On Saturday, an American Airlines Flight Attendant was working on a flight from Phoenix to Dallas with the airline’s CEO, Doug Parker onboard the flight.
While she was walking in the cabin during the in-flight pre-departure service with a tray of drinks, a passenger in front of her suddenly stopped and hit her.
The drinks on the tray she was carrying flew and went all over her CEO.
She became very afraid and wondered if she was going to be sacked for pouring drinks on her own CEO. But fortunately for her, the CEO is a jolly good fellow and they ended up having a chat and a selfie.
She revealed that when he was getting off the plane he told her he’d never forget her.
She shared the story on Instagram.
Read what she wrote below:-
Story time y’all! Incase you missed it.
The other day I was working a flight to Dallas. I had our CEO (Doug Parker) on my flight. I was serving drinks during boarding to the first class cabin. I had a full tray with drinks on it, when the passenger in front of me stops in the aisle and backs up. He bumps into the tray and the drinks go flying.
Guys I have worked for American Airlines for 4 years, and not once have I ever spilt a drink on a passenger.
Guess who they land on. Half of them went all over me, the other half in Doug’s lap. I WAS MORTIFIED. I wanted to drop dead right there in the aisle. (Like am I still employed?!) I’m still slightly traumatized/embarrassed.
Luckily he was super cool, duh a good sport about it. He later came back and we chatted for a little, and joked about it the rest of the flight.
When he was getting off the plane he told me he’d never forget me…. guess that’s a good thing right?
Most people never even meet their CEO let alone shower them with beverages. But it’s too good of a story not to tell. Accidents happen. OOPS
