My condolences

Greg, my condolences to you and your family.


There were 3 items about which “Uncle Andy” continually shared his pride and love…his family, Chicago and Delta Air Lines. During the days at the CVG Sky Club, he shared the stories and memories and our guests loved it! He added a lot of zing to our days and we shall miss him. Blessings to the Kugali family from “young” Martha as he called me.


I worked with Andy at the CVG airport. He always had a smile on his face. Andy was very pleasant to work with. He will be missed. He and your family are in our payers.

Andy was one of a kind. He always had a smile on his face and could light up a room with his cheerful personality.
I will remember Andy as a dear friend and a Delta Brother. Rest In Peace.

Great Delta Professional

Andy was the best ever at his job. He always greeted his fellow employees at the morning briefings with a loud “Good Morning Delta Professionals!”. I worked the gates with Andy at CVG FTO . I will always remember him as calling me a “youngster”. Best job ever and he made it better!! Rest in peace

I worked with Andy in Cincinnati (CVG) over a period of 18 years. Andy was very warm and responsive to the needs of our passengers and his fellow employee agents. He will be missed by all but remembered well by many. Mike Costello, Retired Delta

Andy Kugali

It was always hard to keep track of Andy when working a Delta flight here at CVG. He would be working as a gate agent and disappear down the jetway to clean the plane! He loved being involved at the airport so much he hired on with a separate company to work Delta’s Sky Club after he retired!
May his family and friends cherish all those memories and find peace. I know we do.
Fly High Andy!
Jim & Kit Palmer


I was so sorry to read of Andy’s passing. We both started our Delta careers in Chicago and ended in Cincinnati. He was someone I looked forward to running into and talking with even after retiring from Delta Air Lines. His positive attitude and smiles will be missed by many.
Ray Justinic ( CVG Chief Pilot ret.)


The world lost a very SPECIAL lad today, and certain you will be missed by more than I. The Lord will have a special place set aside for you, my friend! I wish you calm seas on your eternal journey! God Bless your Friends and Family at this difficult time! Jim Hester (Ret. ORD Delta)
