They are greeters, baggage handlers, cabin attendants, brand ambassadors and–oh, yes–they’re responsible for piloting your charter flight. Charter providers, eager to distinguish themselves in a competitive market, are touting the customer service their flight crews provide. That makes sense.
“You are so motivated to make sure the trip goes smoothly, because you know that the organs of these two kids are now going to save the lives of more than just a handful of other kids.”
