A big change is coming to air travel in the near future.

New "unspecified" and "undisclosed" gender options are going to be available for passengers in the near future.

A trade group for numerous U.S. carriers says this move provides a "culture of diversity and inclusion."

United Airlines says within the next few weeks its passengers can select "undisclosed" or "unspecified" in addition to the traditional "male" or "female" choices.

Others, including Alaska Airlines, American Airlines, Delta Airlines and Southwest Airlines, say they're working on giving people more gender options.
