Southwest Airlines’ Apology to L-word Actress
Southwest Airlines Newsroom: Releases… says
Initial reports indicate that we received several passenger complaints characterizing the behavior as excessive. Our crew, responsible for the comfort of all Customers on board, approached the passengers based solely on behavior and not gender. The conversation escalated to a level that was better resolved on the ground, as opposed to in flight. We regret any circumstance where a passenger does not have a positive experience on Southwest and we are ready to work directly with the passengers involved to offer our heartfelt apologies for falling short of their expectation.
Today, Actress & Musician Leisha Hailey less than 13 hours ago from press time, launched a campaign for LGBTs to Boycott Southwest Airlines. She notes in her various twitter posts that she was asked by airline staff to not kiss her partner on the plane, that Southwest Airlines is a “Family” airline, and was eventually escorted off the plane to resolve her issue. Read the tweet posts in reverse chronological order here ( I captured tweet timeline from her twitter page )
We hope to be able to post more as this story unfolds.
