“Instruction to work crews to choose a greeting that includes all passengers,” he said, adding that the word “dear guests” or “good morning / good evening” will be used.
The new policy will be introduced gradually at both the German airline Lufthansa, as well as in Switzerland, Austria, Brussels and Eurowings.
The company said so It is a response to the “rightly held discussion in society” about the gender identity of non-binary people and the desire to “appreciate all guests on board”.
