Although they did not meet on an airplane, Delta did bring Alex and Ed together. Both were based in Boston and on March 7, 1980, they met at an airline party. A nighttime stroll around Quincy Market led to their first real date at a Boston harbor-side restaurant and their engagement in Bermuda. This October, they will celebrate their 30th wedding anniversary.
Their mutual love of travel, meeting new people, and exploring new places never gets old for them. On the job, they have worked flights in the United States, to and from Canada, Mexico, Central and South America, Africa and many of the major European cities. In 2011, they even celebrated their 28th wedding anniversary on a crew layover in Madrid.
During their off time, they also love to explore new destinations like a photographic safari in East Africa, hiking in New Zealand, touring Sri Lanka, skiing in the Alps, swimming in the South China Sea, white-water rafting in the Andes, walking in Death Valley and cruising the Mediterranean. Together they have explored over 50 countries. Amazingly, airports and airplanes are still fun for them.
Their two most memorable trips were participating in Delta’s International Habitat for Humanity builds in Chiang Mai, Thailand, and El Monte, Chile.
This Valentine’s Day they will spend apart working flights to separate continents. When they return, they look forward to sharing their new discoveries.
Alex and Ed also have two adult children who also share their love of travel.
Congratulations Alex and Ed!
