Our member airlines work hard every day to provide high-quality customer service, delivering passengers and packages safely to their final destinations. Through the transfer of people and goods, U.S. airlines connect us to cultures and traditions across the world, truly making it a smaller place.
While as passengers we may not always be witness to their great work, the evidence is all around us. In case you missed it, here are highlights from a few of our member airlines last week.
Last fall, American Airlines employee Leo Schmitz was critically injured in the homecoming parade at Oklahoma State University. Less than a year later, Leo is back at work with a positive attitude and the support of his American Airlines family!

JetBlue’s Soar with Reading program is making a big difference in the lives of Detroit-area kids by installing 5 book vending machines and encouraging them to keep reading during summer vacation.
#SoarWithReading installed five book vending machines in Detroit so kids will have access to age-appropriate books all summer long. The best part? They get to keep the books to build their own libraries at home. And YOU can choose which city will get these machines next! Vote now and vote often at the link in our bio. #bookbattle
