MAN’S BEST FRIEND
I fly several segments a week and always look forward to the new American Way. The March 15 edition was of the usual quality, but the article “A Dog’s Life” by Carlton Stowers was outstanding. I don’t know how any dog lover could read it without tearing up. I missed my best friend Max (my awesome dog that we rescued two years ago) a little more. Hachiko’s loyalty and dedication were amazing. Thanks for publishing the great article.
I especially enjoyed the article “Close Encounters” by Jordan Rane in the March 1 issue. As I read about the author’s experiences, I was thinking about the excitement of being close enough to be able to look into the animals’ eyes or experience the immensity of their presence. The photography was appreciated for including pictures of these unique creatures and scenery of where they are found, along with little maps to show global location. After reading this article, I felt enticed to further explore the world traveling with American Airlines.
My three young children always want to hear of my “adventures” on the road, so I want to thank you for providing such wonderful variety in American Way. In the March 1 issue, the “Close Encounters” article provided us with a great discussion about unique animals and faraway, exciting places (that they want to visit now too). We are making a trip to Washington, D.C., soon, and they can’t wait to guess which exhibits are Terry Chase creations [“A Day at the Museum”] and examine the fine details. Finally, they were amazed by the story of the Elfego Baca Shoot [“Stroke of (Evil) Genius”]. I can’t wait to see the next issue and share more stories with my family.
THE CLOTHES MAKE THE MAN
I just finished reading “The Spanx Experiment” in the Feb. 15 issue. Over the prior week, I attended the Tire Industry Association’s annual convention in Miami, then the Republic Waste meetings in Phoenix. At neither of these two events would anyone expect the conversation to turn to men’s fashion, let alone to the topic of Spanx. This product was discussed at both meetings, and the genesis was your magazine. Just imagine a bunch of tire guys and trash guys sitting and reviewing the merits of Spanx. We are truly becoming a highly evolved society! It wasn’t until my return flight that I was able to read the full article and laugh out loud while recalling the conversations of the prior week. Whether or not anyone will admit to wearing Spanx, they sure have gotten a lot of free advertising thanks to AA. Spanx a lot! Keep up the great work in finding truly unique and interesting topics.
