We take full responsibility for getting verbally upset with the flight attendant after being told it was a 'family airline.'"We were never told the reason the flight attendant approached us, we were only scolded that we 'needed to be aware that Southwest Airlines was a family oriented airline.' No matter how quietly homophobia is whispered, it doesn't make it any less loud. We ask this airline to teach their employees to not discriminate against any couple, ever, regardless of their own beliefs.
