Travel looks like luxury here. I guess it still is if you can pay for it. But then again, as I look more closely at this black and white photo and see the lack of black, I don't know that even if I had the money I would have been let aboard a flight like this. Sometimes really looking at the "good old days" makes you think about what is really good.
Travel is a lot about where you will be welcomed. It makes me very excited to hear about American Airlines' new website and community Black Atlas, which is supposed to debut today.
For those of you who read this post when it was first published, you may have noticed a few changes. I keep adding new thoughts. Well, at least one more. I keep thinking about the idea of diversity and inclusion. So many companies claim to have diversity policies and that they promote tolerance. I keep thinking about the idea of tolerance and how different that is from welcoming. Welcoming. It's a very simple word, but a hard action to do if it's not sincere. Companies that state that they promote diversity and inclusion are you tolerating those new hires or welcoming them?
Being merely tolerated is actually pretty awful. We all want to be welcomed.
