An American Airlines flight attendant recently spilled drinks on the Airline’s CEO. He assured her it was no big deal, however. She didn’t get fired or even a warning.
Instead, she got a photo with the smiling head honcho and a great story to tell the world.
That flight attendant, 28-year-old Maddie Peters, says she’s never spilled a drink on a flight in her four years with the airline.
She says a passenger abruptly stopped and backed into her tray, sending drinks flying.
Half of them landed on CEO Doug Parker, who happened to be on the flight.
She said Parker was a good sport about it.
And later on in the flight, he came back to assure her the mishap was not a big deal.
Furthermore, they took a picture together and she shared it along with her story on social media.
After seeing the popularity of the post, Parker gave her a follow-up phone call.
She said he was surprised it was being talked about so much because he thought it was no big deal.
