This is nothing new to the blog but considering just how many new readers keep coming in each day it is fun to share this and I hope they “pay it forward” and copy what I do. You can download the above “card” from THIS PDF link and print it from any printer. Then fold it in half and then in half again and it will look like what you see above.
Now what I also do, that you can do if you want, is buy $10 Starbucks cards in bulk. You can buy them with your Delta AMEX card to meet spend or use say your Chase INK cards to get 5x buying them at office supply stores. I then put one of the gift cards inside each of the cards. Simple and a nice thank you to the hard working FAs. You can also, if you are at a office supply store, get envelopes that fit the card you have just made.
The other thing I will be handing out is a tiny flash light to each FA. Why? All you have to do is work a night flight and you will see the need. Having one of these to light up a small area and not disturb others is nice. So, each one that takes care of me gets one.
Another thing I may get, and you could maybe get too, are can openers. What – why? Do you have ANY idea just how many cans an FA opens each day they fly. How hard this is on their hands? So, if you find a bulk lot of these at a cheap price (with or without a logo), why not pick them up and hand them out on each flight. I bet you get a smile and a thank you!
Other things that are handy to think about? Pens! Especially on international flights. They never have enough pens. This will be appreciated along with chocolate and anything else that you can think of to say – THANK YOU – to the Delta people who work so hard. – René
