Mum posts touching tribute to man who gave up first class aeroplane seat to her and her baby

we love 11/12/2018

A mum has posted a touching tribute to a stranger after his kind gesture. The mum was flying her young daughter to a bigger city for an appointment at a children's hospital, lugging a pram, nappy bag and oxygen machine through the airport to the gate.

When they got on the plane, and got settled into their economy window seat, an air hostess tapped them on the shoulder and said that there was a man wanting to swap seats with the mum.

She was blown away when the air hostess further explained that the man was currently seated in first-class, but saw her in the airport earlier and wanted to give her and her daughter a comfier flight.

The mum said in her touching post to the man that she was unable to hold back tears as she walked up the aisle to her new allocated seat.

Thank you. Not just for the seat itself but for noticing. For seeing us and realizing that maybe things are not always easy. For deciding you wanted to show a random act of kindness to US. It reminded me how much good there is in this world. I can’t wait to tell Lucy someday. In the meantime... we will pay it forward.
