Airline Charges Heterosexuals More for Tickets

So many things wrong with this story I cannot even begin to list them all.

Alaska Airlines and Horizon Air have announced a new program that will charge heterosexuals 10 percent extra for their air travel to specific locations during the Christmas season.

The company actually offers the 10 percent as a discount but only if the purchaser obtains the ticket through a “gay” page of the company’s website, a location not typically patronized by families seeking travel arrangements, according to an Idaho activist who was distressed by the offering.

Bryan Fischer, of the Idaho Values Alliance, told WND the company boasts of its “nondiscrimination” policies, but, “here they are blatantly discriminating against heterosexuals in their pricing structure.”

Word of the discount came through an airline employee, who needed to remain anonymous because of concerns over retaliation. The employee reported the company had sent e-mails out announcing the “very soft launch” of the new promotion.

“They are giving preferences to male passengers who want to wear dresses on the planes, and giving them preference over married couples,” Fischer said, noting families typically buy more tickets than individuals or pairs traveling together.

    In the last paragraph of the post:

    I noticed that they were catering to cross-dressers instead of families. Pretty ignorant, huh?

  4. Steve: I know that. I’m saying, where did the guy being quoted there get that about dresses? I don’t see anything about that in the rest of the article or in the original article.

  5. Sorry, I meant “or in the original advertisement”.
