airliner taxiing travelAn anti-pornography group is calling a major airline to task, and is asking the public to help.

Dawn Hawkins of the National Center on Sexual Exploitation experienced the problem when she was on a Delta flight. According to NCOSE communications director Katherine Blakeman, Hawkins' flight was going quite well – until she witnessed a man across the aisle watching pornography.

"She couldn't tell whether [the girls on film] were 14 or they were 18," Blakeman tells OneNewsNow, "and it could have easily been child pornography." When the flight attendant declined to do anything, Hawkins confronted the man by telling him he was part of the problem with exploitation of women and girls.

Blakeman tells a similar story about reporter and business owner Angela Zatopek, who witnessed a man viewing pornography last week on a Delta flight. In light of Delta staff's failure to address the issue, Zatopek also confronted the man herself.

NCOSE has written the airline, questioning its current policy and how aircraft personnel are being trained concerning the viewing of pornography. Delta has not responded to date, so the group is encouraging concerned individuals to visit Delta's website and drop a note to management asking them to deal with the situation that leaves offended passengers unprotected.
