Flight attendant Teresa Benhoff, 48, of Easton, Md was working on the flight destined for Atlantic City.

Benhoff's husband, Daniel, said she had worked for Katz for 16 years, traveling regularly to places such as Florida and New York.

"She was his main flight attendant," he said. "She went everywhere with him."

Benhoff got to know Katz's children and late wife over the years, he said, and had known his grandchildren since they were born. She spent much of the last 16 years on call for Katz, who sometimes made last-minute decisions to fly.

But she loved her job, he said, and was looking forward to a few more years before she planned to retire. She and her husband divided their time between Easton and their second home, in Ocean City, Md.

"We loved our time together," Daniel Benhoff said. "She loved the beach - we'd just sit on the beach for hours and talk."

Married since 2007, Daniel Benhoff said he had known his wife for years through family friends.

"I fell in love with her from day one, and I couldn't go back," he said. "It was easy to fall in love with her. . . . It's unthinkable what happened."
