Five days a week, Takisha Gower leaves her Euless home for her 6 a.m. shift as a passenger service agent at DFW International Airport, where she’ll spend the next several hours boarding flights, helping people who’ve missed connections and, occasionally, talking down a customer who’s having a really bad day.

Although the passengers bought their tickets through American Airlines, Gower works for the company’s Envoy Air subsidiary, which operates regional flights for the Fort Worth-based carrier under the American Eagle brand.
