An airline turned their cabin pink in support of the woman’s march today

Such a good idea.

More than one million women are marching in protest against Donald Trump’s inauguration today.

One airline, Southwest, wanted to show their support for the march and changed the cabin lights to a pink colour. One passenger, Krystal Parrish, told Refinery29:

“I didn’t hear them say anything, but when they [turned on the lights] the whole plane recognized their intention and everyone started clapping.”

A representative from the airline said:

“Some of our aircraft are equipped with mood lighting and while this was not a companywide initiative, at times, our flight crews will adjust the lighting for a customer or group of customers traveling on their flight.

For instance, in October, one of our flight attendants changed the lighting to honor a breast-cancer survivor onboard their flight.”
