Airline Crew Gives 5-Year-Old Solo Flyer the Flight of a Lifetime
Five-year-old Aisley Schatz was flying solo aboard a Southwest Airlines flight to finally come home after visiting her grandparents in Los Angeles California. While flying alone is usually a stressful endeavor especially for young ones, the airline crew of flight 2427 had made Aisley’s solo-flight experience comfortable and pleasantly memorable.
Aisley’s mom, Natesha, shared her daughter’s flight story on Facebook, detailing the many wonderful things done by the flight attendant, the captain, and other members of the flight crew.
For one, Aisley was able to get in touch with her mom during the layover with the help of a flight attendant who selflessly shared her personal hand phone to make the video-call possible.
“While she was on the plane during the layover she tried calling me using her tablet and she obviously wasn’t able to. The wonderful flight attendant allowed my daughter to FaceTime with me using her own personal phone,” wrote Natesha.
The captain also made sure Aisley was well fed by buying her food.“Then a few minutes later she [the flight attendant] texted me saying the captain of the plane went and purchased my daughter chicken tender strips,” Natesha continued in her post.
Aisley’s mom made sure to let the public know of the generosity and kindness of everyone on the flight considering that it is also important to celebrate positive stories like this to balance out the excessive negativity on the news.
“With all of the negativity going around with airline companies and their employees I want to point out these three wonderful employees you guys have and I want to give them a shout out for taking care of my daughter by going above and beyond when it wasn’t something they had to do,” said Natesha.
