Kudos to American Airlines. I’ve frequently posted about flight problems and airline stupidity. This is not one of those posts. We had a number of returning soldiers on the Dallas to Seattle leg of our trip today. The soldiers got a round of applause from the passengers and the American Airlines flight crew treated them like kings. They got free food (it was a buy food only flight), free headsets, and generally great treatment. Apparently American still remembers 9/11 and knows who helps keep their planes from crashing into skyscrapers.
