Quick post from Austin, TX.
Arrived a few hours ago via Salt Lake City, UT. Both the flight from Calgary to Salt Lake and the trip from Salt Lake to Austin were on Canadair Regional Jets operated by SkyWest Airlines. The trip from Salt Lake to Austin (DL 3916) was memorable because of our flight attendant.
"Jim" was a high-school teacher for 30+ yrs and has worked as a flight attendant for 15 months, he told us. He provided excellent service to those on our full plane and he received a rousing ovation from all passengers as we taxied toward the gate in Austin.
I'm sure it would have been a standing ovation, had the captain not had the "fasten seat-belt" sign illuminated ;)
