New ‘Extra Mile’ initiative aims to show support and gratitude for growing number of in-flight incidents

PARSIPPANY, NJ, May 17, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Unruly passengers. Oversold flights. Weather delays. Every year, flight attendants see and deal with all of this. Today, ahead of the busy summer travel season, Wyndham®, the namesake brand of the world’s largest hotel franchise company, is looking to show its appreciation for aviation’s first responders with the new “Extra Mile ” of the brand.

Created in collaboration with a television personality and a former flight attendant, Laura Laneon May 31st2022—International Flight Attendant Day—Wyndham will celebrate attendants as they check in at select hotels across the United States, surprising and delighting them with $10 gift cards to popular retailers like Starbucks® and Amazon®, while others will receive a free weekend at the Wyndham hotel of their choice. All gifts will be awarded in the form of Wyndham Rewards® points, with 1,000 gifts to be given away.

“Our Wyndham team members constantly go the extra mile and so do our sky travel counterparts, many of whom are the first point of contact on our guests’ journey to us,” said Jürgen Schäfers, Wyndham brand leader and vice president of operations. “With thousands of attendants staying at Wyndham, often between routes, it’s our way of saying thank you and letting them know we appreciate all they do.”

Wyndham’s Extra Mile initiative follows a multi-year increase in airline-related incidents, which in the past year alone have increased more than 112%, according to the Federal Aviation Administration.

“Being a flight attendant can be a thankless job. The selflessness, calmness and confidence that these men and women exude are so often overlooked,” Lane said. “That’s why I chose to team up with Wyndham on this initiative. They are people who, every day, overcome challenges and adversity to deliver exceptional experiences to keep travelers safe. They deserve to be celebrated, and I’m so happy that with the help of Wyndham, we’re able to do just that.”

In addition to on-site gifts at its hotels, Wyndham is also accepting online nominations to recognize an additional deserving flight attendant with a 7-night stay at any Wyndham hotel (provided in the form of Wyndham Rewards points) plus a Year Free Upgrade to Wyndham Rewards Diamond Membership, which includes benefits such as free Wi-Fi, early check-in, late check-out, suite upgrades, rental car upgrades and more.

Now through May 31, 2022those looking to nominate a friend, family member, colleague – or even themselves – can submit a short essay of at least 100 words to [email protected]. Submissions should provide a window into how the flight attendant went the extra mile to provide exceptional passenger service. Entries must comply with the official rules and must include a photo of the flight attendant in uniform, the full name and email address of the nominator and flight attendant, and the place of residence of the entrant. flight attendant (city and state) and airline name.

Wyndham will select the winning flight attendant from all nominations on or about June 17, 2022. No purchase is necessary to enter and the approximate retail value of the prize is $1,050. To be eligible to receive any of the brand gifts upon check-in, customers must be an active member of the airline’s crew and have an active reservation for May 31, 2022 at a participating institution.
