Southwest Crew Honors Couple With Impromptu Baby Shower for Adopted Daughter



It’s still possible to fly the friendly skies.

A couple was bringing their adopted baby daughter home on a Southwest Airlines flight from Colorado to California when they were surprised mid-flight with an impromptu baby shower thrown by the crew and passengers.

Dustin Moore shared the heartwarming tale in a Twitter thread that demonstrates there still are positive experiences to be had during air travel.

“I’d like to share with you the kindness strangers offered us the day we brought our daughter home,” wrote Moore. “I hope our story uplifts you and reminds you there is goodness to be had in this world.”

When their daughter awoke mid-flight and needed a diaper change, a flight attendant named Jenny was there to lend a hand. She and another passenger politely wondered what had prompted a flight with such a young infant, and Moore shared a brief version of their adoption story.

Another flight attendant named Bobby also inquired about their daughter. Then, the Moores heard an intercom announcement.

“The attendant Bobby came on and announced a special guest on the flight—our daughter,” Moore tweeted. “She’s just been adopted by her parents Caren and Dustin and is making her way home. The entire cabin erupted in cheers and applause.”

The flight attendants then passed out napkins and pens and passengers and crew shared encouraging words and baby advice with the couple.

The couple was touched by the actions of the Southwest crew and their fellow passengers.

American Airlines Increasing Domestic Service for the Summer



Like the rest of the United States, American Airlines is ready for the summer.

As the demand for air travel slowly rises, American is bringing back suspended routes, offering double AAdvantage miles, reopening Admirals Club lounges and offering enhanced cleaning protocols.

American is planning to fly 55 percent of its domestic schedule and nearly 20 percent of its international schedule in July as compared to the same period last year, totaling around 40 percent of the airline’s systemwide capacity compared to July 2019.

Demand has started to rebound, as the carrier reported it flew a daily average of about 110,000 customers per day in May, which is an increase of 71 percent over the approximately 32,000 passengers it transported daily in April.

“We’re seeing a slow but steady rise in domestic demand. After a careful review of data, we’ve built a July schedule to match,” American Senior Vice President Vasu Raja said in a statement. “Our July schedule includes the smallest year-over-year capacity reduction since March. We’ll continue to look for prudent opportunities to restore service so our customers can travel whenever and wherever they are ready.”

Starting on June 22, American will begin reopening Admirals Club lounges around the country with pre-packaged snack offerings and a full-service bar for customers to enjoy complimentary beverages.

As for the airline’s commitment to health and safety guidelines, American will utilize enhanced cleaning measures, enforce social distancing protocols and provide limited food and beverage offerings.

The carrier is also allowing customers to book with confidence, as American announced it would waive change fees for customers purchasing tickets by June 30. Travelers are allowed to change their origin and destination cities as part of this offer, but must pay any fare difference.
