Passengers onboard Air Canada flights will no longer hear the greeting “ladies and gentlemen” with the airline announcing a more gender-neutral approach.
According to Business Insider, Air Canada is changing its onboard announcement referring to passengers as “everybody” in an effort to include all genders.

In an internal memo obtained by La Presse news site, the company stated, “The change will be reflected in the transmission of the Onboard Announcement Manual as part of our commitment to respect sexual identity, diversity, and inclusion.”

Business Insider reports Air Canada passengers will be addressed as “everybody” or ” tout le monde” instead of “ladies and gentlemen” or “mesdames et messieurs.”
