Kudos to Air North

I just rushed back from Europe for a family funeral and as I looked out the window at the snow covered peaks going by, I reflected on the great service you folks offer.

I just rushed back from Europe for a family funeral and as I looked out the window at the snow covered peaks going by, I reflected on the great service you folks offer.

I had just flown with Condor, Lufthansa, and Swiss Air. Their service was good and I have no complaints, but Air North still stands out above the rest.

Perhaps it is the fact that I was almost home, or maybe it was the friendly stewardess, or the fact that my sandwich had an impressive amount of ham and cheese in it. I don’t know. I do know that all those experiences, plus flying back to our wilderness wonderland while enjoying an oven fresh, warm chocolate chip cookie, makes Air North the best airline in the world.
