I am a member of the Jewish community, deeply disturbed by the recent actions of certain Qantas cabin crew members who chose to wear Palestinian badges while on duty.

This act has not only politicised a neutral space but also affected many passengers like me who believe in keeping politics separate from services like air travel. Qantas, as one of the world’s leading airlines, should uphold its responsibility to provide an unbiased and comfortable environment for all its passengers. It is inappropriate for employees to display political affiliations while serving customers from diverse backgrounds and beliefs. According to a Pew Research Center study, 64% of people believe that corporations should not take political stances (Pew Research Center, 2018). This incident clearly goes against public sentiment and infringes upon our right as consumers to enjoy a service free from political bias. We urge Qantas management to take immediate action by dismissing these crew members who have violated professional boundaries. By doing so, they will send a clear message that such behavior is unacceptable within their organization and ensure that future flights are free from unnecessary controversy or discomfort. Please sign this petition if you agree with us that politics has no place in customer service industries like air travel.
Kind Regards,
Noah Fleiszig
