Lynn Sowa of Atlantic, Hartford-Brainard HFD was fantastic!
Before arriving, we called ahead… giving Atlantic an ETA which would be near the restaurant's kitchen closing-time.
After arriving HFD in our Cirrus later than expected, Lynn told us she assured the restaurant-manager we were enroute and would arrive soon. As a result, “Wings Sports Bar & Grill” remained open just for our late-night dinner! Wow, talk about exceptional customer service!
We topped-off our tanks and enjoyed a tasty meal. Kitchen-staff was kind and accommodating.
Huge THANKS go out to Lynn and the “Wings Sports Bar & Grill”.
We will return!
On Monday, January 20, 2014 my friend and I stopped by in our Cirrus SR20 for fuel around 5pm. We arrived from KGPT Gulfport, MS. enroute to KBNA Nashville,TN. Bessemer is a fine airport to drop in for a break. Runway was in excellent condition and the movement-areas were outlined in cool modern LED lights. Receptionist at the desk was helpful and professional. Lineman who greeted us on the ramp was the best! A cool guy. I asked him for a "top-off" and jokingly said, "stuff our bird with as much fuel you can fit in and when you do, pump in some more." I believe he said, "be careful what you ask for". Fuel prices were reasonable. When we returned to our airplane, the lineman fueled a true top-off! Every cubic inch in our tanks were loaded with 100LL! Nice! We departed to Nashville with smiles on our faces. Thank you Mr. Lineman and the crew at The Bessemer Airport FBO! You rock!
