Virgin Atlantic Cabin Crew Member Reveals Her Two Favourite Passengers
When the internet is full of bad news, it's always nice to read a heartwarming story and this is quite honestly one of the best.
Meet Jack and Violet - two of Virgin Atlantic employee Leah Amy's favourite passengers to look after from the hundreds of flights she has operated.
Why, you might wonder - well, it turns out that Jack is the ultimate LAD and went on a mission to find 88-year-old Violet so that he could offer her his seat in upper class.
Taking to Facebook, Leah explained: "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!"
She continued: "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 88 years 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."
Leah's post has since racked up nearly 4,000 likes and 1,200 shares with people one person writing: "Can't cope with this...who knew my heart could actually smile...this needs to go viral...beautiful".
Another added: "This is so so lovely! What an amazing guy and a well deserving lady," while a third commented: "This is the best thing ever. What a story and what a guy! Wow, thank you for sharing, I have taken something from this and I'm sure lots of other people will."
It turns out that Violet's family members also saw the post and one commented: "All I can say is thank you Jack and Wow! I really appreciate the kindness you extended to my Aunt Vie (Violet). God bless you and God bless Leah Amy for sharing this and taking care of my Aunt on your excellent airline."
