Delta CEO Helps Worried Mom Make Her Flight
Originally published on Wed June 26, 2013 8:13 am
DAVID GREENE, HOST:
And that brings us to today's last word in business - which is: Courtesy Seating.
Jessie Frank was a distraught mom who was going to be late picking up her daughter at camp.
RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:
She was on stand-by in Washington, D.C. for an over-booked Delta Flight to New York, when a man offered up his seat. Turns out it was Delta CEO Richard Anderson. His kindness helped the mom and earned some good PR for the company.
GREENE: And we should say, Anderson did make the flight - the CEO rode in the cockpit jump seat.
Well, our flight has now landed. That's the business news on MORNING EDITION from NPR News. I'm David Greene.
MONTAGNE: And I'm Renee Montagne.
