Delta follows through with $10,000 promise ~x

Delta Air Lines gave the Juneau Community Foundation $10,000 for the Augustus Brown Swimming Pool last night. The check presentation coincided with the arrival of Delta’s first flight from Seattle to Juneau.
Delta’s Seattle Vice President Mike Medeiros pledged the amount during a CBJ assembly meeting in April, causing the packed city hall chambers to erupt in cheers. At the time, city manager Kim Kiefer had proposed temporarily closing the downtown pool to save the city money during a tight budget year.
Medeiros says the donation announcement was not planned. His purpose for being at the meeting that night was to introduce himself to the assembly. He had no idea city hall would be packed with pool supporters.
“As I got up and addressed the crowd I thought, ‘You know, this is important for us to demonstrate as a company that we want to be more than an airline that serves Juneau, we want to be a community partner.’ And I thought on the spot that this is a great way to step up and show that we can help contribute to something good in the community of Juneau,” Medeiros says.

Delta’s first Boeing 767, named “The Spirit of Delta,” was purchased by employees to show appreciation for their company. She’s currently on display at the Delta Heritage Museum. #throwbackthursdays [~x]

The effort, called Project 767, was spearheaded by three Delta flight attendants to show the employees’ appreciation to Delta for “solid management and strong leadership during the first years following airline deregulation.”

“We can’t fight this feeling any longer, we just love to fly!” [Delta]

Sounds quite familiar to their old “We love to fly, and it shows” slogan in the late 80s!
