Delta Airlines has listened to customer feedback and banned the passenger who disrupted a flight by yelling pro-Trump statements and calling other passengers ‘Hillary b*tches.’
The lifetime ban on the passenger comes after the airline issued a formal apology.
“This individual displayed behavior that was loud, rude and disrespectful to his fellow customers,” Delta Chief Executive Officer Ed Bastian said in a letter to employees. “He will never again be allowed on a Delta plane.”
The man on Flight 248 from Atlanta to Allentown, Pennsylvania, shouted and clapped “Donald Trump, baby,” before telling his fellow passengers “He’s your president” and “If you don’t like it, too bad.” He also swore at them, according to a video that drew widespread attention on social media.
Delta publicly apologized Saturday for the incident and said the passenger should have been removed from the flight.
Good. Check out the internal memo issued to employees by Delta CEO Ed Bastian below.
