For their part, Delta released a statement about how they chose an edited version of the film to show in-flight, and that edited version means not only are there no sex scenes, but the kissing scene itself was ripped out, too:
"If we were worried about kissing we wouldn't be showing the film in the first place, but because there are scenes with more than a few seconds of nudity, we opted for the edited version instead of the theatrical version."
So the "edited" version censored all traces of lesbians?? Nice.
Phyllis Nagy, the screenwriter who was nominated for an Oscar for Carol, also points out that while some other airlines have chosen like Delta and opted for the edited version of the film, others have decided that the full, theatrical version suits their audiences the best.
