She was a saint

I’ve never seen such behavior in an airport before, much less on a plane. They should have been thrown out and criminally charged with interfering with a flight crew, but I guess Southwest is trying really hard to rebuild customer relations. But these people did not deserve how well they were treated in response to their aggressions.

That flight attendant–

–well, there’s an old Washington DC saying that the definition of a diplomat is someone who can tell you to go to hell in such a way that you look forward to the trip.

So much went so wrong. She handled it so well. I told her that and thanked her.

Never before has a flight attendant given me a hug as I was getting off the plane.

It sounds like she really needed to hear what you had to say; I’m so glad you told her!

I’m sorry the situation was so complicated.

How wonderful that you took time to tell her your gratitude. I am sure it helped her recuperate from the situation better.

Oh my, sounds like quite a disturbance. I’m happy you were able to show her the caring side of humanity. And I hope the trip was fun otherwise.

You should probably take a few minutes to send a commendation to the flight attendants of that flight.
Apparently managers do pay attention.
