This Airline Had The Best Response To A Guy Complaining That His Flight Attendant Wasn't Hot Enough

"Prejudice doesn't fly, we leave it on the ground."

Posted on January 22, 2015, at 4:39 p.m. ET

A Facebook user commented on the Argentina Airlines Facebook page: "What gets my attention is the low quality of flight attendants that the company has. Before they were tall, nice," he wrote. "Now they only take short fat girls."

Argentina Airlines' Facebook page then actually responded, writing that "prejudice doesn't fly, we leave it on the ground."

- Height: For women, between 5'4" and 5'7" -For men, between 5'7" and 6'1"

- Argentine citizen

- High school graduate

Argentine social media users have been celebrating the epic comeback on Facebook and Twitter.

A flight attendant for the airline even tweeted a selfie with the hashtag #prejuiciosnovuelan or #PrejudiceDoesntFly.

"Happy to be the TCP I am! #prejuiciosnovuelan @Aerolineas_AR @Floxie10 @EAeronavegantes."

The now-viral exchange has been deleted, but Argentina Airlines told BuzzFeed News that the response was real and it's taken the appropriate measures.

Finally an airline social media story with a happy ending!
