Employee Spotlight

Captain David Lund

SkyWest CRJ Captain David Lund exemplified SkyWest’s guiding principles of showing respect and providing excellent service by turning a bad day for a passenger into his best flight ever. After forgetting an item while going through security, the passenger did not realize his mistake until he was boarding his flight. After notifying the flight attendant – who then notified the gate agent – TSA confirmed they had the passengers missing item. However, there was not enough time to go back for it. That was until Captain Lund found out about it and sprinted through the airport to pick up the item with just seconds to spare. Captain Lund not only went the extra mile, but made a lasting impression on the frequent flyer who noted that he’s “rarely seen such an act of amazing customer service.”
