Snake on a plane: Former NBC producer rats out airline pilot for calling stewardesses “pretty”

July 12, 2016

From my latest blog post for the Independent Women’s Forum:

Hell hath no fury like a feminist journalist spotting a microaggression

Former NBC producer Betsy Fischer Martin was so freaked out by having to listen to a United Airlines pilot call the stewardesses “pretty” that she promptly alerted United via Twitter, presumably so that appropriate disciplinary steps could be taken:

“Really? @united pilot just directed passengers on PA to pay attention ‘to the pretty young ladies in the aisle’ for safety instructions.

So–will United fire the man, or just push him out of the plane at 30,000 feet?

Well, United is going to do something, because Fischer is such a big media cheese (she’s married to New York Times political reporter Jonathan Martin). Indeed, the airline promptly tweeted back:

“Betsy, please feel free to DM us more details including flight number. ^NC”

That’s nice: Punishing a pilot for complimenting the flight attendants.
