“Sad to see that my preferred airline, @Delta flight 1998 has provisions for various languages and audio description for in-flight entertainment but no closed captions for deaf and hard of hearing flyers,” wrote Matlin, 54, in the caption for a video in which she explained the dilemma using American Sign Language.

As always, Matlin’s fans had her back, and shared their support via Twitter, with some offering similar complaints.

Shortly after Matlin’s tweet, Delta responded by thanking her for “keeping us accountable as we work to create more inclusie experiences,” pointing out that the airline is in the process of upgrading this feature for all of its planes.
