Video: United Captain Makes Heartfelt Speech To Thank Medical Personnel

by SharonKurheg

The Captain of a United flight took control of the gate attendants’ microphone before a flight to thank the medical personnel who were going to board his plane. The moment was caught on video by CBS News Transportation Correspondent Kris Van Cleave.

What anyone “should” do is subjective. I think what he did was just perfect.
