KosherKlipper On Song (LGA-PBI-LGA)

Posted (8 years 10 months 2 weeks 6 days 19 hours ago) and read 3807 times:

This is my very first Trip Report, I only wish I had taken pics.. next time I'll be sure to! We have another trip to PBI planned for end of OCT (also on SONG) and then AMS in January, so I'll make up for this report's single pic with many more from those trips !

The next paragraph is what helps to illustrate just how much we appreciated the efforts and service of all the wonderful SONG staff, from the res agents who helped me with a date change, to the gate agents at LGA and PBI to the absolutely wonderful F/A's on board. Thanks to all these dedicated people, a trip that we were both frankly a little nervous about undertaking turned into such an absolute pleasure.

My partner and I decided to treat my younger brother who has Downs Syndrome and who is now partially paralyzed and wheelchair-bound due to having been diagnosed with a brain tumor almost two years ago. The surgery was a success beyond any of our wildest dreams, as we were prepared for the fact that "even if" he survived the craniotomy procedure, he'd likely be in a coma indefinitely or at best, totally paralyzed. He's a tough little guy, and not fully being able to understand what he was up against (or what he wasnt supposed to be able to do -), was a blessing .. as every day he got stronger, regained use of his entire left side (though not as fully as pre-tumor) and now is at the point of almost being able to walk again on his own. He's our miracle and every day with him is such a gift and a treasure. I should also mention that only one month after my brother finally got released from the hospital/rehab center, our mother passed away from a long battle with lung cancer. It's been a rough couple years for us all and we needed a vacation!

A close friend of ours who owns a little house in West Palm Beach offered us the use of his place, as he was going to be away for an extended period. That's all we needed to hear! A house with a pool (and it turned out that the house was just near PBI so laying in the pool plane-watching ... whats better than that!? LOL!) And the house was to be ours for as long as we wanted? Getouttahere!! I searched the internet and found SONG to have great fares .. just $69 each way ! Spirit matched, but as we had been flying Delta Express and Delta primarily, we thought it best to use the SONG itinerary and continue earning miles toward that free ticket!

Up to this point, Delta was always just like all the other major carriers in my eyes. Reliable for the most part, some good days, some bad days, some situations handled well, some not so well, but hey that's the nature of any business where the main component of service is people, right? But then we did this trip on SONG and i was so blown away by the difference in attitude between these folks and the typical jaded (read "overworked, underpaid, harassed") airline people we are so used to dealing with. It's a total breat hof fresh air - like Southwest is, in it's own way, tho (and I mean no disrespect to the WN folks out there), but SONG does it with a little more class overall. For example, I dont picture SONG F/A's starting toilet paper roll races on their flights LOL! In any case, its so nice to see an airline where the people are encouraged to have fun and to "lighten up"! It creates such a relaxed atmosphere all around and it's really appreciated -- especially on the dreaded "KosherKipper" routes ! This is the affectionate (?) term airline people give any flight leaving the NYC metro area to either MIA/FLL or PBI. And for those of you who arent aware, its name comes from the large contingent of elderly, demanding, cranky, demanding, whiney (did I mention demanding?) shall we say, uh, "Boca-goers" that take those flights. They's MEAN and when trapped en-masse in a plane heading south (or worse, north .. because then they're coming home to the cold northeast .. OY !), those traits get just a little more exaggerated, even! I've always thought fllight crews working these flights should get hazard pay! And I'm not slamming Jewish people here ... the special assist WCHR conga-line (there were no less than 35 on our flight !!!) is a mosaic of all nationalities, races and religions ... and all over 80!, all not showing their love of flying and all taking verbal swipes at every airline employee within earshot whenever possible! Fun Fun Fun !!

SONG Flight 2042
Boeing 757 (unknown reg)
August 16, 2005
11:15am departure

We live in Connecticut and caught more than just the tail end of rush hour .down our stretch of I-95. I'm the type that believes in a nice early check-in, a leisurely pass thru security and a cocktail while plane spotting before boarding. My partner is of the "pack that morning and cut it to the last possible second" belief. Suffice it to say i was a little stressed sitting in that traffic especially since we still had to see about getting our seats re-arranged together as we weren't able to in advance. At 10:30, we curbside checked our bags and we walked into the DL LGA terminal which was teaming with people - and it was HOT! The lines at the counter were impossible, so I figured we'd have to sort out the increasingly dim-looking seat change problem at the gate. Then I looked at the massive buildup of humanity that was the linefor Security and i almost puked. I couldn't even imagine getting on the plane and having to ask the F/A's help in getting my brother next to at least one of us, but on top of everything else, he's a nervous flier and would not handle 12B very well while we were in 4C and 8A ... but then a DL agent came up to us and cheerfully said "C'mon this way -- let me get you thru that line a little quicker " and escorted us to the checkpoint for wheelchair pax. I've not flown with my brother since his becoming a "wheelchair pax" so I wasnt aware a special area exists. Thanks to that sweetheart of an agent, by now my blood pressure was starting to move back to normal and even though I didn't have time for my standard pre-flight cocktail, i was starting to relax! When I got to the gate and saw the aforementioned WCHR assist line i chuckled to myself and thought "this outta be interesting!". Surprisingly there was no one waiting at the podium, as it was almost time to start pre-boarding and I was greeted with a smile (this was LGA - New York City .. i almost had to go and sit down - this was twice now I was greeted with a smile!) and in the matter of seconds the agent somehow got us a row of 3 seats together 6DEF. I overheard him say to another agent "just call these two non-revs back up, I had to re-seat them to accomodate these 3 gentlemen". I was very impressed by his kindness and willingness to even attempt that as it was boarding time! Not only that, he offered to bring us on right then - - and proceeded to wheel my brother right past he KosherKlipper Conga Line to the doorway and down the jetway ... can I just tell you about the looks we got as we passed them all by!? I almost felt guilty - almost - and it passed quickly LOL!

We thanked the agent for his great service and were greeted by Yolanda and Ann at the door. Big cheerful smiles, and both asking what they could so to help. My brother can walk with assistance and thought hey had an aisle chair standing by in the jetway for us, it wasn't necessary since we were only a few steps away from our seats so I walked him p ourselves and they gate checked his wheelchair and stowed it below. What struck me immediately was how COOL the interior of the plane was. Absolutely spotless, contemporary music playing, and plush grey leather seats each with the side rim of the seat in a hot color ... some orange, some electric blue, some lime green and the colors extended to the bulkhead walls too. I love that idea, because nowadays too many carriers opt for that white, colorless bland bulkhead look and its so sterile and troopship looking. This added so much to the decor of the cabin. The crew exuded charm and a laid back but sincere friendliness without going over the top and beong corny or goofy. You could tell they enjoyed their jobs and were proud of their company and their plane. They even managed to make the standard "puh-leeeeeeeeeeeeeeez get outta the aisle and sittttt downnnn so we can get outta here" announcements in a friendly way without sounding snotty and b*tchy like most crews unfortunately do on other carriers (including mainline DL). Everyone on board and buttoned up and every one of the four F/A's indidually had come up and said a little something nice to my brother who they could tell was nervous. He eats this kind of attention up, of course (who doesn't!!?) and was starting to enjoy himself too. I, of course, still in such a state of shock over how incredibly smoothly things went from the minute we got into the terminal up to that point was now in full vacation mode (whats that song? "Dooon worry ... be happy ... " LOL)

Then the bad news from the Captain - - we were 16 in line for take off. Hey .. no sweat, we had no connecting flight to worry about and I had supplied myself with my junk reading (things I only read when I fly: The Globe, US, The STAR, National Enquirer, Weekly World News). But then after a good thirty minutes of hobbling forward and stopping after each plane ahead of us trickled out, both engines shut down. I knew this couldn't be good and it wasn't - the Captain explained that weather enroute meant he had to file a different flight plan with dispatch and ATC and would keep us updated. And he did - every few minutes for the next hour even when there was nothing new to report, he came on and said so - - and as anoying as weather delays can be, it made all the difference to hear from him throughout the delay rather than to just sit there for all that time now knowing anything. It's little touches of professionalism like that that say an awful lot. It shows that their passengers matter to them and for pilots , who are for the most part isolated up there without really any pax contact (lucky them LOL!) its often not a priority for them to worry about keeping the people in the back up to date. I'm sure the F/A's appreciate it most because then they dont have nasty old f*rts jabbing them with their canes going "Oy stewardesssssss! Are we ever taking off or whaaaaaaat?! See Harold? Sophie told me nevah to floy on this aihline ... ecccchhh!" (of course talking to Harold - who may or may not have even been sitting there- while still glaring at the F/A) LOL!

Yolanda, Ann, Cheryl and a fourth (who's name i didn't get) kept a great lid on things and kept tempers from flaring and after a while we finally got our clearance. Engines started and we were soon slamming our way down the runway and up. I had forgotten the awesome climb on the 757 even when fully loaded like this .. and we made a sharp bank over Shea Stadium which was a really cool view (can you tell who's the real kid when flying!?)

Service was the best and most genuinely welcoming and friendly as I have ever experienced in my years of flying. These F/A's were unbelievable -they chatted and kided around with people, all he while getting drinks and meals served WHILE our charming fellow passengers were busy trying to unnerve them with "Miiiiiiiisssssssss . its freeezing in heyah - i need a blanket or im gonna doyyyyy!" to "Miiiiiiiisssssss .. moy husband needs a pillow right away" to "Miiiiissssss . moy husband needs to get to the bathroom right away but you're in the way and he has to go right now, what with his condition and all ....." to complaining TO THE F/A's about how the passenger behind them "is kicking our seats incessantly and this extra discomfort contributes to moy husband's anxiety problems in enclosed social situations .." and on and on - AHHHHHHH! Mind you this was DURING the service - - and kept on all the way to PBI. We were in the comfy forward cabin with just 8 or so rows .. i can only imagine what it was like as these poor F/A's continued back into the main cabin and had to deal with another sea of these malcontents! But from what I saw they handled everyone with as much polish and class as I have ever witnessed. Of couse these old bitter-nasties kept grumbling and whining about other things - but was in awe of how this crew kept from even snapping back or getting impatient even!

A word about the food for purchase - the special featured meal that day was a large Spinach Salad with crumbled bacon and bleu cheese and, i think even grilled chicken strips , also a Chicken Breast over Sesame Noodles salad plate, a Jerk Chicken Sandwich plate, a Fruit and Cheese Plate, a Picnic Basket (assorted cheeses, cold cuts, i think, crackers and some fruit and a sweet) each were $7 ... we sampled the Spinach Salad, Fruit and Cheese and the Picnic Baskets and thought they were terrific and worth the $7.
AND the most amazing thing to me .... they SHAKE MARTINI'S RIGHT AT YOUR SEAT !!! This floored me!! And theyre not served in a mere plastic cup - - but a plastic funky colored Martini "glass" to boot ! We had to pick up a rental car upon arrival so limited ourselves to one (we were on vacation after all!) but I have never ever seen this done even in FirstClass ... much less on a "LowCost operator!"
The PTVs at each seat show 24+ channels, i think and have the flight follower and music channels and PayPerView movies. This is s o much more fun (and so much more along the lines of amenities!) then mainline DL (or anyone else for that matter!). After the meal service, the F/As did another pass with the beverage cart. This time it was a coffee tho!

All too soon, we were descending and landed about 2 hrs late but who cared -- we had a fantastic time and found ourselves a new favorite airline. The crew and the Captain again apologized for the delay ( a nice touch, since clearly it wasnt their fault!) and thanked us all again for flying SONG. And they meant it! In no time, my brother's chair was brought up in to the jetway and one of the F/A's insisted on taking my brother herself to the door (he was beaming over this !) and helped him into his chair.

This crew went SO far above and beyond not just for us, but for everyone on that plane, that I thanked them for their wonderful service and kindness and told them what a difference they made and that DL should be proud. I only regret that I didnt get the fourth F/A's name ,but the complimentary letter I wrote to DL showed the flight numbers/dates etc so hopefully she got an 'attagirl' too!

Return:
SONG Flight 2044
August 22
Departure 11:15am

Another rush to the gate, as I forgot to fill the rental car wit hgas before returning it - - again here we were running into the airport at 10:30 for an 11:15 flight! Again with seats not together - - only this time even worse - - 21A, 11A and 4E, i think! HOSED! By the time we cleared security, we got to the gate but they had already started general boarding and there was no agent at the podium. I thought that this time we were really goingto have to fend for ourselves and rely on the kindness of other pax (on this flight? the reverse KoskerKlipper? these same pax even more sour because they had to leave Boca and go back to Brooklyn?!) But one of the agents looked over and saw us and asked "are you gentlemen the Ward party?" to which we nodded our heads and she said "we noticed you werent together, but we took the liberty of reserving 2DEF for you, will that be OK?" Again i was floored by the consideration. We thanked them profusely and headed down the jetway as they kindly held up the pax behind us just for a minute or two so we wouldnt feel rushed transferring my brother from his wheelchair into the cabin.

Another wonderful crew (Mario being the standout here -- he's an absolute rit on the PA! and even did a little Flamenco-like dance in the aisle during the taxi out!) , we loved the PTVs, there was no delay whatsoever , and soon enough we were home. I still had my SONG shaken-at-seat martini, as my partner and I decided that will be our new tradition when on SONG! I just wish we could fly everywhere we might go on them as this was a wonderful experience all around.

We wish Delta all the success it rightfully deserves as we know its a financially troubling time. But they truly have a winner with SONG and we thank them and all the employees we had the pleasure of being so well cared for by our most sincere thanks. They made what at first seemed a daunting experience (my brothers physical condition and requirements - and not knowing really how difficult it might be) a wonderful one for us - particularly my brother Russ, who came such a long way and who really deserved this trip! He's now got his DL FF card and is ready for the next trip on SONG at the end of OCT! And for his big brother: SONG , get that shaker ready!!

I can't agree enough that Song is an extremely pleasant way to fly. The planes, crew, food and entertainment are top notch to me. I'm looking forward to another cross country flight on Song in the near future.

What a great trip report and what a treat for you all, especially your brother. I haven't had the honour of flying SONG yet, but am looking forward even more to the opportunity. That Martini at the seat idea is great and look forward to having one of those.


Where am I going, and why am I in this handbasket?

Thanks for the kind words, Airbuff ... i was a little worried the report was a bit too wordy, particularly due to the shortage of pics !

I know SONG doesn't (yet) fly to Canada, but if you're able to work ou a trip on them, you won't be disappointed. I just hope that if DL really is filing for Chapter 11 that Song won't shrink or have to suffer cutbacks in any way.

Glad you enjoyed my first Trip Report - you're my first critic (thanks for being a nice one)!

As a New York Jew I find your title offensive and not in any way "affectionate". I've flown New York-Florida routes and while some of the passengers may be demanding, the idea that you'd group them all as Jews really bothers me. Good report otherwise.

Loosen up and laugh a little ... jeez .. and read a little more carefully next time before you pounce on someone.

OH .. one more thing .... we're half Jewish on our mother's side. That changes things a little now, doesn't it?

Tony, I would love to see them come to Canada. I mean Toronto could sure use a service like SONG. I really did like your report. I especially like what you did for your brother. I bet while he may have been a bit scared, it is something you will both remember "fondly" forever.

Thanks again Airbuff -- and yes it was a great experience for him - and most importantly it made him see that in spite of his assistance requirements now, there are still no obstacles too great .. we just adopt new techniques of dealing with things that weren't challenges before. We (with the help of wonderful people like the employees I mentioned) have always strived to make my brother not feel 'different' and though we have to contend with the stares sometimes from other kids (who I politely but sternly tell, preferably with their parents litening, "don't ever stare at other people, its rude .."), we succeed pretty well. We're so fortunate to have him with us after his ordeal, we make the absolute most of every minute and we have fun and laugh as much as we can - life throws enough at you, so whoneeds to sweat the small stuff!

Re: our next SONG trip, it's at the end of OCT .. the 3 of us flying BDL (Hartford)-PBI and back .. and get this ...if itwere possible, the fare is even LOWER ... its only $49.00 each way ... this is way, way too good to be true.

My thoughts are with all the DL employees riht now too - - its a scary time, but this airline SO deserves to make it through ... and they will! DL is just not one that'll disappear!

I know .. I've been called a few of them myself .. but hey none of what I typed was any kind of slam based on religion . If it sounded like a slam on the embarassing, buffoonish and downright rude behavior of the people mentioned, then so be it. They should be ashamed of themselves.

Besides how do i know if the ones I quoted were Jewish or Italian or mixed? I was impersonating a heavy "New Yawk" accent . . hopefully the humor of the whole thing came through to most people.

Bottom line is: wonderful flights, great service and plane, and flight crews with the most unbelievable patience I've ever seen!

But to smooth things over with all those tightly wound types who might be offended in the future, I'll refer to those flights not as KosherKlipper, but as, uh, um ... lets think... how bout the "BocaBus"? Tony  dopey

A hypothetical trip report FagFlight on Frontier DEN-SFO

To justify this I might say an airline employee used this term to describe these flights in the 80's

This probably wouldn't offend me - it would surprise me more than anything that A.net would allow it. I worked behing the ticket counter at USAirways Express in NewHaven CT (most of it as a Passenger Service Supervisor) for 8 years -- Ihave been called every name under the sun .. trust.

But remember one thing: calling a gay person a fag is akin to calling a black person a ni**er or a Latino a sp*c or an asian person, blah, you get the drift.

I wasn't calling a group of people anything in mytitle. How is the term Kosher offensive to Jewish people? Huh? Re-read my entire report and my description of what the KosherKlipper is and we'll talk more. Besides ... we're calling it the BOCABus now, remember ! Lighten up, bubalah ... and remember I can use that term cuz my Mom was Jewish!

Tony,

First of all, great report. I truly did not notice the absence of pictures, your descriptions were so vivid.

Second, your trip provides another great example that there are plenty of professionals out there in our industry who go that extra little step to really make a trip special. No excuses about how the passengers are dressed; no complaints about the downturns in the industry. Instead, these folks ask themselves a very simple question: What can I do, personally, to make my company and my job a success?

Self-accountability. Sounds like there are some folks at Song who get it!

I look forward to your next report and thanks for spreading some good news.

Chris

I agree...I am also Jewish and while I will admit there are people like that, espically in snowbird season, this is a very business flight and there are many others on the flight...winter is different, but now is still too early for that.

WWWWWWaaaait a sec here ... you're how old ? Uh, a senior in HIGH SCHOOL i think your profile says ? An expert, then!

Secondly .. were you on the flight I was on? No.

Lastly... LGA-PBI a business route? Sweetie, get your little hiney out to PBI some day and watch who boards those NYC bound planes. It's all leisure .. Jews, Catholics, Protestants, Muslims, Episcopalians, Mormons (well..) .. you ain't gonna see a suit and tie in the bunch!

So There!

I'm a freshman in college who is too lazy to change his profile
Secondly, I know people at BDL who travel back and forth to PBI..my age...

Thirdly, there are a LIT of businesses in PBI

Forthly, I am not saying old people don't fly that flight...but I am saying that there is a fair share of business people on that flight...Winter is different, but this time of year it is a good mix...

And fifthly what gives you right to question me and put my age in this? I happen to travel to FLL which actually has a common crowd and I happen to have family near PBI and I have noticed it getting younger and attracting more businesses...so while you live in NYC and only come down every so often, I live there...I know the crowd...age has nothing to do with it...and bottom line, there is as much business in PBI as there is in FLL and the flight is a mix

Sixthly, you did stereotype and it was wrong

AND SEVENTHLY: DON'T YOU DARE CALL ME SWEETIE!!!!

To those of you who enjoyed my Trip report and took it for what it was worth (praise for Song) and who chuckled a little at me making a lil fun of some people whose behavior warranted it ... and who offered up your kind comments to me, I thank you very much; i truly appreciated it.

To the rest of you uptight, overly politically correct (and/or homophobic) ones on here who jump to criticize before thoroughly reading someone's report ... get a life - you're just sad and OMFG drop the "i'm offended at your stereotyping and slamming of my religion and blah blah blah ... ".

To the rest of you uptight, overly politically correct (and/or homophobic) ones on here who jump to criticize before thoroughly reading someone's report ... get a life -

Um, it is my religion and I really enjoyed the report. I found it to be funny, but distatsteful...too many people think that its just old Jewish people in PBI...its not! I enjoyed the report and I enjoy song.

great report....I love flying Song. most times it's MCO-JFK, although I've done MCO-LGA.....my wife are looking to do MCO-BOS next year for a few days up there. Maybe DL will revamp and just use their Song business model as the primary brand and workings.....enjoyed the report though.

Great report....I think if you enjoyed the flight attendants so much, you should rewrite this to Song/Delta customer service because those FA's need some praise during these hardtimes. Good report.
