Though Shakespeare rendered Romeo in linen and velvet, we all know a true champion of love rocks a tailored blazer and a smile for the masses. Toss in a complimentary pair of headphones and a swoon-worthy upgrade, and it’s clear: travel personnel put the ‘it’ in ‘hospitality’ and, for that, we affectionately salute them.
Minibar toast, anyone?
We must admit, however, it’s tricky to find a way to say I love you or even Thank you for pretending my roller bag isn’t broken amid the hustle and bustle of final boarding and check-in. Therefore, with ease and aptness in mind, we teamed up with illustrator Alessandra Olanow to create printable Valentine’s Day cards specifically designed for everyone you’ll meet along your trip. Below you’ll find sweet nothings for airport and hotel staff, as well as a lil somethin’ somethin’ for your favourite travel partner.
Print, personalise and prepare to make somebody feel as special as Group 1 boarding.
For airport personnel
You’re never on standby in my heart
I need two bins to hold all my respect for you
I’m falling for you like an uncooperative tray table
For hotel staff
Valentine, I can’t turn-down my feelings for you
Concierge, connect me to a medic… I’m lovesick for you
You have the keycard to my heart
For your travel companion
I wore my formal neck pillow for you
You are the Lewis to my Clark
For you I would take the middle seat
