With all the recent negativity surrounding airlines lately we felt obligated to post something positive that happened in the supposedly friendly skies.
This Southwest pilot, Captain John Richie, made a special announcement before they took off and gave one lucky passenger a special surprise. He explained on the loud-speaker that he flew F-16s as a combat and test pilor before retiring from the Air Force 22 years ago to fly commercial. Throughout the years he had kept a tally of every flight and passenger.
"Today is a very special day," he says. "Today I'm flying my one-millionth passenger."
Finally a happy moment on an airplane!
Richie ecstatically handed a bottle of champagne, an autographed boarding pass and a envelope of cash to his one-millionth passenger.
