Meet MIA Employee of the Year, Jose Consuegra – MIA hotel desk clerk and miracle worker. In May, Jose was on duty and received a call from a frantic mother whose baby girl had stopped breathing. The mother rushed down to the hotel lobby with her baby and Jose jumped into action providing CPR, by the time the paramedics arrived, the baby was breathing on her own. As the ambulance was leaving the airport, Jose learned that incredibly the baby’s name was Mia.
Tonight Mia and her mother flew in from Haiti to finally thank the man who saved Mia’s life. “I am very grateful to Mr. Consuegra, and I will be grateful for the rest of my life,” said Mia’s mother.

Why is this team smiling? They’re part of our Lost and Found super star team that last year reunited 12,000 items with their owners. MIA’s Lost and Found office is one of the largest in the U.S. and is home to items such as human remains, thousands of suitcases and laptops, priceless family photos and a menagerie of stuff animals. Patti, Concha and Pierre (L-R) and the rest of the team process 120 items each day, 61,000 items last year. With almost 90 years of experience at MIA, this team really is MIA Heroes. Concha speaks for the whole team when she says, “We just love what we do."

In 1989, we sent a teddy bear to a Nikki, a 4 year-old in the U.K. who lost her teddy at MIA. Twenty eight years later, Nikki returned to MIA to thank the Good Samaritan who sent her the bear. “He travels everywhere I go,” Nikki told Dickie Davis, our Public Relations & Digital Marketing Director who in 1989 was a young Ops Supervisor. “I never dreamed this random act of kindness would make such an impact,” says Davis.

Congratulations to Customs and Border Protection employees, Officers Casale, Carmona, Naranjo and Ms. Hedditch, on being named our Employees of the month! Officer Casale and Ms. Hedditch encountered a passenger who was having issues standing up. When they approached the passenger they learned that her husband had gone to look for a wheelchair for her and had been gone for a long time. It turns out that the husband suffered from dementia, and the passenger was worried that he was lost and would not be able to find his way back. Officers Cremona and Naranjo were dispatched to help located the husband, and Ms. Hedditch went on search of a wheelchair while Officer Casale stayed with the passenger. The four Customs and Border employees assisted the passenger for an hour and, “went above and beyond their call of duty in ensuring that two elderly MIA travelers received excellent customer service.”
Time to buckle up and enjoy the ride – it’s the weekend! Thanks for sharing, Julio.
Thankful for all our passengers and employees. Hope your #Thanksgiving

Traveling's not something you're good at.
It's something you do.
