Delta Air Lines: Bah!

– Wiccapundit

Frequent readers of this little blog know that I am an airplane nut.  Ever since I was a kid, I have loved everything aviation-related.  Even as an adult flying commercial, I would waffle over taking the aisle seat for comfort, or the window seat so I could stare out the window.  It has taken the particular genius combination of airline stupidity (charge for checked bags and everything else they can suck out of you) and government unpleasantness (TSA stands for “They Suck Ass”) to make someone who loves to fly HATE to get on an airplane.

Add this one to the long-as-my-Johnson list of reasons I won’t set foot on a commercial flight, particularly not one of Delta’s:

Delta Partners With Saudi Arabian Airlines; Jews Now Can’t Fly

Jews and Israelis, or passengers carrying any non-Islamic article of faith, will not be able to fly Delta Air Lines flights from the U.S. to Saudi Arabia under Delta’s new partnership with Saudi Arabian Airlines. (emphasis added)

I suppose that a witch wearing a pentagram and flying on Delta to Saudi Arabia would be right out.  Like I’d ever be caught dead entering a backwards, barbaric, Stone Age sandpit like that.

Or like I’d be caught dead EVER taking another flight on Delta.

  1. I don’t like it, but they are a private entity, aren’t they? Like Google censoring stuff coming out of China? Not ethical, but legal.

      Legal? Certainly. Commercially smart? Nope. Delta has the absolute right to do this, just as I have the absolute right to take my business elsewhere. Delta’s service has been in a long decline anyway. Fortunately, there are alternatives.

      Just as a private business can prohibit concealed carry on its property, and I can patronize another business that doesn’t.

      As a follow-up, I have seen info that the source of the original article is waffling on what the actual underlying facts are, but nonethless, Delta’s PR flacks put out a press release that seems to confirm the story.

      • Agreed. It wasn’t smart at all. Akin to shooting yourself in the foot because you have athlete’s foot . Being in the military, it irks Hubby every time he has to fly Delta. Several times he has shelled out his own money to go with another carrier. Seems Delta is pleased enough to take the Army’s money, but can’t be bothered to be cordial to the uniform.
