EasyJet bosses’ ‘terrible’ decision to stop using the phrase ‘ladies and gentlemen’ after one Twitter complaint has seen the airline ridiculed and warned: ‘Get woke, go broke!’

People mocked the budget airline firm, saying that it’s attempt to keep up with social justice trends would result in financial ruin. 

Social media user BiggJim wrote: ‘Give me a break! You can’t say “ladies and gentlemen”?! Get #woke, go broke! Have you learned nothing from what happened to @Gillette? They lost billions trying to cater to one per cent of the population. Go for it. You’re seriously trying to appease people like this??’ 

The budget airline easyJet will reportedly no longer use the greeting ‘ladies and gentleman’

Some social media users took to Twitter to share their opinion of the reported move by the airline

The budget airline will instead use the greeting ‘welcome everyone’ to make their organisation more inclusive, The Sun reports. 

The move by easyJet bosses was sparked by a tweet back in the summer by trans university lecturer Dr Andi Fugard. 

Dr Fugard wrote: ‘Dear @easyjet, are you in some kind of competition to see how many times you can reinforce gender binaries? ‘Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls’, perfume strictly segregated again by ‘ladies and gentlemen’.

‘Ditch sir/madam too. An organisation as huge as yours must do better.’

The airline later replied to the tweet, writing: ‘At easyJet we discriminate against any individual-passengers or staff members. 

‘We are a pan-European airline with the aim of connecting people of all nationalities across Europe so there is certainly no room in our organisation for discrimination of any kind.’  

The budget airline later said in a tweet: ‘We don not discriminate against any individual-passengers or staff members’

Now they have issued guidelines to staff advising against using the term ‘ladies and gentlemen’.

The airline told The Sun that they were not banning the use of the term and had simple ‘guided’ staff away from the greeting. 

An easyJet spokesman told The Sun: ‘We want our crew to be welcoming to everyone onboard and so have provided some guidance to them of how to best do that in a way that is inclusive for everyone.’

  6. Thanks for your handy post. In recent times, I have come to be able to understand that the actual symptoms of mesothelioma cancer are caused by a build up of fluid between the lining of your lung and the upper body cavity. The condition may start inside the chest area and get distributed to other parts of the body. Other symptoms of pleural mesothelioma include fat loss, severe breathing in trouble, throwing up, difficulty eating, and irritation of the neck and face areas. It really should be noted that some people existing with the disease tend not to experience any serious indicators at all.
