Delta and United Airlines on Saturday announced they are cutting ties with the National Rifle Association (NRA). The airlines join the Avis, Hertz, Enterprise, Alamo, and National car rental brands as well as First National Bank of Omaha, Best Western hotels, MetLife insurance, and more than a dozen other companies in ending deals with the NRA. Delta previously offered discounted airfare for NRA members, and United offered discounts on flights to and from the organization's annual conference. Companies are distancing themselves from the NRA in response to customer outrage following last week's mass shooting at a Parkland, Florida, high school.
