John began his speech by telling the passengers that today was his final flight and that he would be retiring after the plane touched ground in Pittsburgh. He then persisted to say that he wanted to give a warm thank you to everyone who was able to be on the flight and that he had a special gift for his one millionth passenger who was on the plane.

You seen, John did a little research and found out the amount that the passenger had paid for her ticket and reimbursed her with an envelope full of money. He also bought her a bottle of champagne and signed her boarding pass. He felt that this would be a great way to end a very happy and fruitful career with the airline.

After the fun was over, he moved back to the cockpit where he did his very last flight from Denver to Pittsburg—one that he (and his passengers) will not forget for a very long time!
