Shortly after finishing college in Miami in 1983 (MDCC), I moved back to my country of origin, Ecuador. I always had a fascination for airplanes and I joined EAL the same year and started to work in reservations. I was the only guy to be working in the reservations department and the first one ever! I had an incredible group of colleagues. Later I did ticketing and moved to airport to do departure and baggage services. I moved back to the main office in Quito to work in sales and promoting EAL through the travel agencies and training them with System One.
I only work there for approximately six years but up to this age, I am 54 now, I will always remember EAL like the first love of my life and to have worked with the most incredible group of people. Also EAL gave me the chance to have made so many friends from different stations, traveled the world extensively and all thanks to this airline. I was very happy to be part of it, I enjoyed every moment I worked there.
Thank you for taking the time to read this, I have so many anecdotes but I just wanted to make it nice and short.
