When you share the love for travel and work together, mother and daughter

Both of my parents worked for Delta. My dad worked in Airport Customer Service (retired in 2005) and my mom was a Flight Attendant. After growing up as a Delta kid, it only made sense for me to apply to the company that had given my parents each other and the opportunity to explore the world.

When I graduated from Initial Training in May of 2017, my mom was the one to pin my wings. I went off to Boston to begin my career and settle into the Flight Attendant lifestyle. My mom and I always dreamed of picking trips to work together, to continue our adventures, but she was based in Atlanta, which made working together almost impossible.

Then 2020 happened. I was questioning if I would have a job by the end of the year, and my mom was debating retirement. Eventually, my mom made the selfless decision to hang up her wings after 42 years and retire from the job she loved. When she told me her decision, I asked if she was sure. With tears in her eyes, she told me she’d make the same decision a hundred times over if her retirement meant I might get to keep flying. We were able to work one trip together in the three years that our careers overlapped.

I will always be grateful for the years we shared at the company, but more than that, I’m grateful for the love of aviation I inherited from both of my parents.” – Grace M. – Flight Attendant, BOS.
