Nyle DiMarco went to Twitter to let American Airlines know that he was wondering why their in-flight entertainment still doesn’t have subtitles? The response he got surprised him and now Twitter is showing support for Nyle DiMarco and Twitter is starting to troll American Airlines for not having 100% accessibility for all on their flights.
.@AmericanAir, your movies did not have subtitles for me as a Deaf person.— Nyle DiMarco (@NyleDiMarco) November 24, 2015
It is 2015.
When are you going to be 100% accessible for all?
@NyleDiMarco Currently we do not show closed-captioned TV viewing as a standard feature.— American Airlines (@AmericanAir) November 24, 2015
@NyleDiMarco The fact that close-captioned writing on small screens may cover the monitors.— American Airlines (@AmericanAir) November 24, 2015
@NyleDiMarco We have a limited number of close captioned movies for customers with a hearing disability.— American Airlines (@AmericanAir) November 24, 2015
