In general I think too many airline horror stories are reported (after all, who doesn’t want to hear about Helen the sensationalized orange juice flight safety professional?) while the good is often left out. Anyway, I read this post on FlyerTalk and couldn’t help but smile. The end of the story is just the icing on the cake. Couldn’t make up a better story if I tried!
That being said, she has to be either very good looking or charming. I’ve NEVER seen them bring back the jet bridge, even with a dozen elite misconnects waiting at the gate. Or maybe the captain just had a reason to be in a particularly good mood?
