When a flight is delayed, two things are key – communicating with your passengers, and keep them comfortable. During a recent delay, Captain Jason Newell, First Officer Cecilia Ernst and Flight Attendant Ayana Spann did just that, providing constant updates from the cockpit and textbook-perfect service in the cabin. Here’s what one of our passengers had to say about her experience:
I just wanted to give a shout out to Trans States Airlines Flight Attendant Ayana Spann. Captain Jason Newell and First Officer Cecilia Ernst. They were amazing!
When we got on the plane, Captain Newell announced that we were going to be delayed due to a paperwork issue, but both he and First Officer Cecilia Ernst did a wonderful job keeping everyone updated. Ayana had the biggest smile, a very positive attitude, and did whatever she needed to do to keep the passengers happy.
When Captain Newell came back over the PA, he announced that the pilots had received the paperwork, but we were 1,200 lbs over in fuel and that flight would be further delayed while the issue was resolved. Right away, here comes Ayana with water service and a smile, making sure that everyone was comfortable throughout the delay. She was a rock star! Ayana did a wonderful job and is truly an asset to Trans States Airlines. The pilots also deserve kudos for their part in keeping everyone updated, staying positive, keeping us safe, and getting us home.
The crew was excellent, and they all represented the airline in a very professional manner. Keep up the good work!
