Go fly a… Magazine

This is something I hear my sighted friends complain about, they say "There's nothing I want in here!" Delta airlines likes to send out letters offering magazines for miles. Sighted people will complain that there isn't any magazine they want to read. I can understand that.

The thing is that none of the magazines are accessible. So in a way, Delta is offering a service to their passengers, a way of using their miles, that a blind or otherwise-print-disabled passenger can't use.

I noticed this because after this year of visits to various specialists, I had some miles, some of which are going to get canceled, and I was offered these magazines asz a way to use the miles. Well, it's not happening.
