Am I the only one to notice that American Airlines’ social media has suddenly become both entertaining and fun? I used to go months without seeing posts from American Airlines on Facebook and now I see multiple posts each day and they are funny and moving and entertaining. It sets a great tone for this airline and I hope its nurtured.
Some examples are:
- a post of an airplane wing against a sunrise backdrop in the sky with the words “O beautiful for spacious skies…” on 4th of July.
- Another sunrise photo with an AA tail at a airport gate with “The early bird gets the worm…”
- A post on a Wednesday with a photo of a 777 taking off that says “Hump Day? More like #WheelsUpWednesday!”
- A photo of an AA Captain who happens to be a woman that says: ““Fifteen years ago, another female captain brought her 7-year-old son on a work trip. Throughout the sequence and on the layovers in the Caribbean, he took it all in. On the flight back into Miami, one of the flight attendants asked if he wanted to be a pilot when he grew up.
He scrunched up his face and, with complete disdain, said, ‘No, that’s a GIRL’S job!’” – Capt. Kathi Durst, Fleet Captain 737″
These posts are fun, saucy and I hope they continue. Great job, American Airlines
