October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  The color pink is everywhere -- and Delta Airlines is no exception.  They do an amazing job with their awareness campaign, from flying the skies painted pink to selling and promoting their very own “pink” products. 

Delta's international "pink plane" will make many international journeys by the end of October, to destinations including Italy, Spain, Germany and the United States. The aircraft features BCRF's (Breast Cancer Research Fund) trademark pink ribbon logo on the tail of the aircraft and adjacent to the boarding door. The special plane has carried nearly 150,000 passengers and flown approximately 104 trips around the world, since being painted pink in May 2010.

Who could resist a frosty Pink Martini (or lemonade) at 30,000 feet? Putting on our pink uniforms is our way of standing up for and supporting the ongoing battle for prevention, treatment, and a cure.

All proceeds will go towards the Breast Cancer Research Fund.
