Dad flew with flight attendant daughter to keep her company
A father spent two days jetting across the US with his flight attendant daughter so he could spend time with her over Christmas.
Pierce Vaughan works as a flight attendant for Delta Airlines and was scheduled to work December 24 and 25, even though her father Hal was desperate to spend the festive season with her.
Mike Levy, from Ohio, said Hal decided to join his daughter Pierce on her flights on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
“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,” the 31-year-old wrote on Facebook.
“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!”
Speaking to ABC News, Mike added,
“I thought that it was extremely special of him to do for his daughter, so that she didn’t have to spend Christmas Eve alone.”
Pierce also shared an update on Facebook, writing to her mum Kimberly that dad and daughter “made it” and also managed to land a first class upgrade for one of the flights.
She went on,
“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).”
She also gave a shout out to Mike “for being a great first class passenger & helping us to understand how cool this actually is!”
