The Delta is in “immediate start-up of a new process for the management of the content that is available via Delta’s entertainment,” a spokesman said in a statement to Fox News.

“The studios provide video in one of two forms: the theatrical, the original version and the edited version. We have chosen to use the edited version, and now, to realize the content is within our guidelines, are unnecessarily excluded from both of the movies. We are working to make sure this doesn’t happen again.”

“The studio has agreed to a special Delta, editing, and preserving of the LGBTQ+ love scenes in both ‘Advantage’ and ‘Rocketman’ on your flights as soon as possible,” the spokesperson added.
