For those Customers needing special assistance deplaning the aircraft, please remain comfortably seated once we arrive at the gate so we may better assist you. At this time, you are welcome to use your cell phone if it is readily accessible.

These items include, but are not limited to: books, magazines, small pieces of wood, plastic trumpets and, of course, fog machines. Wersquo;d also like to mention that our pilots will be at the front of the plane. Be sure to give them a high five and shout your favorite catchphrase from television sitcoms of the rsquo;70s and rsquo;80s as you pass by.
