General Manager’s "Spotlight on Customer Service Award" Winner June 2015
Angela Allen, Southwest Airlines
Angela went the extra mile to return a lost iPad that had slipped out of its
case because of a broken zipper. The guest didn’t notice the iPad was missing until
he was on his flight and needed to do some work. Once he arrived at his next stop,
he received a call from Angela saying that someone returned the iPad to her,
and she immediately notified him. She was willing to hold the iPad until the guest
returned but since he was not returning to Atlanta, she took the iPad home for safekeeping.
On her day off, she sent it to him as promised. The guest says Angela is a dependable,
honest and sweet person who helped him out in a major jam.
