|Boarding in Tampa
On that first flight, the Flight Crew announced that they had a VIP on board celebrating her 18th birthday with a day of flight. The Passengers sang and cheered for Kellisa. This occurred on every flight and made Kellisa feel very special. This experience alone would have more than satisfied our quest to make her day special, but what followed was more than we could ever have expected.

From Tampa, we went to New Orleans. When we landed, Passengers stopped by our front row seats to wish Kellisa a happy birthday, shake her hand, give her five, and take selfies with her. After all the departing Passengers left the plane, the Ground Crew came aboard with their own mobile party. They brought an unbelievable level of excitement to our journey. This celebration occurred at every stop, except one.
When we stopped in Orlando, we were asked to deplane. A man in a tuxedo boarded the plane and escorted us off the plane. When Kellisa exited the jetway, the entire gate area had been decorated for her and people cheered and sang. We had approximately 20 minutes on the ground before being escorted back to our newly decorated spot on the plane.
