EasyJet Airlines refuses dividing passengers into men and women

EasyJet Airlines, The Great Britain has refused to divide passengers into men and women during a greeting or a call on board, according to the Daily Mail.

In order not to hurt the feelings of representatives of minorities, instead of the phrase “ladies and gentlemen” the crew will say: “welcome everyone.” This decision arose after the complaint of one of the clients of this low-cost airline, transgender university professor Dr. Andy Fugard.

“Dear @easyjet, are you participating in some kind of competition where you need to show how you support the gender binary system?” Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls. “Spirits are again strictly divided into” male and female “,” Fugard said on Twitter.

Employees of the airline expressed their regret in response to a message from the client and promised to deal with the problem. As a result, staff received new instructions suggesting that the phrase “ladies and gentlemen” be no longer used during flights.

In February, US airlines promised to give passengers who do not recognize themselves as either men or women the opportunity not to choose one of these two options when booking tickets. So, American, Delta, United, Southwest, Alaska and JetBlue changed the process of air ticketing, and in the column “gender” travelers will be able to choose “not defined” or “not specified”.
