A Southwest Airlines flight attendant who shared a picture of a passenger wearing a “Trump 45” T-shirt has come under fire for saying they didn’t give the passenger their best service, USA Today reports.
An unnamed flight attendant posted on Facebook a photo of a man, later identified as Mark Kaminski, who was wearing shorts, a camouflage-pattern hat and a blue T-shirt with the American flag and the phrases, “Trump 45” and “Suck it up Buttercup,” seated on a Southwest flight.
The flight attendant added the caption: "Someone did NOT get my most Positively Outrageous Service,” a reference to Southwest’s customer service motto, “today on my flight ... #notgoingtosuckitup #dumpTrump #eeew.''
Kaminski was sent the post by a friend and wrote about it on Southwest’s Facebook page.
"So this is how they treat passengers?'' He asked, blasting the flight attendant for not "giving his best to a customer because he hates the man's shirt and our president."
Kaminski added, "He should be fired because he can't do his job. Very sad employee.''
A Southwest representative responded, "We aim to provide outstanding service to all who travel with us and regret if we missed the mark. We appreciate you sharing your feedback.''
A spokesperson for the airline, Chris Mainz, told USA Today that the company removed the Facebook post “as we investigate and address the issue internally.”
"We aim to provide outstanding service to all who travel with us,'' he added, in a statement. "The post in question does not reflect the inclusive environment we strive to provide for our customers and employees."
