Q

Which is the next airline to ditch “Ladies and Gentlemen”?

-

A

Japan Airlines is swapping out “ladies and gentlemen” for gender-neutral greetings, following other global airlines to more inclusive language. The new forms of address will include “Attention all passengers” and “Good morning everyone.” Corporate support for LGBTQ+ rights is growing in socially conservati­ve Japan, where samesex marriage is illegal and being openly gay is taboo.
