A Delta Air Lines agent at New York JFK spoke to passengers waiting to board for Los Angeles shortly after learning about the death of Kobe Bryant and his daughter and the rest of the passengers on board a helicopter on Sunday.
The agent, Courtney, implored passengers to cherish the people most important to them in their lives. She told them “if there is someone you haven’t spoken to today, call them. If there is someone you haven’t reached out to in a while, call them” — and not to text, “We’ve got to pick the phone up.”

And she said that’s what they’re about at Delta, “Here at Delta we celebrate life and we celebrate love.” As for the airline, they approved of the message.
It’s incredible what a few kind words can do. Just another reminder that the world could always use a little more positivity, and we’re so glad you got it here.
