I would like to introduce you to Josh, a member of RDU’s emergency services team.
Several months ago, Josh was at Terminal 2 on a medical call. As he was putting his equipment away, he saw two elderly women who were struggling to get their suitcases out of their car and into the terminal. Recognizing that no one was helping them, Josh, without hesitation, asked if he could assist them.
Within minutes, he had retrieved a wheelchair from inside the terminal and carried the passengers’ bags into the terminal to the ticket counter.
Now meet Melissa, who works at JetBlue at RDU. Leaving Terminal 2 one afternoon, she met a gentleman who was in a panic because he could not locate his business partner. With a broken phone and unable to leave his car unattended on the curb, he didn’t know what to do.
After the motorist asked Melissa for help, she went back inside the terminal, paged the passenger and checked his flight status. She then returned to give the motorist all of the information he needed to meet his business partner when he arrived at RDU.
Recounting the story, the motorist said, “This agent is a great person, as well as an employee I would love to have work for me.”
Wait. There’s more.
A business traveler who regularly flies through RDU recently wrote in to thank Aida, a waitress at AJ’s Tavern in Terminal 1. The passenger had eaten at the restaurant three times within two months. The third time, the waitress, who had waited on him before, remembered what he had ordered during his last two visits, making a big impression on him.
“The fact that she remembered me from three weeks ago was a pleasant surprise, but to also remember what I’d ordered and how I liked my tea was simply amazing.”
