Columbus Fire Semi-Pro Football Champions Fly American Eagle for Playoffs

Last night on my flight from Columbus, Ohio to Miami, Florida I had the honor of serving the most wonderful passengers. They were a nice group of about twenty people headed on a Carnival Cruise to the Bahamas and Honduras for a week. One of them was the most adorable little boy who drew pictures for me. A drawing he made was a map of the way to fly to Miami. At the end of the flight he stopped in the cockpit to say hello to the pilots.

Where to Find American Airlines Airfares?

Sunrise Great Exuma Island, Bahamas
During my flight the other day to Charlotte, N.C. I was chatting with one of my Platinum passengers about the effects of Orbitz and Expedia not showing American Airlines airfares. He shared with me that he lives in Northwest Arkansas and that American Eagle is the only carrier for him with service to Dallas, Texas. He said it would have really bummed him out, if he could not book his flights. Luckily, Agencia is offered for the business travelers so he can still see American Airlines airfares. This is great news for our business travelers.
