Actions have consequences.
Just days after Delta Airlines announced that it would end a discount program for National Rifle Association (NRA) members, a Friday report revealed that Delta Airlines gave up a $40 million tax break over a mere thirteen passengers.
Only 13 passengers had used their National Rifle Association membership to purchase tickets with Delta Airlines, a spokesperson for the Atlanta based company revealed reports.
“We are in the process of a review to end group discounts for any group of a politically divisive nature,” CEO Ed Bastian said in a note to employees.
“Our objective in removing any implied affiliation with the NRA was to remove Delta from this debate. Our decision was not made for economic gain and our values are not for sale. We are in the process of a review to end group discounts for any group of a politically divisive nature,” CEO Ed Bastain said in a statement.
It was Delta’s decision to ax this NRA perk that caused the Republican-led Georgia legislature to enact revenge by passing a bill that stripped Delta, and other airlines, of a proposed sales tax exemption worth about $40 million.
That’s the problem- Delta’s “decision” was not related to economic gain. Delta is a publically owned company. Your only responsibility (as long as we are still a “capitalist” country) is to make decisions that will cause stockholders to prosper — not to make politically correct statements!
