This story is from 2019, but it’s super heartwarming and deserves to be shared; it’s about a Virgin Atlantic flight attendant who witnessed a pure gesture of love and humanity.

A man shared his first-class seat with an 88-year-old woman, making her immensely happy. He swapped his seat with the woman – who was flying economy.

The Story

Leah Amy, the flight attendant, shared this emotional and wholesome story on Facebook. She wrote:

“Of the hundreds of flights I’ve operated, I’ve had the pleasure of looking after footballers, supermodels and some Hollywood movie stars but let me tell you about my two favourite passengers EVER!”

“Jack and Violet 💜 (I wish she was called Vera or Rose 🤣)”

“Jack and his family purchased seats In our upper class cabin for a flight home from New York, but when he got onboard, Jack went and found violet in economy and swapped seats with her.”

“He then sat on the row of seats directly next to the economy toilets and never made a peep or asked for anything the rest of the flight. No fuss, no attention, literally did it out of the kindness of his own heart, no one asked him too.”

“Violet is 88years old, has been a nurse in both the UK and over in America. She travels to New York to see her daughter, but hasn’t been able to for a while because of a knee replacement. Her dream has always been to sit at the front, and Jack made that come true.”

“You should of seen her face, when I tucked her in her bed after supper ☺️”
She said her daughter won’t believe her, and wanted a ‘selfie’ to prove it, but didn’t have a phone or an email address. These photos are getting sent in the post tomorrow, can you even cope 😩😍❤️😭😊”

In today’s world, stories like this make us have faith in humanity and believe that kindness will forever exist and overpower negativity. Jack, thank you for being an incredible human being!

  1. Who are the parents or guardians of Jack? Surely, Jack is raised well in parents who are compassionate and raised Jack with good manners and right conduct. I salute u Jack. Seldom now we find such a good heart.
