I want to tell you a story about a Continental flight attendant

This story starts out at the NAR Midyear Conference and Board Meeting and WCR event in Washington DC May 11-16, 2009. After a very long week at the trade show, this flight attendant, Debbie Terrago did something I think needs to be brought to everyone’s attention. You see this flight attendant is also a fellow Realtor® and because of her, a completely full 737, was able to continue on to Houston... One of the flight attendants, working the flight became very ill right after takeoff and could not work the flight... and federal rules require 4 flight attendants on this flight.

I am sure Debbie was as tired as I was after a long week at the NAR Meetings and was probably looking forward to just kind of sitting back and relaxing.... But she did what a good Realtor® and flight attendant always does; she got the deal done....

You see, Debbie volunteered to work the flight back to Houston so we would not have to return to Washington DCA and pick up another flight attendant. Everyone at both Continental Airlines and the entire Continental flight 1059 owes Debbie Terrago a debt of gratitude. And I just want every Realtor® & future client to know, she will work for you and will get the job done.

Thanks again for working the flight so we could go home.

Danny, how cool is that!  Just one thing, was this a liability issue for the airline?

Danny - Awesome job sharing this heroic story. With so much bad news about poor customer service delivered by airlines, it's tremendous to hear how Debbie went well beyond "the call of duty" for her friends, her fellow passengers onboard and her company. Hats off to Debbie Terrago and to you for sharng this post!
