Flight attendant spills drinks on American Airlines CEO

Ever had a really bad day on the job?

American Airlines flight attendant Maddie Peters has a story to top them all after a mortifying work incident last week.

Peters, 28, says she had never once in her four years on the job spilled a drink on a passenger – until one fateful day, when she spilled several on American Airlines CEO Doug Parker.

Yes, a direct hit on her airline’s top boss with a full tray of drinks.

She and the rest of the crew on the flight from Phoenix to Dallas had been warned that the CEO would be flying with them that day.

Peters told NBC News; “We knew he was going to be on board and had to be on our best behavior.”

Story time y’all! Incase you missed it. The other day I was working a flight to Dallas. I had our CEO (Doug Parker) on my flight. I was serving drinks during boarding to the first class cabin. I had a full tray with drinks on it, when the passenger in front of me stops in the aisle and backs up. He bumps into the tray and the drinks go flying. Guys I have worked for American Airlines for 4 years, and not once have I ever spilt a drink on a passenger. Guess who they land on. Half of them went all over me, the other half in Doug’s lap. I WAS MORTIFIED. I wanted to drop dead right there in the aisle. (Like am I still employed?!) I’m still slightly traumatized/embarrassed. Luckily he was super cool, and a good sport about it. He later came back and we chatted for a little, and joked about it the rest of the flight. When he was getting off the plane he told me he’d never forget me…. guess that’s a good thing right? Most people never even meet their CEO let alone shower them with beverages. But it’s too good of a story not to tell. Accidents happen. ??‍♀️ OOPS

Despite her best efforts and best behaviour, disaster struck.

Peters was serving drinks in the first class cabin when another passenger stopped in front of her, then backed into her.

Both she and the “big boss” were both doused with alcohol.

Maddie described simultaneously wanting “to drop dead” and worrying “Like am I still employed!?”

“Most people never even meet their CEO let alone shower them with beverages,” she shared on Instagram, along with a picture of the pair looking like fast friends.

“I asked him, ‘Am I fired?’ and he said, ‘Of course not,'” she said.

“When he was getting off the plane he told me he’d never forget me … guess that’s a good thing, right?”
