Waiting to board a flight usually means impatiently standing in front of the airline’s gate, tapping your foot, and incessantly checking your cell phone. What you most likely don’t think about, though, is what the flight crew needs to do in order to prepare the plane for your arrival.
This is what the crew does in the 15 minutes before you even step onto the plane. It’s a flurry of busy tasks!
So, the next time you’re sighing and waiting to board, remember…there is probably a good reason for every single delay. The attendants need to clean, be briefed on aircraft details, and make sure nothing is left behind. Don’t be impatient — be thankful!
Lindsey had just returned home from a month-long teaching program in Costa Rica and was waiting patiently at the airport for her boyfriend to come pick her up. Little did she know, he had much more in mind than that.
As she sat there in the arrivals area, she was joined by two strangers. One of them started playing the guitar while the other began singing “It Will Rain” by Bruno Mars. At first she had no idea what was going on, but then she started having a few suspicions that her boyfriend might have a hand in this. Her suspicions were correct, and as she stood up to see if she could find him she spotted him all suited-up and carrying flowers, just waiting to welcome her home in the best way.
Now if this is how he picks her up from the airport after being a month away from her, then just imagine what his proposal will look like!
The two musicians were Rico Contreras (vocals) and Luis Mojica (guitarist) from Mariachi Nuevo Estilo A.D.M. in San Antonio, Texas. So if you ever find yourself in the area needing singers for a romantic airport gesture, look them up!
