A disgruntled Facebook user left a comment on the Argentina Airlines Facebook page saying: “What gets my attention is the low quality of flight attendants that the company has. Before they were tall, nice, now they only take short fat girls.”
A lesson right there in how to be a douche.
His statement didn’t go unnoticed and Argentina Airlines’ Facebook page responded, writing that “prejudice doesn’t fly, we leave it on the ground.”
A very classy response.
The airline then went as far as listing the only requirements they have in place for their flight attendants:
– Older than 18
– Height: For women, between 5’4” and 5’7” -For men, between 5’7” and 6’1”
– Argentine citizen
– High school graduate
– TCP license
– Command of English
– Know how to swim
Argentine social media praised the smooth handling of the situation. This guy summed it up.
“Act quickly+be polite+don’t allow racism= Epic win! Good action from Aerolineas Argentinas!”
A flight attendant who works for the airline even tweeted a selfie with the hashtag #PrejudiceDoesntFly.
Well played Argentina Airlines.
