United Airlines flight attendant Jane Doucette was awarded $50,000 for service she provided to Honolulu resident Jonipher Kwong on a flight to Los Angeles over the summer.

Doucette, based in Houston, won the grand prize cash award as part of $125,000 United awarded to employees in its Outperform Recognition Program. For nominating the grand prize winner, Kwong received a voucher for two round-trip tickets valid for international travel aboard United.

Fifteen more employees were awarded sums ranging from $25,000 to $2,500 as part of the program, while customers who nominated them were awarded frequent flyer mileage.

Ditto, they have their minds in the gutter, or something like that. It's unfair to this young lady who must have extended herself to aid the traveler. Thus, the accolades heaped upon this lady for advancing her employer's interests.

Poor reporting. Shouldn't submit articles which don't tell the whole story and leaves readers with questions. Everyone would have liked to know what kind of service she provided to earn the generous grand cash prize.

Should have had Allison Schaffers do this story. She obviously gets paid by the word. This story would have been 15 paragraphs long. Still wouldn't have learned anything but it would have taken you 20 minutes to read it.
