A 10-year-old girl scout from Lebanon made a sales pitch to one of the biggest airlines in the country in an effort to sell more cookies this season.

Isabella Wittrig, member of girl scout troop 2945, thought about contacting Southwest Airlines after a recent trip to ask if they would sell cookies on their plane.

“She is picky, and on the plane she didn't like the snacks graciously provided by the airline, and we thought, wouldn't it be great if they would sell girl scout cookies?” said Donna Wittrig, Isabella's mother.

Isabella contacted Southwest, who then told her she could contact the CEO.

“They said that I could call Mr. Gary Kelley, so then we did it, and he was on a trip so we decided to make a sweet letter. And I wrote one, then we e-mailed it,” she told Nashville's News 2.

A package arrived on the Wittrig's doorstep Friday.

Isabella received a nice note from Kelley, explaining why he couldn't buy cookies from her, but that he does support his local girl scout troop and thanked her for writing.

She also received a Southwest piggy bank, and the family was excited to get the package and acknowledgement.
