Flight Attendant Saves a Student from Detention by Returning Library Book

With an average Tripadvisor score of just three stars, the budget Florida-based airline Spirit isn’t the kind of carrier you’d associate with great service.  Yes, Spirit might offer low-prices – after all, it is the self-proclaimed home of the ‘bare fare’ – but do you really think that its flight attendants are going to go out of their way to help you?  Well, do we have a surprise for you.

A Middle School student from Pennsylvania took a library book loaned from her school on vacation to Florida but accidentally left the book on her Spirit Airlines flight back home.  When she realised her mistake she thought she’d have to pay a fine for losing the book – and then she got called into the Principle’s office.

Surely this was the moment she would be reprimanded for her mistake?

Actually, no.  Instead, the Principle had the library book – and all because Spirit Airlines flight attendant Jamie Patzer had not only found the book on the airplane but then went out of her way to return it to Springton Lake Middle School.  A note from the flight attendant accompanied the book:

“I wanted to return it to your library to help the student who checked it out avoid any fines or discipline,” it read.

“I believe by the time I found the book, it literally travelled thousands of miles across the country multiple times — what a story it could tell!”

Principle Dr Robert Salladino publicly thanked the flight attendant via a Tweet and before you know it the story had gone viral.  It’s a good news day.
