The wife decided to explore the terminal and mistakenly took an elevator that lead her out of the secure area. Unable to return to the gate area where she left her husband, she sought out help from Travelers Aid in the domestic baggage claim area. The Travelers Aid representative called building security and Alexander Spurling responded to the call by personally going out to the gate to look for the husband and assist him to the baggage area. His quick response and caring approach supported the man, a stroke survivor, who was a little unsteady and unable to carry the bags his wife had left in his care. Thanks, Alexander!

Comments: Mr. Qureshi was working the check-in desk for an Air India Re-Patriation flight. I had come across an elderly gentleman who worked his way in the queue to the top of the TSA security line when he informed the agent he wanted to check his bag. The gentleman did not speak English and he needed to go to airline check-in to check his bag for the flight. I escorted the gentleman to the check-in line and brought him to Mr. Qureshi. Mr. Qureshi was able to speak to the gentleman in his native language and it was determined that he had not yet been processed for the flight. The Indian Gov't required various forms to be filled out and a thermal check for each passenger. When Mr. Qureshi explained the process to the passenger, it was clear he was confused and did not understand what needed to be done to process for the flight. Mr. Qureshi observed this and personally escorted the passenger through each phase of the process and assisted him when needed. When the process was completed, he took the time to escort the passenger to the top of the security line (as he had already waited his time in the queue). Mr. Qureshi clearly went above and beyond to ensure this elderly and confused passenger was safely processed and was able to make his flight back home to India. Because of this personal attention to our passengers, Mr. Qureshi is deserving of a We Soar Higher Award.

Employee: Jorge Ruiz
Work Location: Parking
Comments: During my WE SOAR Customer Service Training Class, I was explaining to the employees about nominating their peers for a job well done. It was bought to my attention by several employees about the fast actions by Mr. Ruiz to assist a customer in need. While working in Valet a customer and his family exited the elevator and as they did so, the father starting having a seizure. Mr. Ruiz who has a daughter that also suffers from seizures immediately went over to assist. He asked the patron's wife if he could help and if her husband had a wallet. She retrieved his wallet and he told her to place it in his mouth. By doing this the patron did not bring any harm to himself. The customer recovered and he and his family was grateful for Mr. Ruiz's help. I am submitting this because his fellow co-workers said they do not have computers to nominate Mr. Ruiz for a well deserved recognition.
