, greeting passengers with the customary “ladies and gentleman” is now “offensive.”
So, not wanting to “upset” anyone, Delta will enter a new phase and now refer to passengers by using broad terms like “everyone” in order to be more “inclusive”.
Paddle Your Own Kanoo reported:
“Delta flight attendants greet our customers with gender-neutral language through our on board announcements. Promoting inclusion throughout the travel journey is core to creating a safe, comfortable and respectful space for all of our customers and employees.”
Tell that to the ex-Navy SEAL who took down terrorist Bin Laden, but is now banned from Delta because he took of his mask to post a selfie.
Or the passengers who are forced to deal with the lady and her “emotional therapy” animal stinking up the entire plane and making the flight miserable for everyone.
I betcha those folks didn’t have a “comfortable” journey.
Even more insulting, all of these new “gender neutral” changes are likely because of a few select people.
Liberals are always whining about something…
… from expecting you to actually quit your job before choosing to fly for work, to attempting to police what type of mask you wear.
The truth is, Americans are sick and tired of having “political correctness” shoved down their throats.
But instead of ignoring the latest cry from liberals on what isn’t “fair,” more and more businesses are cowering to their demands.
And now Delta, one of the last decent airlines left, decides to irritate the majority of their passengers just to appease a few.
What’s next? Instead of “gender neutral” greetings, airlines will refer to passengers by their “preferred pronoun”?
Wouldn’t surprise me.
After all, United Airlines has already given passengers who “don’t identify” as male or female to select alternate options when booking their flight – like “X” for unspecified or “U” for “undisclosed.”
Yes, the world has truly gone mad.
And oh, the irony.
Airline officials are more concerned with taking a teenager’s water bottle in the name of “national security” or threatening to deny a federal air marshal with an American flag mask to board because it might “offend” other passengers…
… yet somehow it’s okay for people to refuse to select a gender while flying if they don’t want to?
Seems a bit out of touch.
But, in the era of the “new normal” it seems anything goes.
Ladies and gentlemen… the world truly has gone mad.
