Delta flight attendants purportedly gave disinfecting wipes to some passengers — but not others.

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.

Ms. McDonough says her “mother isn’t prone to exaggeration or lying.” Another user suggested perhaps the exchange was an attempt at (dark) humor.

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)

India Suspending All Domestic and International Flights

India’s News 18 reports that country’s Ministry of Civil Aviation announced airlines must suspend all operations as of 12:00 AM on March 25 through March 31.

  1. This is Karen complaining. Bring your own wipes like everyone else. People need to start taking responsibility for their own health and not just leave it up to someone else.
