I… I… I… I… am speechless.
There are some airlines, like Southwest, that are known for their charismatic flight attendants.
American Airlines is not one of those airlines, though. You most definitely wouldn’t expect this, let alone from what appears to be a rather senior crew (based on the fact that they’re working a Phoenix to London trip, which requires a lot of seniority to hold).
Check out this video that a Twitter user shared of two flight attendants putting on a little “performance” on AA194 from Phoenix to London:
PHX to LHR is always a long flight, but AA 194 flight attendants were awesome. Especially this crew that recognized a couple sitting across from us that just hit 1M miles flying with @AmericanAir ! pic.twitter.com/FzGHcY9KyH

Apparently they were recognizing someone who earned million miler status on the flight. I find that rather confusing, because unlike Delta and United, I don’t think American does anything to recognize million milers on their “achieving” flight (at least I didn’t get anything). Maybe the passenger let them know that he earned million miler on that flight, or maybe things have changed?
But this video is unlike anything I’ve seen before on American.
Does the guy say his name is Captain Ike? And does he really say “when you’re flying with us, you’re flying with friends?”
I’m not sure what part of this I like most — “Captain” Ike, or the incredible background dancer.
This is a lot to take in. In all honesty, though, I do appreciate their enthusiasm — it’s so nice to see people who come to work and seem to enjoy their jobs, rather than people who show up with a bad attitude.
