As the impact of the COVID-19 virus continues to devastate the aviation industry, many of us are asking, “How Can I Help?” Congress, federal and local government agencies are weighing decisions which could make or break our businesses.

Now is the time for you to be empowered, speak up and give voice to the impact of this pandemic on your businesses and employees.

A strong, unified voice is the best opportunity we have in saving the travel experience amid the impact #COVID19 is having on the aviation industry.

Mayor Wellington E. Webb, former Denver, CO Mayor has shared an op-ed titled "After the Coronavirus Will Airport Concessions Survive?" You can read the full op-ed here: http://ow.ly/fKzA30qwS8P

Mayor Wellington E. Webb served three terms as the 42nd Mayor of Denver, CO. He built 85% of Denver International Airport, created a minority and women’s airport concession program, which became a national model.

"Think of your home airport and all the hard working people employed by every concession you see. Don’t let their livelihoods become extinct. Give them a real chance to continue to be an important aspect of every airport nationwide." #savethetravelexperience #covid19

Hello Sebastian I am still not sure if you received my emails as to why I was unable to make the interview on Friday 12/21 at 1:30. As I initially wrote that my girlfriend was admitted to the hospital on 12/20 I was subsequently seen by triage on 12/21 for which I have the documentation. If there are no more available time slots to be seen I do understand. If there are I will be in Boston on 12/24 from 11 to 2 realizing it is Christmas Eve. Again, my apologies Robert Fitzgerald
Recognizing Juan Figueroa for wining the employee passion award for July At Osteria at LAX. #veryproud
I have reached out numerous times to John Jensen, through emails and phone, who returned my call once and then has disappeared regarding our horrible experience and requesting that Food Travel Experts make good. His lack of concern and responsiveness has led to my family's taking to social media. At Blue Point at JFK, we ordered 2 inexpensive glasses of wine. The waitress said you were out and offered a "similar" wine. As time came to board, we had trouble finding her. When she finally appeared with the check, it was close to $60!!!! It was not close to the price of the wine we originally requested and she gave us 2 LARGE glasses which we did not ask for either. When we tried to locate her, again, not to be found so we were stuck with the bill. THIS IS UNCONSCIONABLE! On all counts. Shame on you FOOD TRAVEL EXPERTS. You are experts at cheating the customer!
Spending Thanksgiving with an amazing team, and the best crew of over 4,000 friends with American Airlines. Service from the heart, is what we do best.

Do not eat at Midway's Des Colores burrito joint. Food sucks. Staff wipe their runny noses with "sanitary" rubber gloves. And a rice and bean burrito is thirteen freaking dollars!! 100% horrible, all around. By pass this crap and eat at one of the dozen pizza joints. Win-win.
Thank you SSP America for great food and service when I had a layover in Chicago! I'll stop by every time I make it to Chicago. Yummy food and smiling faces. 😁
