Delta CEO Helps Worried Mom Make Her Flight
DAVID GREENE, HOST:
And that brings us to today's last word in business, which is courtesy seating. Jessie Frank is a mom who was worried that she was going to be late to pick up her daughter at camp.
RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:
She was on standby in Washington, D.C., for an overbooked Delta flight to Atlanta, when a man offered her 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 landed - because that's the business news on MORNING EDITION, from NPR News. I'm David Greene.
MONTAGNE: And I'm Renee Montagne.
