Thank you all for supporting Johnny and raising over $18,000 to send him off with a great Thank You,

From Johnny.
To All My Amazing Friends, and a term that I can proudly
proclaim as only! mine and I will forever take pride in saying “My Pilots”
It has been an honor knowing, working for and with
all of you, I could not ask for a more amazing group of
guys and gals that I love to work for, support pilots and their families
in the tough times and more importantly laugh with, during my journey with AA.

It has always been my Mission for most of you that know me very well, when I walked through Ops to Greet all pilots with a handshake even those that are not based at LAX, to welcome them as I felt in my spirit as an ambassador, of the LAX Flight Office, even though I was only a staff assistant virtually on the bottom of the food chain, as one of my favorite sayings I live by is “The Best Servants Make The Greatest Leaders” ….to make all feel warmly welcomed and send them off with a salute of safe journeys….and in most times ending up in a heartfelt hug for my local pilots…followed by Laughs!

Finally, my time working in the flight office, working with real pilots was a dream come true,
as I have always wished I could’ve of been a pilot, but could never afford it, especially for me
driving a desk, making close to minimum wage and I would usually joke with a pilot …”But Dude You Fly Jets” and for me, that is An Honor! and Living The Dream!......so hopefully the future will extend that opportunity to me soon…..To Fly!

In Closing, I never can give enough Thanks! And would never of dreamed of You All doing something
that is so awesome!. For Me!

But I will Do My Best to Say! A Heartfelt! Thank You! And I Love You! Always!

I hope to continue to stay in touch way beyond AA, as our friendships are for life
as I will be here for all of you “For Life” and its journeys.

Aloha and Safe Journeys!
