Normally, I am not a big fan of American Airlines - since they took over TWA, and have gutted St. Louis as a hub, and pretty much turned us into a minor regional airport (plus, they screwed a lot of the former TWA employees).

However, I have to give them credit.

Last week, flying down to Orlando for Christmas with the in-laws, we noticed a lot of U.S. servicemen in the airport, clearly back from Iraq. When we boarded the plane, first class was mostly empty. The American crew let the service personal board the plane first, and pick any first class seat they wanted. And during the flight, the crew bent over backwards to spoil the soldiers.

At the end of the flight, the flight crew thanked them for their service to the country over the P.A.



Very classy. I might write them a letter.

+1. Good to see it. Maybe email FOX News about it too, see if they would put it on the air.

They've been doing that for over a year now. I also read an article where stewardesses serving on AA flights coming back from Iraq were bringing along a square piece of lawn on the flights over to pick up troops, putting it at the entry way of the plane so the troops can step on American soil when boarding the plane.

Yea, but when are they going to put flight adendents in the lavatories to "service" our service men on their way home.

We don't call 'em "Hags and Fags" for nothing.

As a employee of AA I take great pride with helping out the "boys"

If you want, I'll get you a good address to write a letter

I am so FAWKING glad the liberals won't be able to turn our servicemen into "babykillers" like they did the Vietnam vets.
