Air Canada replaces gendered terms in scripted greetings with gender neutral words


In the near future, flight attendants at Air Canada will no longer greet passengers with “Ladies and Gentlemen” or “Mesdames et messieurs”. Gender terms in boarding and welcome announcements will be replaced with gender neutral terms like “everybody” or “tout le monde”. 

We will be amending our onboard announcements to modernize them and remove specific references to gender,” a media spokesperson for the company said in an email to CTN News Montreal. “We work hard to make sure all employees feel like valued members of the Air Canada family, while ensuring our customers are comfortable and respected when they choose to travel with us.”
