A devoted Ohio father named Hal had a special surprise for his daughter this Christmas Eve and Christmas Day! Christmas is all about family and this dad proved once again for it to be so.
Since his flight attendant daughter was shifted to work over the Christmas period, he had booked multiple flights so he could spend Christmas with her. The warm story was shared by a passenger named Mike Levy who was sitting next to Hal.
On a Facebook post that has garnered thousands of comments and likes, Mike wrote:
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!
According to what Levy told USA TODAY, Hal said that he booked six flights in total. What a lovely father!
People gushed over the devoted father as the story was beyond heartwarming. One Facebook user commented:
This made me cry… I would love to share it. A story worth telling this time of year!
The next one said:
Probably the best Christmas story I’ve heard this year
Hal’s daughter – Pierce Vaughan also took to Facebook to tell that father and daughter made it over the flights:
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).
Hal really looks to have experienced a special kind of Christmas cheer aboard on flights together with his daughter!
