Readers might remember last week’s story of Kate, an iPad owner who left her tablet on a U.S. Airways plane after an early morning flight, and was told by an airline employee that she’d never see her iPad again. We love delivering good news — she’s getting it back because of a good Samaritan.
And not just any good Samaritan, the pilot of her flight himself reached out to Kate.
Just a quick update with some amazing news: Someone found my iPad and is sending it back to me this weekend! I got a call from [redacted], US Airways pilot, who clearly didn’t trust the airline’s lost & found system, either, because rather than turning it in, he gave a quick look through it, found my contact information, and called me this morning to see about returning it. Take THAT, naysayers. Good Samaritans do exist.
Come on, let the warm and fuzzy feelings of the shared human experience wash over you, just this once.
