The Voice just called...

October 06, 2009 2 Comments A+ a-

Henry from the Crew Desk just called. I like getting calls from him. He usually calls early to assign a trip--not just the required minimum 4 hours prior to departure. And he has a big, deep, booming voice--if he wasn't such a pussycat, his voice could scare you!

I've never met Henry--I know we walked through the Crew Desk area when we were in training in Chicago--but, I don't remember anyone's face or name--we were all scared of our shadows in that place!

There is one woman at the Crew Desk that calls to assigns you to a trip from hell with weird sneer-reminds me of the Wicked Witch of the West in the Wizard of Oz: "I'll get you my pretty...and your little dog, too!" I dread hearing her calls. Now, when Henry calls, his is a reassuring voice (in a weird, Crew Desk type of way...)

Henry called about 30 minutes ago to give me an assignment with 7 hours notice. SEVEN hours! That's like gold to me!

I'm working the last flight out to San Francisco (SFO) with just under 12 hours there, then deadheading back home tomorrow afternoon. Easy peasy!

Thanks, Henry!

How is the Frankfurt flight going to happen without you?! Or did they reroute it through San Fran?
