Orlando Airport Starbucks Dec.29 8am.


#1

A Delta Airlines Pilot (very tall, slender, longish grey-blond hair, with a Southern accent, age 45-early 50s) started chatting with me at the creamer station. We spoke about the Philadelphia Eagles losing a game after a winter weather postponement. (I was traveling home to Philadelphia on AirTran). The moment was brief but very easy and relaxed.
Then I quickly left. I had been up since 3 am that morning and I guess my brain was not working in full throttle. I feel so badly as I believe had I not acted so foolishly, we would have had a lovely engaging chat that may have led to a friendship.
Since this encounter, I have been so distracted at work (I run a research center at an Ivy League Business School) and thought I would reach out in the hope that this man would read this post.
And if an airline crew member knows this gentleman , I would so appreciate it if he/she could pass this message on. I believe his flight would have left Orlando on Dec. 29th around 8:30- 9 am.
I was traveling with my mother, and that morning, wore my long brown hair up. I was also wearing a dark brown jacket. I am slender and in my mid 40s.
Any leads would be appreciated. I do hope one day to be in touch with this nice gentleman.
Thanks so much.

I was about to come on here with a smart !#@ reply to the orig, in the vein of I saw you there you saw me , we exchanged looks blah blah…thinking that this was maybe a
"Hey the Starbucks at PHL has a great view of the ramp to watch operations."

my favorite part, “the creamer station” :laughing: :laughing: :laughing:
haha what a life!

I thought she was trying to get on with her life. But then again I’m not much of a coffee drinker so maybe I missed something.


#6

No I’m the one that missed something, I was too wrapped up in the “creamer station” that I must have skimmed over the wearing the hair up indicating that it is a she and not a he…I saw this one totally different the first time I read it :smiley:

Sure you were drinking only coffee??? :laughing:

Good luck! If it’s meant to be you’ll meet him again.


#9

And THIS will be the last time she ever posts anything on Flight Aware Discussions.

WOW!! Someone has some interpersonal skill issues…
Glad I’m not crewing a plane with you.

& to ET2300…
hope you can find him and at least say what you want to say; if not… How about a tall slender Lear pilot, I make half as much money, have no retirement, love beer, guns and horses, act like I’m 12, etc… :wink: J/K :exclamation:

Good luck!

I’ll have you know my crew mates find me to be caring, compassionate, and a good listener. And I even like to snuggle during those long waits at the FBO!

And you’d LOVE to crew with me. My airplane is only a year old and has modern avionics! :wink:

Creamer station…that is funny…
