AngelsThe pilot leans far out of the cockpit to grab the passenger’s cell phone
As the customer left his smartphone in the gate area and boarding was already completed, the ground staff handed it directly to the cockpit.
A Southwest Airlines passenger left his smartphone in the gate area shortly before departure. When it was discovered, boarding at Los Angeles Long Beach Airport had already been completed and the plane had been moved away from the gate.
But employees reacted quickly, as seen in a video posted by the airline on Twitter. The pilot leaned out of the cockpit window and tried to grab the phone the ground crew wanted to give him. It’s not that easy, but it worked on the second try – to everyone’s delight.
According to Southwest Airlines spokesman Chris Perry, the passenger who noticed the phone had just spoken to the owner and knew what flight he was on. The ground crew then contacted the pilot. “The captain then suggested they should try handing him the phone in the cockpit so he could return it to the customer,” the spokesman said. to CNN.
