US Airways can’t seem to get out of their own way as of late. Earlier this year US Airways had the incident over the linked photo of a model airplane inserted into a lady’s vagina. If one PR disaster wasn’t enough for the calendar year, the company kept the ball rolling with their incident this week with Sergeant Albert Marle. The well decorated soldier asked a flight attendant if she could hang up his ‘dress blues’ uniform in the closet. The flight attendant refused, stating the closet was reserved for first-class passengers and Marle was seated in coach. Upon hearing the shocking statement made by the attendant, many in first class offered Marle their seat but he declined. Catch the video recap of the incident below:
Once the incident hit social media, US Airways sprung into action to address the issue. “We apologize for the situation and are reviewing the incident internally.” said US Airways “We have a long and proud history of serving our military members and hold the men and women who serve our country in the highest regard.”
Lets hope next time US Airways finds it in their heart to hang the jacket of a Army Ranger regardless of company policy.
