Lately, I've been seeing his face around all the various airport terminals...This big guy who always has a smile on his face, moseying to his next flight, and you just know he'd be great to fly with. Last week, I finally got the pleasure of having Ludi on my crew, and for 4 days, all we did was laugh.
My complete adoration of this man began when the safety video began. Virgin just debuted it's brand spanking new safety video: a song & dance video. Now, the higher ups have tried to encourage us to "have fun with it", dance along, "make it your own" kinda thing. I don't know what I expected, as this was my first time working a trip since the new demo was released. To my delight, I looked to the front of the cabin after starting the video, and saw Ludi, smiling away, bouncing to the music, and making every single passenger in first class (and half of those in main cabin) cheer, smile and bounce along with him. I knew this was going to be a good trip.
He was a great sport with the video every time, watching Rhonda and I dancing along with him in the back and laughing at the hilarity of it all. (Secretly, I think he enjoyed it!)
I enjoyed capturing Ludi in the jump seat drifting in silent thought staring out the window, and I wondered what he was thinking... Most likely, he was just wondering when I would be finished taking my 50 photos of him, but I like to think he was day dreaming about being back in the Philippines and showing off his dance moves.
