CJ (my Build-A-Bear buddy since August of 2006) has a story and he's asking you what your story is!? I was flying back non-stop from JFK to SFO and had CJ in hand when checking in at the First Class queue and by the time we made it to the gate and started boarding, CJ was already known to the cabin crew who grabbed him up and took both myself and CJ to my seat, except they had the seat next to mine made to accommodate CJ during the flight across the country and back home into SFO. United didn't sell all of the seats in the cabin and moved a few passengers around to have the seat next to mine open and so CJ had a place to be during the flight. This happened seven years ago today on 26 May 2010 and the events gets a bit more into my personal life, as the reason I have CJ and he goes everywhere when I travel is due to a small plane incident that happened in early Summer 2006 and United and American have always made sure to assist anyway they can when I flew weekly for work, as I'm terrified of being in a plane. One perk for CJ is that more often than not he gets hand fluffed as we're taken to our seats and if a seat is unsold they made sure at least CJ had a comfy flight between San Francisco and NYC.
This happened to be one of the times the cabin crew wanted to snap a photo of how cute it was he got his own ticketed seat and I don't make a fuss so this is a handful of photos on a plane I have taken in eleven years!
