Christmas was coming and so was Winter Storm Elliott as the SAS team worked furiously in Detroit to install a wide-body Wi-Fi access stand for Delta Airlines.
The crew arrived Tuesday, Dec. 20, knowing the threat of a winter storm might wreak havoc on getting the job done, and getting back home for the holidays with their families.
Coy, Randy and Gary were on site, making great progress on the install when our worst fear happened. A shipping mix-up caused the wrong work cage to be delivered, grinding progress to a halt. But like so many times when our team rallies, they did so again.
Back at headquarters, Amber and Greg Jupin located the material, had it loaded, and Greg drove 400 miles through the early hours of Thursday morning to assure the right material arrived and the job continued on time. In fact, we beat the install deadline.
The scramble home was just that. Because we finished early, we were able to move our return flights to late Thursday. We encountered a few hours delay but avoided “Cancel Friday” when huge numbers of flights were scrapped. We all made it home for Christmas eve and Christmas day with our families. It was a job well-done, illustrating the dedication our staff has to making it work and delivering on time.
