On a Virgin Airlines flight across the Atlantic Ocean from New York City to the United Kingdom, a flight attendant Leah Amy witnessed one of the most heart-warming, selfless acts she’s ever seen.

The Story From Start To Finish

Before we tell you what the selfless act was, let’s go back to the beginning of the story. A man named Jack and his family purchased first-class seats and were waiting at the airport for the plane to arrive.

As they waited Jack struck up a great conversation with an 88-year-old woman named Violet who found out Jack was sitting in first class and she told him it was always her dream to ride at the front of the plane.

Without her expecting it, when they got on the plane Jack decided to trade his upper-class cabin for Violet’s economy seat that was right beside the smelly bathrooms. Flight attendant, Leah Amy, saw this happen and it completely melted her heart.

Leah says she’s operated hundreds of flights and she thought the football players, supermodels, and actors were her favorite passengers but after witnessing this she says Jack and Violet are her new “favorite passengers.”

He made this elderly lady’s dream come true purely out of the kindness of his heart. Leah says Violet was so happy when she came to tuck her in and give her dinner. Violet wanted a picture to show her daughter who she said would never believe that she rode first class.

Violet didn’t have a phone so Leah took pictures of Jack and Violet with her phone. Violet also didn’t provide Leah with a phone number or email so Leah jotted down her address and says she plans to get the pictures sent to Violet through the post office. Leah then posted the pictures and shared her experience on Facebook where it got a lot of attention, likes, shares, and comments. Take a look below.
