HR Strange But True!
March 17, 2009

While other kids wanted to be cowboys and firefighters, Gailen David has wanted to run an airline since he was 9 years old. Now the 30-year airline veteran, self-dubbed The Sky Steward, is Twittering, YouTubing, and blogging a campaign to become America's Next Airline CEO.

A video, complete with flags and “Hail to the Chief,” where the candidate explains his platform of “a vision of a new, brighter air travel” that will bring back hospitality to passengers and morale to employees, can be viewed here.

According to a press release, David calls his vision Jetiquette, the return to “a more civilized manner of traveling.”

An author, travel writer, public speaker, and customer experience expert, David says he would bring “passion” to the job and reestablish air travel as a positive experience, rather than just “counting beans.”

He promises his future employees accountability, as well as recognition and bonuses for their efforts in giving passengers the type of service they deserve.

He says he believes if customers and workers “join him as he marches to the boardroom, [he can] breathe new life into the U.S. airline industry.”
