American Airlines brings back children’s pilot wings

MIAMI INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT, FLA. (WSVN) - American Airlines is bringing back its Children’s Wings as Pilots pins.

The small plastic pins will be handed out by flight attendants and are offered as a token to share the love of flying.

“We’re happy to bring the wings back, and I think they’re great because children are the future, and it’s a great way to set the tone for a memorable flight,” said flight attendant Javier Garçon.

It’s been 10 years since American Airlines last handed out the pins to children on board its flights.
