Employee Spotlight: Brad DiFore

What is your favorite part of your job?
BD: I really appreciate the opportunity to work in the field I’ve always wanted to work in, in the industry I’ve always loved, with the most amazing people anybody could want to work with. Ultimately, our industry is built on long-term relationships. They are definitely my favorite part of the job.

Favorite Airplane?
BD: Today and always, the Lockheed L-1011 TriStar. I haven’t flown on one yet, but I’m pretty sure the A220 will be a favorite as well.

Jonathon Nield – Sr. Manager, Network Planning

Have you always had a passion for aviation?
JN: I remember my first flight when I was seven years old from Salt Lake City to Los Angeles on a Delta 757 and being completely fascinated with the power I felt on takeoff. Immediately I fell in love with flying. I’m likely one of the odd avgeeks out there that never really had an interest in becoming a pilot so never considered a career in aviation until college when I suddenly realized I could make a career out of my love for flying on the business side, which is where my true interest was.
