Southwest pilot cheered for retrieving passenger’s phone from cockpit window

A Southwest Airlines captain went above and beyond the call of duty — when he reached out his window to retrieve a phone that a passenger had left behind before boarding.

Video posted by the airline shows the pilot sticking out the cockpit window to grab a phone from a ramp worker after the plane had already left the gate at Long Beach Airport.

The owner had left the device behind before boarding and the plane had already pushed back when a passenger on another flight noticed the phone and alerted ground staff.

The gate agents quickly sprang into action.

“They quickly passed the phone to our Ramp Agents, who jumped it up to the Captain to get it back to the Customer,” the airline said on Facebook.

The short clip shows a ramp worker jumping to deliver the phone to the captain amid cheers from people at the gate area.

“We love seeing the goodwill efforts of our Employees helping out a fellow Passenger,” a Southwest spokesperson told DCNewsNow in a statement.
