Report: Delta Flight Attendants Held Disinfectant Wipes from Some Passengers
A woman on Twitter says Delta flight attendants refused to give disinfecting wipes to “economy class” passengers on her mother’s Saturday night flight from MSP to Winnipeg.
My 68 year old mother was on a flight last night trying to get home to Canada; they were passing out disinfectant wipes until they got to the last 7 rows. When passengers asked if they too could have some they were told “THE WIPES ARE NOT FOR ECONOMY CLASS” shame on you @Delta

As for this “last (seven) rows” and “economy class” business, the only thing I can think is that maybe there was some Basic Economy passenger shaming taking place? (H/T: Idaho Reporter)
