Captain Ricki

This is Rick. He’s a captain with American Airlines.

I had the privilege of flying on his last flight! He is retiring after 30 plus years of doing what he loves.

First in the Air Force, then onto US Airways and now American Airlines.

When we arrived firetrucks were waiting, with water and celebration!

His wife Frances was on board. As we took off he said, “I want to thank everyone who’s flown with me…especially my wife. She’s onboard today and is probably the one with tears in her eyes. Finally I will be home more. “

Thank you Captain Rick and all the other amazing pilots, flight agents and attendants, mechanics, baggage throwers and cleaning crews who make flight possible for people like me. I recognize that I fly so much, that sometimes I take you for granted.

Congratulations!
