We were on an A320. Our charter coordinator was a shift mgr. from CMH...he was working on his VAC days. His dad was a WWII vet who took the trip earlier this year so the cause is near and dear to his heart.....BTW, forgot to add that our youngest vet was 78, which meant that he had lied to get in to the service to go fight...our oldest was 94. In addition, I rec'd 5-6 marriage proposals that day too !!!!The BOS Pops are long time regular Charter Customers of US and even though I understand DL is a major corporate sponsor they can't afford to use DL for Charters due to the big differance in price between DL and US. They are also very Happy Customers of US.
The WW2 Vets Charters sounds like a great thing, there was a Doug Parker column in the US magazine about these a few months ago.
Songbirdstew thanks for posting this and just curious what aircraft type you worked that day ?
