Only 13 People Used Delta NRA Discount
DELTA SAYS 13 PEOPLE USED ITS NRA DISCOUNT SCRAPPED AFTER PARKLAND SHOOTING
(CNN) – Delta Airlines says it lost a major tax break over a discount used by only 13 people.
The Atlanta-based company says that’s how many customers used its NRA discount.
Delta scrapped the offer in the aftermath of the deadly school shooting in Parkland, Florida.
But the move angered some Republicans in Georgia, who took out a fuel exemption for delta from a tax bill signed on Friday.
That means the airline will have to pay tens of million of dollars in extra fuel costs.
More than a dozen other companies distanced themselves from the NRA after the shooting.
Delta says it will remain neutral in the gun control debate.
