Young Girl In Cancer Remission Is Named “The Princess Of Delta”

Delta has ghosted many of its top elites during the pandemic letting the phone go to voicemail. Voicemail after four rings, they’re not there. After two rings they didn’t want to talk to you.

Nonetheless, the airline does treat some customers like royalty. A couple of years ago they crowned one lucky passenger the Biscoff Queen. Now they’ve officially crowned one young passenger “The Princess of Delta.”

The young girl has been battling a rare soft tissue cancer for a year. She and her family flew Delta to Orlando. It was her first-ever flight. She got to visit the cockpit, had a celebration at her seat. And she was crowned at the gate. Now that she’s in remission she’ll probably be a loyal Delta customer for years to come.

I’ll just add that it feels good to do good things and we should all strive to make a small difference in people’s lives whenever we can. Although not always with a crown. A passenger with a crown on American or JetBlue has a whole different meaning, of course.
