Pilots fly passengers thousands of feet into the air and land massive airplanes, but they rarely receive more than a cursory
"thanks" at the door.
After last week's Germanwings plane crash at the hand of its copilot, a traveler, known only as Bethanie, penned a note to her pilots during a flight.
The handwritten note, tweeted by the pilots' colleague, Jai Dillon, shows an incredible amount of compassion for airline employees doing a difficult – but often thankless – job.
Dillon was reached out to for comment, but he declined to share names or locations for security reasons.
He added, however,
Perhaps we all owe our pilots a little more thanks for the challenging job they do.
Dillon, a pilot himself, shared the letter on Twitter.
