Southwest Pilot surprises his 1 millionth passenger

posted by Carolina L. Guerrero -

I was scheduled to fly DEN to PIT this Sat, my Capt arrives and tells me in the past 21 years he's worked here at SWA, he's kept track of all the passengers he's transported and turns out his 1 MILLIONTH (!!!!) passenger is on this flight. He arranged to have champagne, planned on making an announcement, and found out exactly who his 1 millionth passenger was and then if that wasn't enough, he figured out exactly how much she paid for her ticket....put that much (out of his OWN pocket!) in an envelope and presented it to her. I am so incredibly proud and humbled to be able to "work" for this amazing LUVing airline. Captain John Charles Ritchie, you, sir, are the epitome of everything Southwest stands for and continues to even though we've grown so incredibly much over these past 45 (+) years. Without a heart, it's just a machine!! ❤💙💛 More pictures in comments...

This is what I call doing it right. A pilot named John Ritchie made an announcement on a recent Southwest flight surprising his one millionth passenger with gifts. The pilot, who used to be in the Navy, has been flying for the airlines company over 22 years and wanted to commemorate the moment. Watch him surprise his one-millionth passenger with a bottle of Champagne and an enveloped filled with cash above.
