Delta Air Lines accused of discrimination after ‘refusing non-binary passenger’

Delta has promised to offer a gender-neutral marker on bookings after the airline was accused of “discriminating” against non-binary passengers.

Dawn Henry, a mother from Arizona, described the “ongoing saga” of her trying to buy a plane ticket as a Christmas present for her non-binary adult child in a lengthy thread of posts on Twitter.

As she went through the process, Henry discovered that Delta only issues tickets with male and female gender markers – and not tickets with a gender-neutral “X” marker.

As such, Henry alleged Delta was “discriminating” against non-binary people and “not allowing them to fly despite legal ID issued by states that allow X on birth certificates and state-issued IDs”.
