“Dear @turkishairlines, like many other foreign companies, you might be discriminating against African destinations and travelers, and that needs to stop,” Jalade-Ekeinde wrote. “The obvious lack of details or respect shown towards African paying customers spilled over to the on-ground staff relationship.”
The actress questioned the airline’s motives, suggesting that African travelers often pay premium prices for their flights and deserve equal consideration. She urged Turkish Airlines to address these concerns and provide a more inclusive experience for all passengers.
Jalade-Ekeinde’s message resonated with many, sparking discussions about representation and cultural sensitivity in the travel industry. Her call for action highlights the importance of diversity and inclusion in all aspects of customer service.
