Delta Accidentally Gives Passenger "H8GAYS" Confirmation Code

Delta's confirmation code-generating algorithm took a cue from Westboro Baptist Church's picket signs apparently. Jeff White, an IT student from Florida received a boarding pass along with a double-take worthy "H8GAYS" confirmation code. 

It wasn't exactly a laughing matter for White, however, who worried that bystanders might think he picked the message himself. "At first I didn’t think I read it right,” he said. “I was worried that another customer might think I somehow picked that code. If I were a gay male, I might have thought that a Delta worker purposely gave me that code, and that would have made me extremely uncomfortable.”

After uploading a scan of the pass to the social Internet, Delta apologized and reminded folks that the codes are generated randomly. 

“These confirmation codes are computer-generated and are completely random,” says Russell Cason, a Delta spokesman. “We will make every effort to ensure that a similar combination does not occur in the future.”

That computer randoms pick code itself to take all words and number somehow popped it up itself. It has nothing to do with gay!  LOL!   A fat lady traveled to Fresno, CA  She went to the Baggage claim area and she saw her bag but the airline put tag airport code Fresno is "FAT" she got mad and angry with airline walked to the airline desk. Why do you called me FAT on my bag?  Airline was apologized  no, actually It is airport code Fresno for FAT like SFO San Francisco.   It doesn't meant to her fat!  LOL!  I laughed so hard  people confused and not aware of this meaning.    LOL! 

Considering that the DMV has guarded against random messages on license plates for years, this should be a no-brainer.

Yeah right!!!!!!!!   Nice try to CYA.
