Leo and the Redcoats

Flying home last night.. I was talking to a Red Coat in ATL. Here is his story. I hope it is true...I know I loved it.

(Disclaimer---I have no idea if it is true or false, but he seemed genuine)

Uncle Leo was flying to DC. Something happened and flight was canceled.

He got of plane and no Red Coats around.

Found supervisor who either did not know his uncle Leo or was pissed enough to say.. "Don't you know that Delta is getting rid of them" Leo went livid

Typical airline exec reaction:

get mad when someone tells the truth

here goes......

Hey, Hey, We're the Redcoats

Here we come,
Walking out the gate,
We get the funniest looks from
Passengers that wait.

Hey, hey, we're the Redcoats,
And people say we helped a bunch,
But we will soon all be gone
To help solve Delta's cash crunch.

We did whatever we had to,
Got people where they had to go,
Booked em, Bumped em, no matter the fare,
Leo says that's a no-no.

Hey, hey, we're the Redcoats,
And people say we helped a bunch,
But we will soon all be gone
To help solve Delta's cash crunch.

We're just trying to be helpful,
But you'd better come and say goodbye,
Soon we're going to be history
And you'll find another way to fly.

Oh...
Anytime,
Or anywhere,
Just look over your shoulder,
No one will be standing there.

Hey, hey, we're the Redcoats,
And people say we helped a bunch,
But we will soon all be gone
To help solve Delta's cash crunch.

We used to be the pride of Delta,
Our colors were for all to see,
Management has new expectations
And you'll get no help for free.

Hey, hey, we're the Redcoats,
And people say we helped a bunch,
But we will soon all be gone
To help solve Delta's cash crunch.
Hey, hey, we're the Redcoats...
Hey, hey, we're the Redcoats...
