Hey American Airlines … it’s not wise to upset a Wookie!

Too late for an apology, American Airlines! You have failed Chewie for the last time:
@TheWookieeRoars We didn't mean to spoil your birthday! Please DM your assistants info and we'll see what we can do.

Happy birthday, Mr. Mayhew … and thanks for the memories.
