Delta responds to Orlando massacre

In the wake of the Orlando massacre, Delta Air Lines is offering "situational flexibility" to assist victims' families with travel.

Customers or their travel agents can contact Delta reservations for assistance, according to the Atlanta-based airline.

Delta said it also put the Pride flag at half-staff at its headquarters near Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.

Members of Delta's Employee Equality Network group plan to participate in a vigil Tuesday evening at 7 p.m. at the Center for Civil and Human Rights in Atlanta.

“We all hurt and mourn for those lost in Orlando as well as the numerous victims, some who remain critical,” wrote Delta’s Employee Equality Network group president Michael Long in a note to members.

Delta is the official airline sponsor of nine Pride festivals in the United States and Canada, including LA Pride, Motor City Pride in Detroit, Cadillac Barbie IN Pride Parade and Circle City IN Pride Festival in Indianapolis this past weekend, as well as Atlanta Pride in October.
