Dad booked six flights just to be with flight attendant daughter over Christmas

Dad booked six flights just to be with flight attendant daughter over Christmas

"This just warms my heart."

People are flooding to social media in awe of a dad after he booked six flights to spend Christmas with his daughter.

An air hostess for Delta Airlines had to work over the festive period, spending the special day in the air rather than on land with her family.

However, her dad decided to go above and beyond to make sure she wasn't alone on Christmas day. Prepare for your heart to melt:

Mike Levy shared images of himself sat next to the dad on one of his six flights, as well as Hal Vaughan's daughter, Pierce.

The post - first uploaded to Facebook in 2018, but having recirculated this year - reads: "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!"

And Facebook users are flooding to the post in praise of the dad and wishing him and his daughter a merry Christmas and happy new year.

One person said: "Aww that's so sweet. Dads are the best."

"Best Dad ever. In these days I love these special stories," another added.

A third commented: "Oh my gosh, how sweet of him, this just warms my heart."

"What an awesome Dad! She will remember this forever!" a fourth added.

And a final resolved: "That's Just awesome Love hearing there is Fathers out there that love their kids."

Hal told FOX that he's 'happy on the air or on the ground' at Christmas - just as long as he's 'with [his] daughter'.

He even got bumped up to First Class on the flight from Florida to Michigan.

Thankfully, in 2022, Pierce was allowed Christmas off for the 'first time'.

She said: "I’m so very grateful to have the chance to spend quality time with both of my parents in south Mississippi this month!

"The last few years have been incredibly busy and seem to fly by faster than I can hold on, so I’m really looking forward to a Christmas at ‘home, home’ when so many other places have grown to feel like home."

Let's hope the daughter and dad duo had a lovely Christmas this year too!
