Airlines have been facing a lot of flak for being rude to their passengers and been at the receiving end more often than not for it. A recent advertisement by Royal Jordanian Airlines is going viral for all the right reasons because it speaks against discrimination of passengers by fellow fliers and also the ‘fear of flying’ in the most unique way.

The viral facebook video is a first-person narrative of a flier that has a fear of flying but not really aviophobia but instead being discriminated for his appearance and subsequently the one to be blamed for an accident in the flight. The suspecting glances make it harder for the flier to have a normal journey but it also does not fail to highlight how we treat fellow travellers just because of stereotypes.

 

The video on the Royal Jordanian Airlines page now has over 2.2 million views with over 8,700 shares as people are really identifying with the advertisement.
