employee13American Airlines Ramp Crew Chief Ian Allen, a City of Miami resident, was named Miami International Airport’s August Employee of the Month for helping a group of passengers on a delayed flight get their bags on different connections - all after his shift had already ended.

While working a delayed flight on July 3, Allen overheard a passenger desperately seeking to re-book her departure so she wouldn’t miss her connecting flight out of the country, which was only available three times per week. Even though his shift had ended, Allen offered to locate the checked bag, re-tag it and personally deliver it to her new flight. Afterwards, he located the passenger, reassured her that her baggage was on her flight and gave her the claim check.
