I was traveling Monday, and earning double AAdvantage Miles and Double Elite Qualifying Miles on a return flight from San Francisco to Dallas.
My in-flight experience on American is generally very good, but once in a while I’ll have one of those flights where the flight attendants deliver and exceptional customer experience and this was one of those flights.
For example, one of the passengers was late in boarding, he was making a connection from an international flight, and was seated in the first row of first class. When he boarded the flight, all the overhead luggage space was taken, so the flight attendeant found a spot for him just behind the first class cabin.
Just before we landed, she found him a seat in coach close to his bag and moved him back there so he could grab his luggage and exit without having to wait for everyone else to get off the flight to retrieve his bag. It’s a small thing, but it’s one of those customer service details that only a polished professional would think of and that’s what made the crew so remarkable, because it was the whole flight crew that was like that throughout the flight and not just this one flight attendant. So to the the crew of American Airlines flight 1528, nice job and thank you!
Anyway, back to today’s episode.
