An American Airlines passenger was escorted off the plane at La Guardia (LGA) this morning for getting agitated because crew members repeatedly wished him ‘Merry Christmas’. I know not everyone celebrates Christmas, but really?
Personally I am sick of all this ‘PC’ business. Everyone should have the right to wish someone else Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukah, or other festive greetings for other festivals. Given Christmas is the predominant holiday being celebrated around the world at this time of the year, why can’t the crew say ‘Merry Christmas’. Unfortunately, the passenger will probably get a ‘Very Merry Christmas’ payout by suing American Airlines for this and settling out of court.
(Full Disclosure – I am not a Christian. But I have a Christmas tree in my house, and yes we exchanged gifts this morning. You can wish me ‘Merry Christmas’, ‘Happy Hanukah’, ‘Eid Mubarak’, ‘Happy Diwali’ or ‘May the Force be with you’, anytime).
