If you fly US airlines with any frequency, you’ll probably notice the increasing number of credit card pitches onboard flights. Flight attendants get paid commissions for card approvals (I’ve heard of a few flight attendants who make more money on credit card pitches than their flight attendant salary). It’s one of the few areas where airline employees are actually incentivized for results — now if only US airlines could create a similar incentive system for good service. 😉
Twitter user @djjohnpayne shares what’s easily one of the best and most enthusiastic onboard credit card pitches I’ve ever heard. This lady is good, and apparently she had a minute spiel before the video even started about the benefits of the merger.

But the best part of it all? The American safety video ends with a big round of applause and cheering, and it appears as if she intentionally paused the video, made her pitch, and then had the applause play, to make it seem like it was in response to her announcement. For those of you who have no clue what I’m talking about, here’s the relevant part of the safety video:
THAT. IS. EPIC.
