Flight Attendant Spills Drinks on American Airlines CEO

It’s sort of a rite-of-passage, to look silly or make a mistake in front of your boss.  But for flight attendant, Maddie Peters, her mistake made the NBC Nightly News.

Peters was serving drinks in first class last week on a flight to Dallas when a passenger accidentally bumped her arm, causing her tray of drinks to fall and coincidently, spill into American Airlines CEO Doug Parker.

Spilling drinks all over the company’s CEO sounds like a nightmare, but luckily American Airlines has a pretty kind CEO and Parker laughed off the incident and had a good laugh with the crew once the other passengers were taken care of.

“Luckily he was super cool, and a good sport about it,” Peters said on Instagram. “He later came back and we chatted for a little, and joked about it the rest of the flight. When he was getting off the plane, he told me he’d never forget me…. guess that’s a good thing, right?”
