For most of us, Christmas is all about spending time together as a family. Unfortunately, that isn’t always a doable task. However, one man was prepared to go above and beyond to spend time with his daughter, 42,000ft above to be precise thanks to some Christmas flights.
When a father named Hal found out that his daughter, Pierce, would be working over the Christmas period, he knew he had to bring the festive spirit to her.
Pierce works as a flight attendant and she was booked to be working a whole lot of flights over the Christmas period. But Hal didn’t want his daughter to miss Christmas with the family – so he brought Christmas to her.
“But how?” I hear you ask. Well, Hal booked himself onto every one of her Christmas flights on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day to spend it with her.
Mike Levy was sat next to Hal on the plane. He got to know him a little bit and he learned of his story which he shared on Facebook:
I had the pleasure of sitting next to Hal on my flight back home. His daughter Pierce was our flight attendant who had to work over Christmas. Hal decided he would spend the holiday with her. So, he is flying on each of her flights today and tomorrow around the country to spend time with his daughter for Christmas. What a fantastic father! Wish you both a very Merry Christmas!
As a result, Mike’s post ended up going viral with many people applauding this loving father’s actions.
Due to the publicity her dad’s story has received, Hal’s daughter, Pierce Vaughan, explained on Facebook how much her dad used his family flight benefits with Delta Airlines to spend it with her.
Dad’s first trip using his benefits was a success! A special thanks to all of the patient, wonderful gate agents around the country and my perfect crew. He made it on every flight and even got first class RSW-DTW (Christmas miracle). Shoutout to Mike Levy for being a great first class passenger & helping us to understand how cool this actually is!
