Stranger Gives Up First-Class Seat For 88-Year-Old

Cabin crew aren't supposed to have favorite passengers, however one Virgin Atlantic flight attendant couldn't help but warm to these two guests when one of them gave up his business class seat for an 88-year-old woman.

As a cabin crew member, you can fly multiple return flights a week with up to 500 passengers at a time.

Some of these passengers are more memorable than others, sometimes for positive reasons.

Leah, a Manchester-based flight attendant, couldn't help but write about her encounter with Jack and Violet.

In a flight between London and New York, Jack, a young plane passenger, gave up his upper-class cabin seat to an 88 year old sitting in economy.

Leah 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 favorite 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 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, detailed the crew member, but didn’t have a phone or an email address. These photos are getting sent in the post tomorrow, can you even cope.
