Aircraft travel is arguably the most anxiety-inducing kind of transportation. Yes, statistically speaking, they are the safest form of transportation, but that doesn’t help when turbulence strikes and you’re thousands of feet above the ground.
This could be the cause of airlines’ constant efforts to provide more pleasant travel options, such as first, business, and even luxury class options. However, there is a cost associated with it; some airlines charge as much as $2,000–$3,000 for an upper class ticket.
Well, a passenger on a flight to Washington never had to choose between comfort and money.
Flight attendant Laura Failner, who is well-versed in the highs and lows of aviation, witnessed this touching incident.
She was moved by it so much, in fact, that she told the tale on Facebook afterwards.
Here’s what happened.
“I love looking for the good in the world!
As I flew up to Washington today, I had this cute little 94 year old lady get on my plane. She was frail and had a hard time getting back to her seat. There was a bit of a confusion to where she was supposed to be seated. In first class this wonderful Gentleman saw her plight and flagged me down. He said, “can you please get her and put her in my seat and I will take hers.” He walked back with me to get her and take her to first class. She was so touched. The woman gave him a big hug and said “Never in my 94 years has someone done that for me. Thank you young man.” She had tears of gratitude.
It was amazing how his thoughtful act changed the attitude of everyone on the flight. May we all look for the little things we can do, to help others around us and show Christlike acts of kindness. In this crazy world let’s all try to Be the Good.”
Laura’s Facebook post received over 20,000 positive reactions and was shared more than 9,000 times.
The kind act by the man not only meant the world to the elderly woman but also touched the hearts of many others. Reflecting on this experience, Laura shared a message of hope and kindness. She encouraged everyone to embrace the spirit of Christ in their actions and actively seek opportunities to spread love and kindness in their everyday lives.
