Delta And United Airlines Just Ended Their NRA Partnerships

Two major airlines, Delta and United just announced they are cutting ties with the National Rifle Association, joining a growing list of companies scrambling to cut business relationship with the pro-gun lobbying group.

Delta Air Lines announced Saturday morning that it’s ending discounted rates for NRA members. “We will be requesting that the NRA remove our information from their website,” the company said in a tweet.

United Airlines followed a short time later, saying the company will no longer offer discounts on flights to the NRA and demanding the NRA remove the airline’s information from their website.

The companies were the latest to abandon partnerships with the NRA amid a renewed public debate over tightened gun laws following a school shooting in Florida last week that left 17 dead.

The National Rifle Association did not immediately return a request for comment.
