Kind Man Gave His First Class Seat To 94-Yr-Old Woman Who Was Having Difficulty Getting To Back Of Plane

When an elderly woman was having difficulty getting to her seat in the back of a plane, a kind man offered and gave her his first class seat.

Laura Failner, a SkyWest flight attendant, witnessed the beautiful moment of kindness and shared it in a post online.

“I love looking for the good in the world! As I flew up to Washington today, I had this cute little 94-year-old lady get on my plane,” Laura shared.

The 94-year-old woman was having a difficult time getting to her seat, which was in the back of the plane, and a kind man sitting in first class noticed.

“She was frail and had a hard time getting back to her seat. There was a bit of confusion about where she was supposed to be seated. In first-class, this wonderful gentleman saw her plight and flagged me down. He said, “can you please get her and put her in my seat, and I will take hers.” He walked back with me to get her and take her to first class.”

The 94-year-old woman was deeply moved by the man’s kindness.

“She was so touched. The woman gave him a big hug and said, “Never in my 94 years has someone done that for me. Thank you, young man.”

“She had tears of gratitude. It was amazing how his thoughtful act changed the attitude of everyone on the flight. May we all look for the little things we can do to help others around us and show kindness.”

Thousands of hearts online have appreciated the man’s kindness for the 94-year-old woman.

“Most wonderful thing I have read all day! Thank you for your kindness!” commented Ginger S.

“Thank you sir for your kindness, you’re a blessing. These are the news stories that need to be on the front page,” wrote Kim A.

“Amen, God Bless you. Thank you for sharing compassion and may you both have a nice friendship to grow,” shared Michelle N.

You are Loved.
