After all of the craziness that took place at the capitol yesterday, Flight Attendant Unions are calling for Trump Supporters to be banned from flights departing Washington DC.
The Union responsible, Association of Flight Attendants-CWA, is responsible for 17 airlines. This includes United, Spirit, and Alaska Airlines. Their reasoning? ‘Mob-Mentality’ behavior or the airplanes leading up to the event.
Sara Nelson, President of the Union, had the following to say in a statement given Wednesday evening: “Their violent and seditious actions at the Capitol today create further concern about their departure from the D.C. area. Acts against our democracy, our government and the freedom we claim as Americans must disqualify these individuals from the freedom of flight,” Nelson said.
Do these people not realize that half the country voted for Trump, and have been using Airplanes since his election in 2016? For goodness sake, the people have a problem with THE GOVERNMENT, not with airlines.
You people are desperate for money anyway, your entire sector has tanked due to COVID-19. Do you really think dissing half of your customer base is going to help you out? Give me a break.
