Airlines do much more than take you from point A to point B. They ensure that your flight is on schedule, comfortable, and overall, a safe journey.
Great airline service is determined by experiences and personal preference. While some people may love flying with certain airlines, others may share a different opinion.
Well, one married woman from California has learned that some crew members at United Airlines go above and beyond their job.
According to Brit Morin’s Twitter post, she lost her wedding rings the week prior while flying between New York City and Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
By the time she returned home to San Francisco, her rings were nowhere to be found. As you could imagine, Morin was completely devastated.
But thankfully, a gate agent discovered the sentimental jewelry and placed the rings in a safe.
The agent then gave them to an airline pilot who was traveling back to San Francisco.
He was able to hand-deliver the wedding rings back to Morin. A note from the captain expressed how happy he was to return the missing items.
I lost my wedding/engagement rings last week somewhere between New York and Jackson Hole. A @United gate agent found it, put it in a safe, and then gave it to a pilot to HAND DELIVER it back to me in SF. I have a newfound faith in humanity and airlines ?? Thanks United. pic.twitter.com/T342OGou5p

To date, Morin’s post has gained more than 3,000 likes and 397 retweets and continues to spread.
News stations from all over asked permission to run her story, including ABC’s Good Morning America.
Apparently, GMA was partially blamed for the dilemma. Morin, who is also the founder of Brit and Co. in San Francisco, said she’s often a guest on the show.
She happened to be working on “an [on-location] segment with [Paula Faris] that AM and took it off for the shoot.”
Getting her rings back has restored her faith in airlines. Loyal customers of United were happy to hear her great experience with the company.
“This is the United (Continental) I have known for years,” a person commented. “So glad they came through for you!”
United Airlines’ Twitter page not only thanked Morin for the share, but also grabbed some personal information from her so they could track down the helpful employees.
Hopefully, they get the recognition they deserve for setting a positive example for the rest of the team.
