Alaska Airlines To Get Rid Of Prayer Cards

| Filed under: Business Blitz


Looks like you won't be having anything extra for your dinner on Alaska Airlines anymore.

The airline has stated it will remove its prayer cards from its flights starting February 1st.

Alaska Airlines has given the cards to passengers since the 70s.

They stopped giving them to coach passengers in 2006.

Alaska Air Group CEO Bill Ayer and Alaska Airlines President Brad Tilden said the following on the new policy:

Some of you enjoy the cards and associate them with our service. At the same time, we've heard from many of you who believe religion is inappropriate on an airplane

Some passengers believed the prayer cards inspired unnecessary fear.

Starbucks co-founder Gordon Bowker said the cards made him believe the flight crews thought "something bad was going to happen."

He stated "if they're worried, then I'm worried."

    I think this is good…..

    First, not everyone is religious. They can still have them for people that want them..
    But yeah, it gives a bad feeling sometime.

    I don't understand why all of the rights of the non Christians are more important than that of Christians.. If you don't like the prayer cards then simply don't look at them. If they give someone else peace of mind then LET them have the right to get them..

    Religious nuts are always trying to force their superstitions on others.

    I agree 100% with Gordon Bowker! Here are your prayer cards in case you need them, in case we crash, which we might… Gotta be prepared… just in case the worst happens. No, that is not a good vibe for an airline, regardless what religion a person might be.

    What in the world is going on with the wing of that plane? It looks like somebody got drunk and tried to photoshop it.
