Forget the "ladies and gentlemen" on Air Canada flights as the airline crew will start using "everyone" in place. According to a report by Simple Flying, Air Canada wants to establish a more gender-equal announcement, where everyone including "gender-x" are identified. "Gender X" are referred to people who are unsure of what gender they really are, hence, the name and classification.
An email had been sent to all Air Canada employees that they can no longer greet passengers and customers using the usual binary greeting. Instead of saying "Good morning ladies and gentlemen", everyone must now saw "good morning, everyone," addressing people in a more broad manner.
In Canada, it is now legal for their citizens to change the gender on their passports to accomodate those who feel that they are neighter a "lady" nor a "gentlemen". The X is an option that they can now choose to display on their passports and other identification documents,
