I just wanted to tell everyone about the flights on Hooters Air. My wife and I flew up from Atlanta to Myrtle Beach on the first revenue flight on March 6th. There was only 6 paying passengers and a plane load of VIPs. It was our 17th wedding anniversary and they treated us like VIPs !! The flight boarded in Atlanta at concourse B gate 17 ( right in the middle of Delta land ). Hooters was serving up their famous wings, celery and carrot sticks and cake. We boarding ontime but the flight was about 5 minutes late getting away from the gate. But if you know Atlanta that is nothing ! It was really kind of cool seeing the ramp crews looking at our plane as it taxied to the active. People were taking a second look to make sure what they were looking at.
Once the aircraft tookoff everyone on board started clapping. The flight was a quick 1 hour flying time from Atlanta. The CEO of Hooters and the President of Hooters Air were seating right in front of us and they were extremely nice to my wife and I. The flight was a little bumpy, weather wise, but the flight attendants handled it like the PROS they are !!. We did have to ambassadors on board with us. They were dressed in their Hooters uniforms. The girls greeted everyone when they come aboard. They held a little trivia game for prizes during the flight.
We arrived in Myrtle Beach on schedule and as we deplaned everyone was handed a $ 5.00 gift card for use at any Hooters restaurant. Our flight back to Atlanta this morning went off without a hitch. We had 19 passengers on the flight and once everyone on was they closed the door and we departed about 5 minutes early. You just have to love a smaller airport. The flight back to Atlanta was 1 hour 3 minutes in duration. The ambassadors again held a trivia game and I won a Hooters Air t-shirt ! Guess all those years going to Hooters finally paid off
I took some pictures with my new digital camera and I will post them as soon as I can get my computer to accept the download. Guess I am doing something wrong.. Who knows... But just as soon as I figure it out I will get them online for everyone to see.
Sorry this was a long post but I wanted everyone to know what a great time we had !!
