Shame on Southwest Airlines.Posted: September 26, 2011
Shame on Southwest airlines.
My email to Southwest. Feel free to copy and send to them as well:
You kicked a woman off of a flight for kissing her partner? What the hell is wrong with Southwest? “A flight attendant had told Hailey that Southwest “was a ‘family’ airline and kissing was not ok”, and that she and her companion were then “escorted off the plane for getting upset about the issue.”
So…that means I will NEVER, EVER see men and women kissing because “kissing is not ok?”
I am a published author and let me tell you, I will post this and ask my readers, my publisher, my editors and those who read my blog that folks should boycott your homophobic, small-minded, small airline until you verify that ALL OF YOUR STAFF undergo “humanity” training. “Sensitivity” would be asking for too much.
Get out of the dark ages, Southwest. Oh, and here’s news for your idiot flight attendant. I’m guessing that a full 3/4’s of her “crew” colleagues, past and present, have been extraordinarily gay.
Suck on that, grow up, and move on.
Shame, shame, shame on you.
For the news article quoted above, go here.
So…you have your marching orders. Boycott a seriously homophobic airline.
If I get a response or learn anything new, I will update it.
