As told by Airport Operations Crewmember Reneé :
If you grew up in the 70’s then you grew up with TV shows you could watch with the entire family! (unlike the junk of today! 🙁 ) If you grew up during this era, you too wished your family played in a band and toured the country in a bus, hitting amusement parks and every touristy destination in the United States!
To many of us, David Cassidy a.k.a. Keith Partridge was our ‘first love!’ He was to us then what I guess Justin Bieber is now! Girls screamed, cried and chased him like the Beatles. I remember playing my 45 with the silver label from bell records of his #1 song, ” I Think I Love You!” about a million times. It was a time of Partridge Family lunch boxes, albums, and David on the cover of every teen magazine!
When David Cassidy checked in with my co worker Ivy I immediately recognized him and well, did not do such a good job of concealing my excitement! He was very humbled by the love, thankfully, and spent quite some time with me. It was hard to believe I was walking and talking with my first ever ‘crush’! I remembered the time I sent a letter to his fan club, knowing full well it never made it, as I was too young to even know how to address the envelope!
David’s travels on JetBlue were taking him to New York for a surprise guest appearance on Good Morning America in regards to his recently published book, “I think I love you.” I have heard from David Cassidy since his departure on JetBlue and with all his positive compliments we may hear a next new hit entitled, ” I think I Love Blue!” I can definitely say that our CrewMembers in Orlando were a big hit with this famous 70’s Icon!
