Trump Supporter Gets Lifetime Ban on Delta After Yelling About ‘Hillary Bitches’ Mid-Flight

Trump supporters taunts passengers on a Delta flight

A Delta passenger expresses his “economic anxiety” by yelling about “Hillary bitches” on his Allentown-bound flight
Passengers on a Delta flight headed to Allentown, Pennsylvania were pestered by man who loudly proclaimed his support for Donald Trump and asked if “we’ve got any Hillary bitches on here?” The video went viral after a passenger shared the video, upset that the flight crew did nothing to subdue this man. After a weekend of Delta customers lashing out on social media, Delta CEO Ed Bastian has responded saying they will permanently ban the man from Delta Airlines:

As you may have heard by now, last week a video began circulating around the internet showing a disruptive passenger on board a Delta flight. This individual displayed behavior that was loud, rude and disrespectful to his fellow customers. After questioning the customer, our team members made the best decision they could given the information they had and allowed him to remain on the flight. However, if our colleagues had witnessed firsthand what was shown in the video, there is no question they would have removed him from the aircraft. He will never again be allowed on a Delta plane.

In addition, they are offering a full refund to the other passengers on the flight. That’s great, but they still appear to be in denial about what went down, saying the flight crew didn’t see this man’s actions firsthand. As you can see in the video below, it’s hard to believe the flight crew didn’t witness man’s behavior:

Here is the full statement from Delta CEO Ed Bastian: 

Internal Memo

Date:     November 28, 2016

To:         Delta Colleagues Worldwide

From:    Ed Bastian

Subject: Disruptive Passenger on DL248

Thank you for the amazing job you did running our operation and taking care of our customers during the busy Thanksgiving holiday. At Delta, we strive to deliver a safe and reliable product while providing a customer experience that is second to none. You come to work every day prepared to serve our customers and to take care of each other while also dealing with the unexpected.

As you may have heard by now, last week a video began circulating around the internet showing a disruptive passenger on board a Delta flight. This individual displayed behavior that was loud, rude and disrespectful to his fellow customers. After questioning the customer, our team members made the best decision they could given the information they had and allowed him to remain on the flight. However, if our colleagues had witnessed firsthand what was shown in the video, there is no question they would have removed him from the aircraft. He will never again be allowed on a Delta plane.

Part of being a reliable travel partner and a servant leader is acknowledging our mistakes so we can learn from them and respond more effectively in the future. Delta has apologized to the customers onboard that flight. We are also refunding those customers the cost of their tickets.

I also want to make sure all of you know we have your backs. The heightened tension in our society means that now more than ever we must require civility on our planes and in our facilities. We must stay true to Delta’s core values and treat one another with dignity and respect. We also must remain committed more than ever to the safety of our customers and our crew members. We will not tolerate anything less.

Again, thank you for all you do.

Ed
